Hey there Patreon people! Sorry to say I won't be supporting Patreon anymore, because of the censorship they started doing recently, closing down accounts without warning. Many people (including big names like Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris) have left the platform now to support freedom of speech.

I'm not so interested in politics, but art is also about freedom of speech. Patreon themselves say "Patreon is a place where all types of artists can express themselves freely", but if they start censoring people they don't like, art on the internet is also at risk.

To be clear, it's not entirely Patreon's fault. They were probably pressured by PayPal+Stripe to start censoring. So PayPal+Stripe are the real bad guys, but Patreon was the one company that could have sided with its users against PayPal to keep the internet open. Instead they sided with PayPal+Stripe, and so now other people have to stand up instead. This will basically determine if content creators in the future will constantly be pressured to censor themselves, or risk losing their income.
A few nice videos if you want to understand what's going on:

And someone doing something about it directly:

The good news is, Jordan Peterson himself is launching his alternative to Patreon very soon, so this isn't the end, just a move. See you there soon!
