While I feel that we should try to support "ethical" software and services, it's important to remember what Sonic the Hedgehog said:
"There is no ethical consumption under Capitalism."
No matter how "ethical" a company tries to be, most of them still operate as companies. Even if all of them became CoOps, there would still be Capital somewhere in the supply chain.
Use whatever software works for you and fight for your rights when you can.
I am so sick of #advertising that I want to throw up. 🤮 I'm sorry but it's a terrible business model. You're literally selling people's attention to companies that want them to buy shit they don't need. I disagree with anyone who says that ads can be acceptable or ethical. It's one thing to tell people about a cool product or service but it's another to manufacture needs and shove them down people's throats. #anticapitalism #ethicaltechnologies #socialism
Good morning Fediverse! I've recently switched from #Chromium to #Firefox due to the impending bullshit with disabling ad blockers. Honestly I'm not Firefox's biggest fan because they take money from Surveillance Capitalists but it was easy to disable the #antifeatures in it. It's a shame that #GnomeWeb doesn't have #WebRTC support yet, otherwise I wouldn't need Firefox. #DeleteGoogle #SurveillanceCapitalism #AntiCapitalism #Leftism #Technology #Infotech #Infosec #IT #Socialism #Anarchism
Because we humans have a tendency to intend to do good but sometimes do way more harm than good, I encourage anyone who knows I'm doing harm to tell me, along with why what I'm doing is bad. We all change our opinions to try to be better people. Some are better about this than others though which is why I invite others to challenge my ideas if there is a flaw. No one is perfect but I believe we can all be better together. #leftism #anticapitalism #antifacism #socialism #anarchism
