@vemvad for what reason :)
Think rebooting grassroots media and/or the #openweb would be a small step in the right direction.

Angela Davis vs the Liberal Reformers - Existential Comics
Big Tech is the malady. Decentralization is the antidote.
Decentralize, and the advertizing model breaks down. Celebrities turn into mere jerks with over-inflated opinions of themselves. Facebook can only profit if it has billions of users locked in to its walled garden. Without centralization, existential threats become paper tigers.

Thus has no function in posative social change #failbook #dotcons and #deathcult its a mess with no good outcome #XR

I love a bit of liberalism, but the current crop have drunk deeply from the #deathcult of neo-liberalism and post-modernism and are so infected with this that they are little better than plague zombies. Were do we go from here?
