- Is better than recycling
- Saves you money
- Teaches engineering
- Saves the planet

Maybe enviro-incels can be useful if we get them fighting against DRM, against DLC and for the right to repair.

Robert Heinlein's The Door into Summer is probably the most realistic view of future economy I've yet encountered. In it manufacturing is redundant just to employ the 20 billion people. Things are made just to be destroyed and melted down in order to be made again.

@orbifx I need War on Entropy on a tshirt/bumper sticker/other-means-of-displaying-in-public.

@orbifx "Repair is war on entropy" is one of the best things I've heard all decade.

@NotThatHaig @orbifx The best way to visualize 3R (reuse repair recycle) is "you should keep the entropy of an item as low as possible".

@orbifx

On that note, many locales have repair cafes if you want to learn or have someone else do it for free/cheap: repaircafe.org/
