Think I Love Patreon

Now its not perfect.
Its on compromised clearnet.
It might be improved by ideas like those on the defunct flattr.com platform

But it turns out that patrons in a subscription membership platform don’t have to be like yester day’s dirty patron sponsors under a spoils system. Can’t say I favor the trinket selling. But an ad free platform with direct relations between creatives and those who benefit from works is awesome and honest! As long as no bs corrupting sponsors or ads are ever added, no need for bribery.

I think what you see with it is a bottom up empowering speech system as opposed to the top down supplyside oppressor speech system.
If the medium is the message top down supply side is a lie. These top down systems are lie. The top is a lie.
