@philosopher What a great video! I'm from South America, so I really appreciate your mentioning Operation Condor (US intervention on our governments). I think big tech shouldn't be in the position to make such huge decisions in the first place. That's why I can't avoid sharing this talk on the experience of the Fediverse with content moderation around Gab.

"But for Indigenous peoples it is clear: the less you know about something, the less value it has to you, and the easier it is to destroy. And by easy, I mean: guiltlessly, remorselessly, foolishly, even righteously. And this is exactly what you are doing to us as Indigenous peoples, to our rainforest territories, and ultimately to our planet’s climate."

The book "Lies my Teacher Told Me" radicalized me at a young age. When I learned what Christopher Columbus did to the Taíno people I could never be proud of this "heritage." You can read Columbus' journal and peer inside his thoughts. He goes from how beautiful the Taíno are to how many soldiers would be needed to enslave them. (2/3)
Happy Indigenous Peoples' day!
From the White House statement today:
"These extremists seek to replace discussion of his vast contributions with talk of failings, his discoveries with atrocities, and his achievements with transgressions. Rather than learn from our history, this radical ideology and its adherents seek to revise it, deprive it of any splendor, and mark it as inherently sinister. They seek to squash any dissent from their orthodoxy."
