Social media constitutes the digital public square. Walking away takes their power in the short term, but in the long term I'd rather keep the rights I had in public squares for my entire adult life, up until about 2016.

I'm tired of losing rights just because some tech oligarch added the words 'on a computer' to a patent application. I'm tired of living in a world where I can only rent products and never actually own them just because there is a computer chip in it somewhere. We have to fight these things, we can't just run away to our own spaces.

I don't just want to swap one set of tech oligarchs for another set with values closer to my own. I want to reign in the tech oligarchs, period.
