an important report has just been published by my friend emmi: The Decentralized Web of Hate
"Fascists (and other bad actors) are [...] hosting manifestos resiliently, raising money anonymously, communicating securely to organize attacks, sharing weapons plans, and networking to build out their numbers."
"We cannot abandon p2p technology but we also can't ignore the risks. The only way out is through."
