You are correct in the Fediverse’s stance against Big Tech. The most important aspect of the global Fediverse is that it is for everyone, and it is about freedom. This includes the freedom to spin up instances where there is no censorship at all. Places where everything goes. But the same freedom applies to instances that set moderation rules for participation. People accept them when they join. They may include fending off sexual explicit material, or displaying of violence and gore. Or they can restrict to specific topics.
You could call that censorship, but it really is not. It is a mutual agreement by those that join the instance. Just like on TV there is an agreement to not show an adult move at 6pm, right after the children’s cartoons.
As for society… it saddens me how we go against each other. There’s probably Big Tech influence at play here too, reinforcing negative emotions on both sides (see e.g. The Social Dilemma). But for this forum this is irrelevant. Here we talk about evolving the technology to create something of beauty.
I am not American but hope you all will be able to find more bipartisan ground, and harmony together. But further discussion about this topic should be reserved for better places on the web. Not here. Let’s just say that the Fediverse is for all cultures. And if we can manage that, we can take that into account.
