This is happening in online spaces generally, as "cancel culture" becomes more widespread. Fortunately it seems to be driving people into smaller but better-moderated (or even decentralized) spaces.

I don't currently buy crypto, but I want to. Is there something like Stockpile.com for cryptocurrency? by onemananswerfactory in cryptocurrency

I'm pretty sure both Coinbase and Uphold let you schedule purchases of crypto.

Seeking technical advice on several router / wi-fi / Free-NAS / co-op ideas. by JasonCarswell in DIY

Offering freely accessible wifi might expose you to legal concerns if someone used it to harm someone or attract legal attention to your ISP account. Something to consider.

The opponents of liberty are sowing disinformation across all social media to promote their agendas and justify their power mongering. Is there a moral case for libertarians to do the same? by sawboss in Libertarianism

[–]friend 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Sowing disinformation is building your support on rotten ground. Like many other destructive strategies, it works best in the short term, and actually backfires long term. Tyrants who plan to eventually go public with their domination don't worry whether their supporters will eventually understand the truth, because by then it will be too late.

The cause of liberty doesn't have this luxury, but since our rulers gain consent by lying, we have a powerful and persuasive message for people who we help to see things clearly. And once someone sees the world as it actually is, they can't unsee it.

It's Kayode Ewumi. The meme is called "Roll Safe".

IPFS uploads by Gangster in IdeasForSaidIt

If you use spee.ch as your image host your content will be served over IPFS, and the metadata will be hosted on the LBRY blockchain.

Do you archive your favourite webpages? by Vulphere in AskSaidIt

[–]friend 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I archive videos, images, and text from news stories that I suspect will be changed or removed later. I would run a self hosted archive site like archivebox or wallabag if I took archiving more seriously.

VA: Fatal dog experiments moving ahead despite criticism from Congress, veterans groups by dcjogger in politics

[–]friend 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The public objection to lethal testing on dogs specifically seems ethically inconsistent. If killing pigs for food is ethical, so is experimental surgery on dogs, assuming they are treated humanely. The article tries to frame this as an ethics issue, but it seems more like a puplic relations problem to me.

Why are SJWs so Physically Unattractive? by useless_aether in whatever

[–]friend 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Identity politics is an ideology of envy; it makes sense that such an ideology would hold a strong appeal for unattractive women. They seek to elevate their status by being publicly seen as allies or victims.
This is also why SJW ideology is over-represented publicly: it's by necessity a public performance.

I already use RedReader for Reddit, so the fact that this is ported to SaidIt is a real delight. Thanks for your work and for this useful information.

The Norwegian system vs The US system by magnora7 in politics

Are you saying that the private solutions that we have today, that are working today, can't possibly work?

[–]friend 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm suggesting that in pure capitalism, companies would fill the roles that government mostly fills today. We already have private courts (called arbitrators), private security (mall cops, bouncers, security guards, etc), private package delivery (FedEx, UPS, DHL), private health care, private schools. The difference between a private company and the government is that private companies aren't allowed to use force to get what they want, they have to follow the same rules as people do -- no stealing, no attacking people. If a company comes to you and says, "give me 30% of your income or my thugs will kidnap you" you can tell them to pound sand, and you can defend yourself against their thugs.

"Unfettered" capitalism would be 0% tax and no regulations, private courts, private everything that used to be government's job.

SaidIt is an alternative to Reddit, as we all know. What other major sites have alternatives that might not be well known? by Icalasari in AskSaidIt

[–]friend 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

My focus besides just having another option, is censorship-resistance. These are still third parties, and their website could be taken down etc. But they seem to respect privacy and deserve trust:

Youtube alternatives:

d.tube - runs on top of steemit blockchain, content served over IPFS, storage paid for by part of steem rewards from upvotes
BitChute - Uses webtorrent to serve video content

Gmail alternatives

Protonmail - serious about privacy, integrated PGP is nice
Fastmail - serious about privacy, very flexible options if you own your own domain name

Chat programs

Keybase - not just secure chat, but file sharing, group chat, and lots more. Great user experience with PGP under the hood.
