I see this crackdown on Trumpism more as a response from the state because it was threatened than a response from the left. There may be many on the left who cheer this on, but it is not directed by those on the far left. This is a response from the state. The state does not care about your right of free speech if there is an attack on it. The state will protect it’s power structures no matter what.
I think it would be nice to have the ability to add a mastodon toot into Lemmy and have it display the toot in a nice format and be linked to the toot’s server, but I don’t think replies to it should be standard from Lemmy since there likely could be different conversations occurring on different mediums.
I also think it would be nice to have PeerTube video integrated well into Lemmy but again the replies on Lemmy should not be the same as the replies on the Peertube format. Likely it will be a specific community focused discussion on Lemmy.
I can help with futurology.
