Human civilization needs media to function. It needs openmedia to flourish. In the world full of #deathcult we need media to save nature from widespread destruction/disruption. Of course if you are a eco fascist culling the human race is a option though media has a roll in that. So to summarize the is no escape from media. The #openweb give you the power to choose open or closed.
The mainstream is largely a shadow of the #deathcult How Yuval Noah Harari became the pet ideologist of the liberal elites - U.S. News - Haaretz.com
Was listening to #mainstreammedia this morning and every show was looking at the failings of the last 40 years. But what was not obvious or addressed was that all the conversation were with in a narrow mainstream understanding. In each crisis the were large non mainstream voices saying don't do this, they had no voice still in today's mainstream echo chambers.
Its hard for people to see/understand the difference between personal and social conversations as the #deathcult has banished understanding of the social. Its a basic problem we face.

I'm guessing federation might make #mastodon a bit unreliable for video, if your own node is low powered, and your content gets widely shared.
