So, there's this concept of "implicit feudalism" in online communities. Essentially, the vast majority of online communities - from old-school forums, to facebook groups, to large platforms like Twitter and Facebook themselves, even to fediverse instances - they're all run as dictatorships by default. It's built into the software - you'll have a top admin who has full, unconstrained power, they might delegate mods who have some limited powers, and anyone else has to listen to what these dictators and lords tell them. We talk about "federating" here in the fediverse, but each individual community - as far as I'm aware of - is a little dictatorship. A federation of dictatorships is not a free society, anymore than the UN, an international body composed of "liberal democracies" and authoritarian regimes is truly democratic. We need a way to start governing online communities through actual forms of democracy.

Concentration camps in China
I'm really glad that there are so many leaks coming out of Xinjiang right now. People are risking their lives to get this information out, and I don't think China's Communist Party has ever faced leaks of classified documents of this magnitude before. Fuck fascism
@darius What's up, I'm looking for a new mastodon instance (I don't know/trust the admin here). Does friend camp take applicants? :)
