Ein paar Beispiele gefällig?
Verschlüsselung stärken - Tor verbieten
Personalmangel bei Polizei ignorieren - Polizeigesetze verschärfen
Dieselskandal ignorieren - Grenzwerte hochsetzen
Digitalsteuer ablehnen - Verantwortung an Plattformen abschieben -> Uploadfilter
Grundrechte für die Sicherheit opfern - Nazis in Polizei und Militär ignorieren

UND IHR BESCHWERT EUCH, WENN EINE KLIMAAKTIVISTIN NEN PLASTIKLÖFFEL NUTZT?!? #fridaysforfuture

Diese Politiker, die jetzt verzweifelt nach Inkonsistenzen bei #frodayforfuture suchen, dass die Kinder Müll machen oder bei McDoof essen, sollten sich echt in Grund und Boden schämen. Denn sie sind es, die ohne jede Scham eine politische Inkonsistenz nach der anderen generieren.

There's an obvious parallel with the leftist idea of ownership of the means of production. What is the means of production in the digital era? Its the computers, the networks, the devices and the software that runs on them.

Highly interesting.

Tldr: motive attribution asymmetry leads to contempt which is stoked and exploited for personal profit.

Privacy is the power to selectively reveal oneself to the world.

So Ihr Lieben, weil Ihr gerade so schön in Schwung seid wegen #Artikel13: wenn Ihr nicht wollt, dass der #Bundesrat nächste Woche das #Darknet #verbietet, dann müsst Ihr JETZT die Abgeordneten bzw Parteien in Euren Landesregierungen anrufen. Mail geht auch bundesrat.de/SharedDocs/TO/975

Step-free access, everywhere, by default.
Pedestrians and cyclists given actual priority over cars and other big metal boxes at every point. Free trains for everyone.

Food delivery that works kindof like milk delivery: re-useable glass containers with recyclable foil lids.

Better access to 3D printing of medical gear like splints.

Oh great. Nice going, Santa Cruz City Schools.

Security cameras that used to be pointed at exterior threats are now going to be pointed at students (even young ones). Did you people not read #LittleBrother? Who are you here to serve, anyway??
