Digital colonialism, surveillance capitalism, and a libre software future

Why are most mainstream platforms free of charge? Why is the answer to this first question a threat to humanity's future? What can we do about it? With a historic perspective, citing authors like Shoshana Zuboff, Marshall McLuhan, and Yanis Varoufakis, I try to give a perspective of how dystopian digital platforms nowadays are personal data extraction machines, how this machine works, the power of media (after S.Freud and E.Bernays), and why it is so critical for the future of humanity to choose libre software and ethical platforms.


Jose Castro has been a GNU/Linux user since 2001. Jose has worked sporadically on computer areas as web developer, monkey and programmer. He also works on permaculture design and land development. Since the pandemic Jose has been solo campaigning for libre software and ethical use of digital platforms with the aim of non-techie people, giving talks and generating material.
