What about the 5m people who signed the petition against and the thousands of people who protested against the ?

"A new generation, who are voting for the first time this year, are learning a lesson. Your protests worth nothing, politicians will spread lies about you and won't care about factual arguments."

Artists have the right to make a living from their art, if they wish to.

But, to paraphrase, those who give up human rights (freedom of speech, privacy) to gain from intellectual property, deserve neither.

@ebassi I'm sorry, but I completely disagree with this conclusion.

As a black person who tries to push privacy, I push federation not for self-hosting, but for community-based hosting. It's a given that not everyone has the time or resources to put into hosting their own services. Federation empowers users to be able to trust their administrators or be them. This is invaluable for marginalized groups.

As a black person, it's a fact there are people who will attack me because of my blackness or because I speak to the issues black people face. On some centralized platforms, there wouldn't be recourse. I would have to hit report, wait for something to get through the moderation queue, and hope the user is banned. In a lot of cases, harassers are left on the platform.

With people like hosting communities for black people, all you have to do is DM your admin or a mod and they can prevent that user from harassing anyone else on the server.

Federation is not a "fuck you, got mine" system. It's a system we can use in order to protect each other.

" won't solve climate change", actual quote from event.

What an arrogance, to put bitcoin/climate on the same sentence and not address the elephant in the room. People blinded by their libertarian narrative, destroying the planet in the process.
