Other countries/regions are making progressive strides, but it feels like we’re sliding backwards.

(I still think we should capitalize on this moment and bring way more people to the fediverse.)

I use Mastodon network instead to twitter, so I don’t really care about twitter. I never liked it.

Why does it make you discouraged?

Other countries/regions are making progressive strides, but it feels like we’re sliding backwards.

To me it’s just a confirmation that accumulation of wealth is not something to wish for. One person – or a small group of people – shouldn’t be able to make this kind of decision on their own.

Very little if not nothing changes for Twitter. They’re losing a marginal amount of users, just like every time there’s a scandal around Facebook, some people leave, but the vast majority stays and they still benefit from network effect and will do for the foreseeable future.

I’m trying not to be pessimistic but it’s not an easy exercise.

Are you an Anarchist? The answer might surprise you!

Rules:

  1. Be respectful
  2. Don’t be a nazi
  3. Argue about the point and not the person
  4. This is not the place to debate the merits of anarchism itself. While discussion is encouraged, getting in your “epic dunks on the anarkiddies” is not. As a result of the instance’s poor moderation policies and hostility toward anarchists by default, lemmygrad users are encouraged not to post here, though not explicitly disallowed if they aren’t just looking to start a fight.
