Is there something like HackerNews but not infested by Silly Valley's libertarian STEMlords and VC-bootlicking hustlers?
>>

 No.1831

Don't know about a site similar to HaackerNews but leftist in that way, but look into the Euro/German hacker community, like Chaos Computer Club / Chaos Communication Congress (AKA "CCC" and "C3"), there's a lot of appearances in that sphere of far-/ultra-left types.
Sites/communities that come to mind are also Mastodon, Matrix and Diaspora.

I sometimes browse lobste.rs since it's less obvious the blatant liberalness of everything.
I also sometimes browse lainchan but it's a very slow board and not really a news aggregator type site.
>>1843
I found out about it stalking Elm's cute twink creator. What I really want (I'm not OP) is a place that isn't riddled with shit liberal takes (bootlicking, self-help shit, entrepreneur bullshit, VC dicksucking, etc). The problem with that is that there's not a lot of "true" leftists in the first place, that are also software devs, that are also interested in discussion. Here and lainchan is the best place I have found.

I wouldn't be surprised if 5G health conspiracy theories are themselves perpetuated by tech industry to steer opposition and paint it as loonies. All they need to do then is ensure the general public that it's not dangerous to your health. Both sides of the debate (the "stupid conspiracy theorists" and the "enlightened intellectuals") took the bait.
The actual question is what 5G tech entails politically. Do we want to live in smart cities where everything is recorded, interconnected, optimized and managed by algorithms, so that the existing social order is never disturbed?

Anti-G5 is a completely rational response to over a century of corporations knowingly lying out their ass about the health effects of their products (from cigarettes to fossil fuels to BPA to Roundup to fracking run off to Tamiflu and beyond) and G5 infrastructure being pushed out quickly with no consultation of communities.

HackerNews is the fucking worst community. I know someone who is reactionary-lite, and constantly talks about how terrible reddit is (no shit) so he moved to HackerNews because it's a more "sensible, non-biased" community. a community that consists of libertarian incels that make 200k a year bitching constantly about minorities/shit that does not affect them. cringe.

i think this board is the closest thing to what OP is looking for, but after seeing the massive walls of text over completely unrelated shit further down this thread, i'm not so sure.

I agree about hacker news. I'd say they are a mix of steven pinker (neo-)liberals and "rational" libertarians. Interestingly, I saw a comment on hacker news saying that "if I wanted to know that vaccines cause autism, [other fake conspiracies theories], I'd go to reddit, not here", implying reddit is a schizo asylum. Interesting because I assumed reddit was mostly a liberal le I fucking love science circle jerk.

I mentioned it before, https://lobste.rs is the only tech news site I can tolerate, besides the subreddits of specific technology, eg r/haskell, etc. Tech, as it exists now, is tied to politics and to capitalism more generally, you can't really escape that, so you'll occasionally see bad takes.

I saw that lemmy shit but I'm just so burnt from reddit that seeing the interface gave me PTSD.

Yep. HN sometimes gets decent links posted when they're not praising some randumb-messpelynk.io for advancing the state of the art on disrupting labour laws and user privacy, or fapping to Paul Graham's latest brainfart. But the community makes a really compelling case for nuking San Francisco.

OP here. Since then, I haven't found anything significant besides this board, but there's a new small sub https://www.reddit.com/r/techtakes/ where people dunk on HN reactionaries and PG's dumb takes.

It is an offshoot from https://www.reddit.com/r/SneerClub/ where folks dunk on the "rationalist" community stars (mostly Eliezer Yudkowsky and Scott "Alexander" Siskind).
