personally ive become less happy about it as time goes on

my main gripes are the erosion of cultures, mainly due to the world being addicts of american media

but also economic as it makes different countries too reliant on other countries, which sucks because those other governments arent elected by your country

If you think about it a bit, I think you can see that the bad effects of what is often called globalization also happens on a smaller scale inside countries, often with homegrown organizations/companies being the culprits. IMHO the underlaying problem is not globalization per se but rather that large monopolistic companies can use the power imbalance to take over local & foreign markets and push their one-size-fits-all products and cultural marketing onto people regardless of their wishes.

In a sense these large conglomerates are only piggybacking on a generally good trend of global economic interconnectivity that has brought a lot of positive development in the last decades.

That is not a byproduct of globalization but of liberalism, it has to have an hegemonic culture that invades others to secure its ideological superstructure. There are two ways, to reject globalization (therefore it is imperative for the need of ethno States; fascism) or to embrace globalization (capitalism and socialism/communism), only with Marxism can globalization trully bloom a la Star Trek.

do we want anyone’s values shoved down our throats? Does it really matter if it is the left or the right doing it? I’d want to kill both for it. Values and culture tend to change our time and with circumstance and therefore most are rather subjective, so trying to force that on others is unethical.

If I allow you to dress like a woman, mister, would you allow me to believe beings called angels fly and that a man name Jesus came back from the dead and walked on water and has an invisible daddy? Isn’t tolerance about allowing us to have our own values and to live with the consequences of those and isn’t Marxism a forced value? You can practice Marxism in a capitalist country, but how can you practice capitalism in a Marxist one? Isn’t it the freedom of choice that makes us good or bad? If I force you to be good (or imprison you), are you really good and can you really brag about no robbing anyone for 10 years when you were in jail for those years? And, unless I misunderstood, an ethno-state can be Marxist or any other political type and has nothing to do with fascism. The USA is very mixed, yet largely fascist and becoming more so every day.

When I was 17, I thought it was the best thing because I wanted a peaceful, orderly world. Then, my dad asked me one question: “If it becomes oppressive and there is then no place to immigrate to, then what?” I love choice more than most people, so this brought me back to reality. I am over 50 now and have seen the basics of human nature and it can be ugly. America is la land full of immigrants partly because they felt forced to leave their own countries - often because of abusive or mismanaged governments. Too many think that having one gov’t would solve this. But, does having hundreds of senators and congressmen in DC make America run well? Don’t we still have massive debt, unprovoked wars, interfere in the politics/elections of foreign governments, fail to keep toxins out of foods and products, and more? I will fight globalization (one government for the entire world) tooth and nail. Globalists sell you a communist or socialist utopia, but deliver a fascist technocracy where they have complete control. You think elites or gov’t is condescending now, just wait…

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
