There are other messaging apps if you just want to small group chats like Signal or Session.
When is enough, Enough?

It would also require more secure platforms like Signal or Session or Status.
Telegram Ad Platform

I've been wondering the same thing for a while. The closest iteration of this I've come across so far is Session (https://getsession.org)
It routes messages through an Onion/TOR-like network of nodes that others volunteer to run. In return for running those nodes, they generate the Oxen cryptocurrency, similar to how mining Bitcoin works.
This way, it's not fully centralized like WhatsApp/Telegram/etc, but also solves the issues of devices directly communicating, like what happens when the app isn't running on the phone.4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Nov 2021

The problems with the Red Left Anarchists: A Post-Left Anarchist/Transcendentalist critique

Pleroma and tox.chat is not hard to use, setting up a riseupVPN is easy as well. I mean, u can create an account on the kolektiva.social if u wanna dip ur toes in the water, or fedi.absturztau.be you will need to use ur riseup email or protonmail though.2 projects | reddit.com/r/DebateAnarchism | 7 Oct 2021
The fedi is steadily growing, every centralised platform has already been replaced: Twitter/Facebook with Pleroma, YouTube with Peertube, Spotify with Whalefunk etc. It's all based on federationism/free-association, also you can purge all of your data permanently and the platforms are VPN friendly. There is also Element.io or tox.chat which are Discord spin-offs that have higher encryption standards than Telegram or Signal; tox.chat is a bit more begginer friendly whereas Element/Matrix requires more experience with cryptography. I am starting my own instance/server- this does require some basic knowledge in coding and using Linux. There is FOSS (free & open sourced software) which doesnt necessarily require Linux OS- like, you can install GIMP on Windows or Apple as well to replace Photoshop if you wanna design posters without having to pay $$$.
