I actually share your pessimism regarding this, which for me is not really pessimist but a reality of what could become of this project.

I'm way more interested in the future of the Librem 5 project, even if that itself just end's up being a mere seed to another project in the far future.

Why exactly?

I understand the fear of having a device that is recording information, something all modern smartphones (and other devices inside the IoT category) do already without permission or notice of any kind.

But here you have an open-source/libre application that you can audit doing it for an specific reason, only when you activate it, and capable of sending (or not at all) notifications through a secure and encrypted network. The device itself would can be encrypted, the application downloaded outside the Play Store and if you don't want Android you could use a device that has support for other more open-source and transparent alternatives like LineageOS, Replicant or Sailfish OS.

Is pro-independence in the context of the Procés. Many self-described anarchist participate inside the CUP, the CDRs and have a really though time finding their ground between their views and supporting a Catalonian Republic that will end in just another capitalist State.

The votes of today just reflected this perfectly. The most voted party was Cs, followed by ERC and JxCat. The most voted parties all sit at the right-spectrum, and some activists still think that a Republic will bring a government like Rojava, or even a slightly-leftist government? They are blind to the reality.

I just shared the information, but I don't really support it. Of course I'm in for of declaring independence, emancipation and the right to self-determination, but not to just go and build yet-another-State, people will never be free if they keep pushing for the same apparatus that suppresses them.
