If folks think that the world, on whole, is not an oppressive place with pervasive #inequity, they need to broaden their perspectives.

As #technology becomes key for individuals and communities to thrive, #FLOSS plays a critical role in ensuring their freedoms are respected and protected in those efforts. And that's why we need to ensure we're listening to those with the least power, to help build tools that work for everyone.

@lightweight @downey I like this quote: "I feel strongly that, no matter the original intentions, incentives ultimately determine behaviour."

That is how I like to think about things.

@lightweight Very well thought out. I will be referring to that later, I'm sure.
