I think its important to understand what is at stake here, and the massive number of asset-rich entities in the ‘crony private-sector’ who, along with their counterparts in the MSM, and Global Government Inc., intend to eviscerate the open-ethos and ‘net neutral’ paradigms which have enabled the Internet to flourish, until recently. The reason they have that focus is due in part to the enormous wealth-generating potential of the Internet. However, on the distaff side, the Internet as presently constituted, poses a grave threat to ‘their’ hegemony over the global channels of wealth creation. It poses an even ‘graver’ threat to their counter-parts in the public-sector.
Regardless of whether you like, love, or loathe Donald Trump, the fact that he managed to get elected, resulted in exposing the depth of corruption which has subsumed the government(s) of ‘Etats Unis’. In particular, the blatant expropriation of constitutional authorities by the losing party, to launch an extra-judicial Coupls D’Etat against Trump, even before he was sworn in.
Even as a longtime, profoundly Libertarian individual, I remain stunned at the depth of it, and even more concerned over the continuing indifference and incomprehension of what is taking place, by our electorate. I could go into more detail as to the implications of all that, but at this point, there is no secure forum I know of, wherein such subjects can be discussed.
If I’m not mistaken, the Void Linux team is in France (?), or at least, not here in Amerika. That was a major reason I zeroed in on Void Linux. Whatever you do, don’t start incorporating things in the USA, or inviting government regulatory oversight of any kind into what you’re doing. My advice: assemble a team of committed individuals with a history of personal collaboration and trust – and quietly go to work consolidating and fine-tuning Void Linux yourselves, with no urgent need to bring out a next release for maybe six-months at least. Assuming I’m able to build a distro based on the github sources recommended, I’m going to do the same thing. Since LT happens to live here in the same city I do, I’m hoping I can develop some informal contacts, and perhaps get some advice as to how best to communicate with, and expand a secure circle of folks with similar priorities.
