We can only be safe from the surveillance state if we have control over the hardware we buy, and the freedom to modify it.
@amydentata also surveillance, surveillance extortion rackets, and surveillance espionage targeted at gathering kompromat on all future possible politicians
@amydentata but that only applies if we can afford to buy hardware that respects our right to modify it. Many cant. I really want to see more efforts to modifty existing devices, theres LineageOS but not anything organized for hardware.
