We live in a society. We specialize our jobs. We shouldnt have to know how to self host.

@Laurelai ignorance is the paved road to using Facebook and Twitter...

@Matemann One could say the same about any specialized skillset controlled by capitalism. Its capitalism thats the problem. Not specialization.


@Laurelai so, what you are saying is: ignorance is communist? 😉

As it turns out, a healthy decentralized system with capable, non-ignorant users is probably the closest you'll ever get to a truly communist system. Specialize, but don't stop learning.

@Matemann Im all for expanding ones knowledge when they can, but some people cant for various reasons

@Laurelai I am curious: how is basic network technology knowledge "controlled by capitalism"?

@Laurelai if I can't, for various reasons, learn how to participate in street traffic, I have to take the bus, even if that is inconvenient and comes with disadvantages you might describe as "inevitable effects of capitalism". If I don't want to be limited by his schedules, I better learn road safety rules.
