After about a month offline, I finally figured out how to deploy Mastodon docker images to Dokku so I didn't need to keep my stupid Procfile fork around.

It seems like the argument is equivalent to "those who choose not to spend money commuting or at Pret, or on office rent, should have that money extracted from their pay/profits".
Maybe just... tax everyone who still has a job to help support those who don't?
