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 $$$.

Before I continue, the fact that Matrix and XMPP are protocols and not applications makes it a bit silly to compare to Signal and other messengers from a user perspective. Thus, while selling "Matrix" makes sense our niche r/linuxmasterrace group, that's confusing to the general public. It makes more sense to compare e.g. Element to those.

Meh, if you lookup "Matrix" then it might be, but you can just point "normal users" to a client like https://element.io and suddenly all the complexity is taken away.

Not many people know but there is a pretty great piece of software called element: (https://element.io/). It’s open source, federated, and best of all you can self host it. You could use the matrix.org instance or any other server that hosts it if you don’t want to host it yourself. It’s really popular in the open source community.
