PS. While we’re at it, let’s entrust all our freedom of speech to Google also.
@aral Well, nobody (including google) is obliged to host other people's opinions on their infrastructure. That's why we are using Mastodon :P
@zalandocalrissian Exactly. Now think about how much of the population depends on Google and Facebook and <insert every other surveillance capitalist here> and you’ve just summarised why human rights and democracy are fucked unless we move beyond surveillance capitalism.
@aral uhm... let’s not?!
@aral freedom of speech neither requires anyone to distribute your opinion, nor to hear it. It simply states you may not be punished for expressing it.
@ng0 There’s literally a link to the page in the original toot. I hadn’t even realised until you just pointed it out. I’m sorry I cropped out part of their excuse.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
