What is Free Open Source Software (FOSS)?
The first step to avoiding censorship and surveillance is to stop using stuff that is made by those who want to spy on you, deplatform you, and shut down your free speech. This means we need to use Free Open Source Software (foss).
Foss software is community developed, usually by volunteers, and the code is open, available, transparent, and can be contributed to and modified or forked by anyone. There are a few different open source software licenses that all have their own nuanced takes on this idea, but generally this is what foss is.
The Free in foss is not free as in no cost so you bummy mofo’s don’t have to pay. It is free as in eff these dicks trying to shut down my free speech, I am going to use something they can’t shutdown, no matter how bad they want to, because eff them, that’s why. Freedom like Braveheart, get it?
A fork is where someone takes an existing foss project’s code base and begins customizing it to their needs. Sometimes these forks become community driven projects in their own right. For example, both the Brave and Google Chrome web browsers are forks of the Chromium foss web browser.
Now that we know there’s an alternative, what can we do with it?
In this series of posts, I am going to cover how to use a wide range of foss apps to:
- regain your privacy
- regain your anonymity
- view any kind of content you wish for free
- browse the dark web
- host your own video content
- live stream on your own platform
- host your own social media platform
- host your own cloud data storage
- host your own podcast 2.0
- host your own BTCPay server to monetize your content with Bitcoin
- use Bitcoin & Lightning Network, and other crypto to transact freely and without financial deplatforming
- host a censorship-resistant Zeronet site
- use alternative web protocols like Gopher, Gemini, Freenet, Tor, & I2P
The technology already exists to liberate ourselves from the dystopia by opting out of their systems of control. There is far too much censorship and attacks on freedom of speech and expression taking place for me to sit idly by and not share the knowledge I have for sidestepping it.
This blog will still include other content about the world around us and the truth of Jesus Christ in opposition to the devil’s lies, but right now I feel like Christ is leading me to share the knowledge so that other people who love truth can take advantage of the technology we have to resist the NWO.
I hope these posts will help anyone who finds them to reclaim their freedom and dignity in a corrupt world which seems like it sinks to a newer low, every single day.
May God bless you and your family.
