We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.

We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.

I can agree with this point.

I'd add three: if you fight nation states you're probably going to lose in the long run, cause they have more resources than you do.

The idea of a meshnet that can withstand a concerted assult by, say, the NSA is a fantasy. I'm not aware of any meshnet that would not be vulnerable to a well funded and very smart attacker's distributed DDOS or other disruption efforts.

Technology can only be at best half the fix for the panopticon problem. The other half has to be political.
