Governments are not going to save you from corporations.

Corporations are not going to liberate you from government interference.

I am liking LineageOS but the whole custom ROM scene is so fragmented.

"Let's develop this OS on hundreds of different phones that become obsolete in 2 years, and then start all over again"

"For decentralized applications to reach their full potential, there needs to be much more collective strategizing, coalition building, and community organizing – not just around the particular technologies, but around the overarching mission and values of the movement towards decentralization.
