We so need to reverse the trend towards centralized services - in a federated service like @Mastodon the US or Israeli govt can force instances under their jurisdiction to not connect to instances with content they disagree with, but that's about it.

You still have to find a legal jurisdiction that cares enough about free speech by non-citizens but at least that means hundreds of choices instead of just one.
