Decentralisation means that Session has no central point of failure — but it also means:

- Censorship resistance 🚫🤐🚫
- Surveillance blocking 🚫🕵️🚫
- We can't collect your data, because we never had it in the first place 🚫✍️🚫

The most powerful social movements are decentralised. Their success does not rely on any one person.

This is the ethos built into the DNA of Session.

It cannot be shut off.

It cannot be controlled.

It cannot be stopped.

violence, current events 

It is my absolute belief that needs to take an active role in keeping fascists and white supremacists out of the community, and just generally unwelcome and not tolerated in any public arena.

Encryption has a PR problem — and it's no accident.

Around the world, politicians and law enforcement agencies are trying to make encryption a dirty word.

But the truth is, without E2EE, our fundamental right to privacy would be taken away.

NEW: We obtained an internal police doc about driverless car programs that says they are "recording their surroundings continuously," footage is available to cops, and that it's been used for investigations. Driverless cars are persistent moving spy cams

Messages like the image attached signal how crooked the system is and how there's people trying to make business out of this:

> get highly trained employees paying them half of the market price!!

I know the whole sh*t is just spam, that's why I have no sympathy for the _recruiter_, since is probably an automated persona, if not, just a racist more. Even less for the "company", KitSF - they have a .com website, but is also spam.
