The root problem is that of incentives. First-parties want to monetize without charging users. Current answer to this is ads. Personalized ads pay better, hence tracking exists. If resisted, FPs will retain server-side tracking and worse, bring in-content, unblockable ads.
Can we make non-personalized ads more profitable than personalized ads or in-content ads for first-parties? Should we? I have my preferences ("No ads of any kind, even if this means less content"). But is that the best?
I cannot stress enough how important it is to understand that Apple, Google, or Amazon can simply _decide_ to remove access to anything you've "purchased", including many physical goods (if they are internet-connected and running proprietary software), and you have absolutely no recourse.

The answer is easy: put the original on peertube or wherever, and put a shorter version or a teaser on youtube, with a link to the rest. Give people a path toward discovering the approach to video sharing that doesn't take advantage of them.
Don't be satisfied slouching to youtube if you are supposed to be an organization with a vision! Give people what they want, reach them, and push things in the right direction! #privacy

Using #FreeSoftware everyday from OSes (for desktop and mobile) to a music player, I've realized the value of freedom of software and the reason why free software is not the matter of price (gratis).
Basically this is the matter of rights, responsibility, and ethics of the civil society. See "Mutual recognition of freedom" by Hegel.
It is unfortunate that free software has been mainly the topic of computer geeks and established thinkers around the world have not thought about that quite much.
Marina Hyde continues:
"If you give a minister a brief that encompasses the entire media, the UK’s data strategy, regulating big tech, 5G rollout, cyber-security, the charity sector, the whole of sport and the £100bn-plus creative industries, and they spend so much as ONE NANOSECOND fanning up some culture war nonsense about panto, that isn’t so much playing with the box as taking a shit in it. And nobody, other than fellow infants, wants to see that."
Marina Hyde in The Guardian is sharp and funny, as usual.
"Even so, I had to balk at the Spectator’s suggestion that Nadine “will oversee a more punchy attitude to the culture war aspect of her brief”. Sorry, but what culture war aspect of her brief?! Psychologists say that if you give a child a present and they end up playing with the box, then the toy you gave them was too complicated for them."
