Capitalism: Class position on anonymity
  • Add in anonymity, and it's just disgusting. When you don't even put your real name on your garbage (or the garbage you share or like), it really doesn't help.

    I'm actually one of those people who thinks that anonymity is overrated. Some people confuse privacy and anonymity and think they go hand in hand, and that protecting privacy means that you need to protect anonymity. I think that's wrong. Anonymity is important if you're a whistle-blower, but if you cannot prove your identity, your crazy rant on some social-media platform shouldn't be visible, and you shouldn't be able to share it or like it.

    Said by Linus Torvalds.

    So, what he so hates? As it is actually retranslation of ruling class position on the subject. Class hates that someone can use knowledge without being thrown out or shut down. And real name, work position and phone can help here a lot, this is why we see so fast pace of laws and regulations. As rotten system capitalism love his ineffective hierarchies and will protect them for all costs.

    If you so don't like hate speech - you need to fight capitalism as it is cause of it.

    Austria’s right-wing government plans to force large social and traditional media to verify their users’ identity so that individuals can be tracked down if they post hate speech online anonymously, it said on Wednesday.

    The measure, part of a bill that has yet to be submitted to parliament, will apply only to larger platforms, defined as those with have more than 100,000 users or €500,000 in revenue in Austria, as well as traditional media receiving a certain amount in government subsidies.

    One after another. So it is reason why we see Linux and small unknown boy becoming famous, ruling class knows whom to trust.
