“It doesn’t matter if Facebook, Google and the rest have no malicious intent, or if they really do want to “bring the world closer together”, or “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, or “develop services that significantly improve the lives of as many people as possible”. We need to be free and independent agents of our selves.”

I’d like to think that every post made on a blog outside the Facebook and Google ecosystems, each time somebody tries some open source software, and every time somebody installs an ad blocker are small acts of defiance; steps toward a freer internet.
