Once upon a time, FOSS enthusiasts were so concerned about Microsoft, that they recommended everyone use GMail and Google Apps.
Today the same crowd hates Google, so they recommend $SERVICE instead...
As long as $SERVICE is a provider in the cloud, on somebody else's computer, I'm shaking my head.
Many of the things being recommended are even more proprietary and locked-down than Google's stuff is!
Fighting monopolies is good. But don't lie to yourself that this helps software freedom.
I feel like not enough people focus on the fact that Germany wants to outlaw hosting Tor servers. A significant amount of Tor is hosted from Germany, but more importantly, if Germany outlaws it, many other countries that so far were afraid to do so will follow suite. All intelligence agencies despise Tor and lobby their governments to shut it down. It's a slippery slope.

I wouldn't mind seeing veganism/vegetarianism as the highly-encouraged default for a solarpunk culture, but yeah mandatory is too much
It's funny to think of solarpunk making anything mandatory, while most of solarpunk seems to be based around anarchism AFAIK
