YouTube is fucked up. But Stef knew this kind of shit was coming for YEARS now. And he still decided to continue to invest hundreds of hours into a platform that could have all of his work disappeared without warning or good reasoning.

There's a lesson here. Never put all of your eggs in some jew's basket, because one day that jew may decide he's sick of your shit and just dump all your eggs right onto the pavement (before swiping and pocketing a few for himself, of course). Hopefully YouTube takes a nosedive after all this bullshit. Even more hopefully, maybe aspiring "content creators" will learn from this.

To those of us with real jobs, this seems to trivial and silly. Some website curators decided they don't want someone's stuff on their website- a dick move, no doubt, but a violation of human rights? No. Having a man work 14-15 hours a day in sweltering heat 6 days a week is a bit closer to a human rights violation than removing your videos from a website that generously allows anyone to upload videos onto.

He is continuing to invest into his content, which is independent from the underlying platform.

How is he investing specifically into youtube?

As soon as a competing platform is available, he can upload his content to that new platform and ignore youtube.

Oh, so he's not invested in YouTube at all? So being banned and having all of his videos taken down should be no big deal, since he has zero investment in it.

He invested countless hours into making content for YT with the intent of drawing more viewers and maybe getting some ad money, patrons, and more new freedomainradio listeners. Losing access to YT would certainly be a blow to Stef's brand- meaning the investment of hours and money he put into making/uploading YT content blow up in his face.

Who knows how long it'll be before a serious competing platform comes along? Idk what kind of money Stef makes, but I'd assume a rather significant amount comes both directly and indirectly from YT. Is he supposed to just go without that revenue for 6 years until jewgle finally loses its monopoly?

Don't mistake me- I hope for the best for Stefan. My only problem with him is that he allowed himself to fall into this position even when the warning signs were all there, for years now. I wish there was a great competitor that he had access to so that being thrown off of YT wasn't all "doom and gloom" and "OMG MUH FREE SPEECH" hysteria.
