The french government issues 500 takedown notices to the internet archive, claiming that large portions of the archive (which are otherwise perfectly legal) are "terrorist content" including Project Gutenberg, the Prelinger Archive, the Grateful dead collection, and some CSPAN archive.

Pessimism about the internet
It just feels like Nothing is safe and all of the things that have allowed the way of life to which we have all grown accustomed to flourish are under attack.
And even if we can fix this, it's wrecked my trust in the platforms and in the longevity of the "open" part of "open internet"
I don't see a way forward that isn't also a path underground.
