Mastodon meta, anarchy
@Some_Person While it has two aspects of anarchy (Federation and decentralization), I wouldn't call Mastodon a functioning anarchy as instances are (for the most part) still hierarchically organized.
Sunbeam, despite being built by anarchists, was still a hierarchical institution - when I joined, non-paying members weren't even allowed to vote.
I think Scuttelbutt is closer to anarchy than fediverse, though I do think fedi is a step in the right direction. The closest we get to anarchy on fedi are single-instance users or small instances where everyone is a mod/admin.
Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
