    I think what we need is governments that don’t kill someone over something he says first.

      There will always be people in power who use that power to stay in power, its the human condition. The best thing we can do is build systems to help people have free expression that can’t be censored.

        How would that stop this specific situation at all? The guy wasn’t censored from tweeting, he’s sentenced to death because he tweeted.

          We get to talk about it, we are aware of it, we can work together as a community to appeal the government, apply sanctions, etc.

          This man is being punished for speech, ensuring speech is available to everyone is the least we can do going forward.

            And of course that’s important, but your first comment seemed to imply that uncensored internet would have prevented this

              “Sad this guy is being murdered, but what we really should be talking about is the cause I’m interested in.”

                  Let me try and understand you, because jet says its good to have platforms/tools that allow for free anonymous expression like Lemmy/Mastodon/VPN/TOR/Zeronet/etc… this somehow is an attack against the mods on Lemmy?

                    No, I’m correcting their implication that the fediverse is some free speech absolutist haven.

                    And anyone foolish enough to think the governments of the world aren’t watching, and can’t find you, will find out that they are very wrong.
