The pirate bay, the most censored website in the world, started by kids, run by people with problems with alcohol, drugs and money, still is up after almost 2 decades. Parlor and gab etc have all the money around but no skills or mindset. Embarrassing.
The most ironic thing is that TPBs enemies include not just the US government but also many European and the Russian one. Compared to gab/parlor which is supported by the current president of the US and probably liked by the Russian one too.
Seems a lot of people wants to learn more about the pirate bay. Here's an older documentary, tpb afk.
When tpb got threatened we didn't whine about it. We made a thing of it. When a company called web sheriff (for real) threatened to sue and we found their fax number and faxed this. Like 500 copies. Old tech made them run out of ink for more important faxes.
I'll end with my favorite one, a company was upset about fonts being available, they sent this.
Which obviously led to the only sane reply, to send this back.
In all honesty, the reason we did TPB was to bring freedom and take back control from a centralised system. The reason that Gab et al will fail is because they're just whining bitches that have only one ideology: egotism. Sharing is caring y'all.

Jag vill gärna påminna lite om turerna kring FRA. En tråd.
FRA-lagen hade inte majoritet i riksdagen när den kuppades igenom. Det var 4 st allianspolitiker som var å det starkaste emot. De blev inkallade på hotfulla möten, där de t.ex. fick veta att de inte skulle få valbar plats på listorna vid nästa val.
En fick en semester till USA och vi har knappt hört från honom sen dess. De tre andra verkade passa på att förhandla lite i sina partier. Tjänster och gentjänster?

So now it's proven that capitalism didn't work under pressure. We got saved by governments funded by collective taxes. We see the capitalists asking for bailouts so they can fail again later.
Time for system change.
Instead of bailing out banks, we should get a citizen salary. Cheaper, more fair and will make the people have money enough to afford supporting local business' that will NOT get a bailout anyhow.
Now that gas prices are low, it's time to stop subsidising that. Raise taxes on fossil fuels.

I wish there was an equally intellectual discussion about AI as to that about gene modification in humans. Essentially it's going to end up being the same thing - someone decides the genes of the future with AI, and where's the discourse about who's got a say?
I'm fed up with the term AI as well. It's all an extension of the wishes of the creators of the "AI" - simply put, it's code that someone did for a certain purpose. The one controlling the code for the AI is controlling the future. Where's the democratic regulations for this?
The people that think that "new technologies" can remedy the problems with todays centralised technology stacks should wake up. It's not about the technology, it's about the control of the markets the technology is used in.
