I thought I found an instance of mastodon where people actually interacted with me (not this one, I've received almost no interaction here) and where I felt safe. It was taken down by authorities. Forced to find another it was taken down by its own creators due to new laws which made it vulnerable. There is no social media where I feel safe and where I receive interaction from its users.

That's what authority wants: a world where we feel vulnerable and isolated.

This is why we need revolution!

... and where they have a back door into our lives.

This is a combined effort by corporate "social media" and law enforcement, the dumb hammer of capitalism.

This is why we NEED open sourced federation that resides distributed across the world in a way that capitalism CAN'T shut it down.

@bas If by vulnerable you mean stripped of power and autonomy - then yes. Platforms and agencies work to expand control, by limiting your own agency (limit platform alternatives, limit on-platform options) and manipulating your psyche (increase engagement, click on advertisement etc.)

If by isolated you mean the kind of individualism that discourages sociality that is not immediately beneficial to authority - then yes. It's a battle just to promote free social goods like parks/libraries
