Free software means the tool belongs to the user. You can oppose whatever you want. But if you build a tool you don't get to decide who gets to use it.
@mister_monster @firstname.lastname@example.org @astheroth @fdroidorg I will not make tools that help and promote hatred, simple as that. I will either do what I can to prevent that use, or I will not make them at all. I have absolutely zero interest in any ideology that says I must do so.
And no, that is not fascist. That is what any decent human being would do. Opposing hatred is not itself hatred, and suggesting it is is simply absurd.
You can't equate your own ideology with *the* moral argument. "That is what any decent person would do." Tossing a blanket statement of "hatred" on top of anything you disagree with and then taking a morally superior stance is not morally superior or intellectually honest.
If you care for a world with net positive freedom, then giving a fascist the freedom to remove other's freedom is not the solution.
To maximize freedom in the world we must oppose whom want to crush it: Fascists.
@tootapp Indeed. Pay those obviously disingenuous "censoring fascism is the real fascism" tossers no mind.
It's such a trite pile of nonsense that there's no real reason to engage with it at all.
No-one who is not in fact a fascist apologist would be so absurdly ignorant as to seriously propose that it is fascist to prevent fascists from using your tool.
They are speaking against their own better judgment, as poor as that judgment is.
