#Fedi: Please find me a bank in the US that is ethical. 

At the very least, find me a bank that does not invest in private prisons, #fossilFuels, or other right-wing politics. All client apps must be #FOSS & distributed outside of walled gardens like #Playstore. The bank must not block Tor or track users IP addresses/locations over the long term. It must not outsource any processing of customer data (e.g. no #Cloudflare). It must not offer car loans to city dwellers (#fuckCars). #askFedi (1/3)

Roe vs. Wade, data brokering (abortion, rape, alzheimer’s) 

The names of #rape victims are for sale in the US (7.9¢ per name). Also more on #abortion data being sold (#roeVwade overturn will add value to that data). Data on who has alzheimer’s or dementia is also up for sale to swindlers who see them as easy targets: slate.com/technology/2022/06/h

@aral @gabek I propose we call it “Pawnverse” because #Facebook has created a universe of pawns. And in fact #Pawnverse could encapsulate all such walled gardens where the so-called “users” are actually /used by/ the service. Thus #Twitter, #Youtube, #Instagram, & all similar garbage can be considered part of Pawnverse.

#Facebook is dodging¹ questions about surveillance of users who sought an #abortion. Yikes! If #roeVwade is overturned FB’s data will be incriminating (just as FB tracks who is gay in a world where homosexuality is still punished in ~7 or so countries [death penalty in 2 of them]) 1. fence.firesidegrillandbar.com/

The NRA buys off Congress. No action on guns.

The oil industry buys off Congress. No action on climate.

Insurance companies buy off Congress. No action on health care.

Pharma buys off Congress. No action on drug prices.

Money in politics is the root of our dysfunction.

Strengthening digital infrastructure: A policy agenda for FOSS

"A @EU_Commission sponsored report found that in 2018, #EU companies invested roughly €1 billion into #FOSS creation, which resulted in up to a €95 billion benefit for FOSS users in the EU. Similar estimates for the #USA investment in FOSS were $33 billion in 2019. However, despite these attempts we have only scratched the surface of truly understanding the value FOSS provides to the economy and modern life"

I wonder how many users use the #GPG “encrypt-to” config option to encrypt all msgs to self so they have a readable copy of what was sent. And of those users how many forget they have that setting when they send a msg anonymously, not realizing the recipient can just run pgpdump to #doxx them.
