" #P2P will save us if Net Neutra-"
NO. Many ISPs already block p2p protocol traffic and #Tor . Blockchain probably won't save you. If you have the money and resources, establish your own ISP, preferably a #coop. Otherwise, CALL CONGRESS. They might be able to invoke the Congressional Review Act.
No thank you, celebrities
If, when you say, we should treat celebrities like everyone else, you mean we redistribute their wealth, hold them accountable for their actions AND inactions, and expect they use their platform to amplify oppressed voices until we dismantle celebrity culture entirely? Then yes, I’m with you.
But if you mean give them tabula rasa when their behavior, including their inaction, is a matter of public record, and treat them as if there is no massive power differential? No.
