It is ironic how humankind’s struggle with oppression has come full circle, to the point where, in order to truly speak, you must discipline yourself to be silent on the very platforms which would seem to facilitate free speech, but in fact do not.
When global public forums such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube, together with the digital services which power them, become the tool with which true free speech is suppressed, silence now becomes the only way to protest — silence on their platforms, that is.
We must boycott them all. That is the only way to get them to hear. And while we boycott them, we must build alternative systems – websites, apps, and digital services which do not rely on Big Tech.
The struggle for liberty and free speech is simply a choice of the people.
