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 $$$.
