On my blog, somebody suggested Wiby.
“… the web became saturated with commercial pages that overcrowded everything else. All the personalized websites are hidden among a pile of commercial pages. Google isn't great at finding them, its focus is on finding answers to technical questions, and it works well … many pages today are created using bloated scripts that … mask the lack of content available on them … the blandness of today's web.”

what exactly do you think you're saying when you make a guillotine joke? or say that a reactionary gets the wall? or advocate punching Nazis? political violence is authority, plain and simple. All political theory is about how violence- and therefore, authority- is distributed. the point of a revolution is not to eliminate authority, which we've already established is impossible, but rather to use it to force a more just world into existence.

and this brings us to the most famous quote of On Authority:

"A revolution is certainly the most authoritarian thing there is; it is the act whereby one part of the population imposes its will upon the other part by means of rifles, bayonets and cannon — authoritarian means, if such there be at all; and if the victorious party does not want to have fought in vain, it must maintain this rule by means of the terror which its arms inspire in the reactionists."

I do think the main blockers to achieving a software freedom future are:

1) Apple/Google's duopoly over our phones. Phones provide all the computing many, but not all, people need.
2) The sheer dominance of DRM in, and beyond, our entertainment. DRM is fundamentally based on the ideology of proprietary software.

Without achieving a significant foothold in the smartphone & entertainment markets, I can't see our movement being anything but niche.

Beyond that, it's just spreading our ideology...

intrigued by this recently announced #coop alternative to patreon! comradery.co

"Comradery is NOT intended for any business or nonprofit that is not cooperatively owned. Comradery is NOT for anyone employed by, or raising money for law enforcement agencies of any kind. This is our ‘No Bosses, No Cops’ rule."

One of my favourite things to challenge when talking politics with people is the idea that we live in a democratic society. Sure we vote occasionally, but do you vote for your landlord? Your boss? The cops on your block? These are the people that hold power over you.
