if you consider facism, "not that much of a problem", consider that it is because of your social status.
And if you then also consider acting against facism is actually facism you lost your mind to the far right, as those 2 thoughts are exclusionary to each other by logic. If you can't grasp it, read:

Live streaming of @EUCouncil@twitter.com ministers talking about the #CopyrightDirective.
According to that, the directive was already approved by vote. Here is how individual countries voted.
We know that because twitter doesn't have #UploadFilters *yet*. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to share it now, or even have a discussion about it.
