So some people are currently discovering that they live in a capitalist system. Great! So what's next? Moving to will surely not abolish the circumstances that made you moving there. Sorry to say. 🤷‍♂️

@EduardItrich I think people are aware that they won't bring capitalism to its knees by switching from twitter to Mastodon. But what's wrong about saying "I don't want to participate in a rich lunatic's hobby horse" and moving to a different platform? Isn't this the "consumer choice" thing that capitalists value so much?

@gorgrederhai Don't get me wrong. I'm more than happy to see people joining the Fediverse - so did I a couple of months ago. However, this won't change that individuals can buy and own (digital) infrastructure. Some threads on the s/Birdsite/Musksite/ praise Mastodon as the solution for this problem. The problem is capitalism and Mastodon is not fixing this. That's all.
