This same sort of extreme impingement on your control over something that you rely on, that you think of as yours, is why some in the Free Software movement are dead set against Software as a Service— how do you remove a kill-switch from the cloud?

Cooperative ownership / democratic control, data backups, and open source free/libre software for the whole stack - - are our answer to that.

Friends, an easy step toward democratization of the economy is moving your money to a credit union. So let's say July 14th is Fediverse Move your Money Day!

In Japan this has been an important part of the fossil fuels divestment campaign by 350.org. When you choose a credit union, ask them about their investments (you'll probably be the first one to ask).
