America is just the country that shows how all the written guarantees in the world for freedom are no protection against tyranny and oppression of the worst kind. There the politician has come to be looked upon as the very scum of society.

Few respected security people have been more mistaken. When the error is so large it's inevitable to wonder about motives. social.coop/media/1bqsZKav665W

Big name leftist accounts refusing to leave the unjust system that enriched them are a pretty good metaphor for the limits of people embracing socialism when capitalism has made them rich.

I have a tough time with Mastodon. I'm going to use it. But every time I login all I see is competitive snark about Twitter.

This makes Mastodon feel like Left Gab to me.

Mastodon is not "eventually going to beat Twitter." I don't even understand why that is what's on so many people's minds. The reason to use Mastodon, I would think, is to be in a place you can think, interact, organize, and exist with less bullshit.

My least favorite part about new folks logging in is the DM panic.

โ€œOh no, my DMs are unencrypted and can be read by the instance moderators and admins.โ€

โ€œ... just like every other social platform youโ€™ve ever used, plus most email platforms.โ€

โ€œWell, yeah, but on those other platforms the admins are a team of underpaid entry level employees at a faceless company, not a single person or small group of individuals thatโ€™s I can get to knowโ€

โ€œ...right.โ€
