Yesterdays SC decision was a nice boost to the advocates of free speech. Perhaps the tide is turning?

The battles are certainly not going unfought. The SC decision was a major victory, to be sure.

There's just speech. Hate speech does not exist.

They ruled that the first amendment still exists, basically.

In effect, hate speech is free speech. There was a post here linking to the decision PDF. This is just a Fox story http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/06/19/supreme-court-rules-trademark-law-banning-offensive-names-is-unconstitutional.html

This situation is exactly the same as 8chan was in a few years ago, any and all payment methods were threatened into not allowing people to fund the site through their own pockets. the official excuse was always that they 'did not want wish to condone this that or the other' or some such nonsense.

At this rate we'll have to resort to sneaker-netting money to Putt just to pay the damn server bills.

Considering how important the work on this site is we may even have to go all-out and rely on people building their own at-home server networks and converting over to some sort of decentralized community-mesh-server-net to keep the site running at all!

these pedophile bastards are fighting us the EXACT same way they're fighting Trump.

So how did 8ch eventually resolve their issues?

A guy named Jim who lives in the Philippines with hotwheels, he took on personal bankrolling of the site though I'm not up on all the details myself.

I have seen posts that seem to suggest that he is some kind of upper-caste freemason weirdo and hotwheels has been essentially out of the public picture for months if not over a year now, the posts themselves could have simply been shill posts though, those are frequently of higher-caliber over on /pol/ than they are here.

I myself am slightly wary of jim due to limited knowledge of him, would recommend not falling into the same situation here.

There are many here who have advocated for decentralizing Voat. I think it might be a long-term goal. I think there are feasibility issues, though.

One issue is that Voat is written in .Net. LAMP servers are cheap and ubiquitous, you could set up one at home without incurring into licensing costs. With ISS+.Net you're excluding most of the hacky people.

I wonder if it would be possible to host subverses individually and have the main site work as a directional hub towards them? I can't imagine too much would change up-front for the users.

Has anyone put forward a viable idea|concept on the topic?

Pretty sure its Reddit. They know how to squeeze out sites from the internet. They go for the advertisers then they go for the means of donations. Reddit and their San Fran connects spread misinformation about Voat to get people to refuse them service without even knowing what Voat is like. It's possibly just Reddit fan boys but I think it's the higher ups as well.

Considering the size reddit, involvement from over there would not surprise me at all.

It seemed like when /r/T_D mods posted about VOAT they wanted to take over by a major influx. Unfortunately for them, their mods are cucks and were unable to build a new subverse. They had brought 1000 active users and maybe 50 of them realized reddits cuckocity and stayed here.

The problem for reddit is that VOAT does not rely on advertising. What it would take for reddit to bring us down is they have to pay a server X number of dollars. VOAT closing down would not bring me back to reddit.

That is because free speech is synonymous with racist speech, as it is the only type of speech that is verboten in the West. And the left knows this.

Through money and information, you can control the world. Jews dominate banking and information technology, it's no coincidence. Jews are responsible for this assault on free speech. But I'm sure you folks are already aware of this.

So are we supposed to support authority and wisdom and cunning and meritocracy? Or not?

By those metrics, Jews have done demonstrably well. I guess I get confused with the contradiction. On the one hand, goat supports strong men and intelligence and technology and the engineering and architecture feats of western man, but then also Jews are more intelligent, own everything, control everything, and have out-alpha-ed the west. But they are also evil and need to be destroyed, even though they apparently have mastered many of the traits voat goats seem to admire.

I have no real point, I just want to people to think more about their own notions of this, since it gets mentioned everyday here.

It always boils down to control. I don't understand; with all the money and infinite resources these people cannot understand that freedom of expression nurtures innovation and creative thinking, which can give you a better product, which can make you more money. But, no, they want control wherever they can squeeze it out of their victims. And what's the answer? They hate themselves and deep down they hate others although they pretend that they're perfect.

They don't want a better product, they don't want to improve society. Even their desire for more money is an indirect one; what they truly want is power, more and more power over other people. It is the nature of the parasite. Parasites/Communists/Globalists/Bankers/Politicians all want the same thing -- to conquer Man, whereas non-parasites, Creators, want something completely different -- to conquer Nature.

This fundamental difference between humanity has fueled conflict and suffering for millennia.

Well nature cannot be conquered because it is perfect in itself. Check out Masanobu Fukuoka. The problem arises when humans think they can improve on nature...
