Some people claim that instance-blocking weakens the fediverse, and undermines the point of federation.
This is the opposite of the truth.
The point of federation is that it limits the accumulation of power: no single instance can control fedi, because users can always switch instances without leaving fedi.
This is why fedi and fascism are fundamentally opposed -- and why the ability to block fascist/abusive instances is the very heart of federation's power to serve its users.

Also final pic for the sort of astroturf bot like accounts they have that are built to push their weird "buy our progressive stuff" brand but also pro trump and pulling their christian clothing GodInterest and societal together
(sorry for reupload spam, forgot to include the final pic)
