We, you and I, have a chance to fix this. We, you and I, can rebuild and repair.

We can:
- Make user friendly (not user hostile) devices and software
- Write documentation
- Refuse to buy tech that *we* can render safe to use, but that the average user can't
- Support people that do things correctly financially whenever possible.

My point is (and has been, for weeks) that we are ignoring the users.

We used to care about users. We wanted users to adopt hardware and software. We wanted users to be productive and secure.

Vendors cared about the user experience.

Now, everything is user hostile. Everything is trying to screw you, or spy on you, or just isn't engineered with your safety in mind.

YOU: Hey bud, working hard or hardly working? Hahaha
ME: Hardly working, but in the sense that a shattered marionette is hardly working. In so breaking, I have broken away from the normative values that once controlled me; but in the process, my guiding narrative and image have also been deconstructed and scattered; and so in light of this, my animating urge must be rebuilt along some new mode, or I will simply be swept into the garbage

@neil an often overlooked aspect of cooperatives (at least based on what I read and saw so far) is that they are FAR better at protecting workers' rights than any union will ever be: when the sets of those who work and those who own the means of production overlap, the "dictatorship of the proletariat" is complete...

"It was not an accidental occurrence or for flippant reasons that Karl Marx and Mikhail Bakunin saw cooperative economics and labor self-management as useful tools in the struggle for socialism and the undermining of capitalism."
