This makes me upset. It's also why P2P software is so important; the government can technically stop hosters and seize servers, but if people run P2P software, that service can never actually die.
Governments seem to be coming for tech, as we're seeing with Canada seizing and regulating crypto accounts of their citizens now. We really need to rapidly move towards P2P solutions, even for more centralized alt-tech platforms.

could it be a catalyst to radicalize the population?

If the Patriot Act taught us anything, it's that the vast majority of people don't care enough about the government invading their privacy because most people don't have the time/resources to focus on issues like this. Of all the things that could catalyze the working class to radicalize, I think this is unlikely.

Do you even know what's on the legislation?
