<p>This also expands to my thinking (and that of others I've engaged with) that tech (by itself) will not get us free. It is definitely just a tool. But tools, in this landscape, when wielded by the wrong person who can also easily convince others to do things that fuel/fund/support bad things, need to be used ALWAYS in favor of the people and not institutions that exist to extract from us.</p>

This isn't to say I'm against anarchy. I 100% believe that the state, as it exists, and the facilities we currently champion as a means of molding the state to get to (or return to? for who?) a state treats everyone well do not work in any case presented, and that the most ideal solution is the complete dissolution of it. But doing that by pushing in a system that puts the same core ethos (finance and economics driving people versus the tangible needs of all living people) is not one that'll do any meaningful change.
