Nazi leader Herman Goring's philosophy would work well even now:

“.. the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country”.

Web developers: take a moment to turn off javascript on your websites. If it can't be used at all--especially if the user is confronted with a blank screen--without js support, fix it. It's a bad website. #xp

The plugin has a github at github.com/JohnXLivingston/pee

It was announced on the PeerTube blog back in November at joinpeertube.org/news#live-plu

The chat doesn't require an account, you just pick a nickname and start chatting.

We don't need to passively accept it when conceited billionaires buy up social media.

We can create and use our own social media instead:

growyourown.services/grow-your

There are thousands of community-owned servers on the Fediverse with millions of registered users.

We can take back ownership of our online social lives, if we choose to.

Does anyone have any insight into what the cheapest way to host a Pleroma instance with about 1000 users (but no more) would be?

I'm trying to set one up for my school, I'm beyond the "arguing with administration" phase and onto the deploying phase.

Nuances: my school isn't letting us put hardware on the wifi, so it has to be hosted at someone's house or in the cloud. I have no idea what kind of system requirements I'll need, that's my biggest question. Boosts appreciated :boost_requested: ❤️
