In my opinion Maidsafe & SAFE Network supporters are doing ourselves a disservice by not capitalizing on the current news and media on the topics of conservative and right wing media censorship.
We are all aware about Twitter, Apple, YouTube, Google and many many more delisting, shadow-banning, blocking and deleting the likes of Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes, Prager University, #Walkaway creator Brandon Straka, Milo Yiannopoulos, Lauren Southern, Chick’s on the Right, PewDiePie, Jerome Corsi, Mike Cernovich, Carl Benjamin AKA Sargon, Paul J Watson, on and on the list goes. We are all abundantly aware.
So then, why no press, no media, no marketing, and no discussion on these topics? I know there has been a couple topics posted but it is really a drop in the ocean.
I know why: The feel I get from this community is that it is a fairly left of center leaning community. And from a company perspective I can understand and would even support Maidsafe not rolling out the press releases on these matters because it could alienate the company, it’s risky.
But that does not mean there are not other solutions and certainly does not mean the community at large should not be discussing these topics internally and also with other communities on the web and saying “hey, I know you feel strongly about X, did you know this is a lot harder to do, silencing people, on SAFE network?”
In fact we should be doing EXACTLY this, we should be discussing, posting, chatting and opening this technology up to EVERYONE but especially we should be smarter and more strategic, we should capitalize on such topics. Every new person introduced to Maidsafe and the SAFE network is one person more than we had earlier, and THAT is what builds the network. It us users, real living flesh and blood biological NODES, that is the life blood of our network and that is what will determine our success or failure. Regardless of politics.
I will shortly post in r/The_Donald on reddit as a test, I have posted there may times before and I have once posted there about Maidsafe, it will be a good test to see if my theory works. I will link to some SAFE content. It would be good but not necessary if someone that monitors traffic from Maidsafe can let us know if there is a spike in traffic from Reddit.
