I can't believe it has come to this.

If you are using your FOSS projects to limit choice and drive your political agenda, you are no more an agent of freedom than self indulgent corporations who use software to drive their commercial agendas. For instance, you are no different than Microsoft.

The freedom in free software isn't freedom to be told what to do, what to believe, what opinions to hold, and who to talk to.

Let the Fediverse be free and open to everyone.

No freedom for nazis or nazi collaborators.

It's not "just as bad", because it's driven by a need to protect people, not out of a desire to make more money. Entirely different.


@lesbianhacker @mollym I don’t think it’s a good idea to mix these problems. Nazis have to be dealt with, but not by limiting the freedom of the tools we all use. The tools should allow the user to be in control. Not the other way around.

As I said. No freedom for nazis. This requires that we limit the freedom of the tools we use so that the people slusing the tools are less likely to be nazis.

You can't deal with the nazi problem without limiting freedom. Whether it's the freedom of speech or the freedom to be alive.
