@bjoern @fsfe what I'm saying is that while the #FSF itself, and allied organisations like #FSFE, #EFF etc, *are* doing the political work, too many hackers seem to live in a cyberpunk dreamworld where they don't think what governments do can affect them. This response is a good example:
With the development of industrial capitalism, a new and unanticipated system of injustice, it is libertarian socialism that has preserved and extended the radical humanist message of the Enlightenment and the classical liberal ideals that were perverted into an ideology to sustain the emerging social order.

If you want to really de-googlify The Net, decentralized search engine should be the first step: http://yacy.net/
The sad thing is, YaCy's stuck in a spiral. It's not very usable as a everyday search because there's not enough peers and they can't index The Whole Internet, so people go away, the search has less peers, indexes less sites…
There is one use case where you add your favorite sites and get a truly personalized search, but again, one computer can't index the whole net.
Just to let you know, following our discussion from last week, I'v started writing a small utility to grab the FMA content from archive.org.
I plan to mirror at least a part of the FMA on open.audio using this :)

From freecycling to Fairphones: 24 ways to lead an anti-capitalist life in a capitalist world
@mlg @TheGibson "Marxists think we should be bossed by bureaucrats. Libertarians think we should be bossed by businessmen. Feminists don’t care which form bossing takes so long as the bosses are women. Clearly these ideology-mongers have serious differences over how to divvy up the spoils of power. Just as clearly, none of them have any objection to power as such and all of them want to keep us working. "
Is there anything like an #ActivityPub based #Wikipedia alternative? I think this would be a really cool project, and if it doesn't exist, it should be created. I would be happy to help write the concept, but most likely not the programming side.
If you are wondering why this is important, the gist of it is that Wikipedia is also a centralized platform, just as much as Twitter or Facebook. This causes various problems, like administrators having too much power and banning users they don't like. Articles are generally written from a capitalist/neoliberal perspective, while leftist viewpoints are censored.

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
