Bill Gates made his money by extinguishing
free software and forcing us to pay him a tax
just to turn our computers on. This was only
possible because the State was ready to
violently enforce his "intellectual property".
He didn't created a computer revolution, he

Zuckerberg made his money in the exact
same way, of course — by destroying an free
social network. A social network was bound
to emerge, what Zuckerberg did was prevent
it from following open protocols, like email,
so just anyone couldn't set up a server to
socialize with anyone.

To say these people added value to the world
and therefore "deserve" their billions is
absurd. They subtracted value, an enormous
amount of value, and stymied progress to
seize control and extract wealth. Computers
and the internet would be more advance if
they had never existed.

@johnnymac Why aren't Existential Comics on Masto? Such a shame!
@johnnymac kinda weird that existential comics ignores the existence of MySpace and high5 or whatever and other social networks that already existed... not necessarily wrong about the potential, but it's not like Facebook was the first major social network to exist
@lesbianhacker yes, it isn't a perfect statement (or beautiful), but the truthiness is there!
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
