Admittedly, there is probably a lot of confirmation bias, but Mastodon seems to lean heavily socialist/communist. I agree with a lot of the "Workers unite against the bosses!!"
...except I quit my job to work for myself. So, am I the boss?
@LexPendragon Good question. I would say that you're still a worker selling your time and effort to survive.
However you've cut out a bunch of rent-seeking middlemen, reclaimed a measure of autonomy, and aren't necessarily making pennies on every dollar of value your work creates.
