Please remember that LSC is a SAFE SPACE for socialist discussion.
LSC is run by and for communists and anarchists. We welcome socialist/anti-capitalist news, memes, links, and discussion. This subreddit is not the place to debate socialism. We allow good-faith questions and education but are not a 101 sub; please take 101-style questions elsewhere.
This subreddit is a safe space; we have a zero-tolerance policy for bigotry. We also automatically filter out posts containing certain words and phrases that some users may find offensive. Please respect the safe space, and don't try to slip banned words or phrases past the filter.
They are pushing for laws that force companies to secure personal data, but they should not have the data to begin with. This is a way for Google and Facebook to make things harder for their competition, while creating a false image of being pro privacy. The politicians will pass these laws, mainstream consumers will feel safer, but it will be business as usual for big tech. Legislation does nothing to help us. We have to make the changes by voting with our dollars and BAT.
