De-platforming, works to prevent recruitment and peel away those on the pipeline that haven’t eaten the whole pill yet.

I think Mozilla’s suggestions

  • Reveal who is paying for advertisements, how much they are paying and who is being targeted.
  • Commit to meaningful transparency of platform algorithms so we know how and what content is being amplified, to whom, and the associated impact.
  • Turn on by default the tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation.
  • Work with independent researchers to facilitate in-depth studies of the platforms’ impact on people and our societies, and what we can do to improve things.

Are similar, they can help peel away the un-pilled (by exposing them to facts and logic) and expose those behind this, which might even disillusion a few pilled fokes (e.g oh it turns out I’m not risking arrest for the poor and downtrodden, just for a bunch of business owners, who wouldn’t piss on me if I was on fire)

However I don’t think anything is going to address the pilled, except removing their political base, which IMO can be done in part addressing the conditions in rural America, basically replacing FDRs new deal, that Nixon revoked. e.g https://berniesanders.com/issues/revitalizing-rural-america/

I think without the political base they claim to represent’s support, they become just a small cult of whackjobs that can be more or less ignored.

I think every fediverse tool lets hosts limit who they connect to.

TBH I’m not sure it’ll happen though, why did they create gab, then parler, instead of using mastodon, IMO because they want an echo chamber, so would rather follow the latest right-wing grifter than join established communities.
