Early on during a pregnancy you could say that there isn’t even any life yet (there isn’t really a medical or philosophical consensus). With what you’re saying, abstinence or using a condom would be just as “bad” as an abortion, as you would be deliberately denying the creation of life. As far as I know, mifepristone mostly comes into use within the early stages of a pregnancy where it’s hard to say whether there is even any life yet or not.
Lastly, I don’t think it’s fair being happy to disallow half the population from making their own moral or medical decisions just because that doesn’t align with your own personal philosophy. No one is forcing abortions onto anyone, so if anyone believes that abortions are unethical then they don’t have to get one. Everyone should have the freedom to choose.
For me, there is no way ethical justification other than to avoid to collapse of the business so that the workers don’t lose their jobs. However, profits in a Capitalist system may be well justified by the capital owners as they are often used to stay competitive. But then again the whole system is entirely unethical and unjustifiable.
Although I haven’t finished playing it yet, Metro Exodus is a really good game. It’s an open world post-apocalyptic FPS with an intriguing storyline.
The first two games (Metro 2033, Metro Last Light) are also pretty good but aren’t open world. Metro 2033 also has somewhat of a horror aspect to it. The world building is fantastic!
The entire Metro trilogy is quite good, but specifically Metro Exodus is probably the one most similar to Fallout. And AFAIK it’s also available on GOG. (Last Light and Exodus also have native Linux versions)
I have a Vega 64 myself and its pretty good. Most games run perfectly on high graphics settings and my experience with the drivers are seamless since they are fully integrated within the Linux kernel. One thing to note is that Freesync sadly doesnt work on a multi monitor setup with X11 (it only really works with Wayland and the Sway window manager).
I have never had any firsthand experience with a 1080 TI, but from what I hear the drivers aren’t very fun to deal with. Aside from that, performance should be somewhat similiar with some experiences being better and worse on both sides.
I would highly recommend reading Less is More by Jason Hickel (An economic anthropologist from Eswatini). I’m also pretty interested in reading his book The Divide but it’s still only on my to read list. Maybe I’ll get to read it within the next few months.
Yup, and in this case the Soviets (/Russians) weren’t really portrayed as villians IMO.
The Boys isn’t much anti-Russian because (beware of Spoilers):
The captured super hero (Soldier Boy) was actually betrayed by his own comrades and then handed over to the Soviets. IIRC, this betrayal was even coordinated by the super hero company in order to profit off of their new, lab-grown super hero.
If anything, The Boys is more anti-US than anti-Russian due to its underlying anti-Capitalist/anti-Neoliberal messages (The US being more Capitalist than Russia in this case). The show also portrays corruption, illegal business and unethical practices conducted by companies in order to maximize profits. The show is mainly a criticism of Capitalism and Neoliberalism in the US and doesn’t really show anything having much to do with Russia.
Besides that, the most vile characters in the show are actually the american super heros themselves together with the company. From committing murders to doing drugs and even human trafficking. So, I think it’s fair to say that the show isn’t specifically anti-Russian.
A bit off-topic: there have also been initiatives to reduce the tax for oat milk. My favorite example is when multiple cafes came together for a protest to simply sell coffee with oat milk with a 7% tax instead of 19% (they sued themselves afterwards).
Inserting the community with the instance into the url when using the web UI also works. For example, if you would want to subscribe to the Technology community but you can’t find it with the search function, you could enter https://email@example.com to subscribe to the community. From what I’ve heard, communities not being searchable is because no one else from your instance subscribed to that community yet.
Sometimes when I’m in search of something from a specific genre, I head over to Bandcamp and look at a randomized list of Artists for that specific genre. Other times I’ll listen to something on Youtube and then take a look at the recommended Music related to what I’m already listening to.
Creating a Post on Lemmy asking for recommended Music could also be an option of course!

Is The New Oil the website you were referring to?
r/UpliftingNews could also be a contender when using Reddit.
You’re right. There’s even a section in the Docs dedicated to this topic.
The video you sent is way out of date…
Joe Biden and Olaf Scholz were both committed to take Nord Stream 2 offline. So what happened? Germany simply took it offline as a form of sanction against Russia. This has already happened over half a year ago and has absolutely nothing to do with Nord Stream 1. Besides, why destroy a pipeline that isn’t in use anymore?
You talk as if motives don’t matter when looking at who the perpetrator is. But motives are very important when looking at suspects. Neither the US nor NATO benefit in any way by destroying Nord Stream 1. So why would they do it?
