@risabee Yeah, it's strange that as a kid I just kinda thought "well the Beatles broke up so that's it" and it's taken me this long to realize it's more like "they don't release albums as 'The Beatles' anymore".
I'm thoroughly enjoying my Beatles renaissance :D
@clayton Don't tease me! I thought the SCLF was a real thing for a second there, and now I'm sad 😢
But yeah, I'd imagine it wouldn't be hard to take the ideals of the Free Software movement to the logical conclusion that if non-free software serves to oppress the people then people with access to that software's source have a moral obligation to set it free...

"This was a group of so-called alt-right protesters who decided that a socialist bookshop, which stocks radical literature and working-class history titles and provides stalls for national trade union conferences, was a legitimate target for violence."

The fact that FLOSS ethics is not a part of the wider political progressive movement is so tragic to me.
Social and economic progress rely on changing the underlying systems in place, systems which are already rapidly changing... thanks to technology. But if that technology isn't free, libre, and open, how could we possibly have true social+economic progress come out of it?
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
