This is because I understand some things that many people do not, or do not want to.

Hi @fsf as a member of the Free Software Foundation I'd like to hear your reply on @aral post found here: https://ar.al/2019/01/11/i-was-wrong-about-google-and-facebook-theres-nothing-wrong-with-them-so-say-we-all/
Would you please be so kind to respond to this no only here but also on your own website as this merits a well-written article in my opinion. Thank you!
Renewed my @fsf membership. Please consider supporting them, because a free society needs free software.
