About the Freedom category

How technology changes and effects freedoms, especially freedom of expression.

Freedom is the third of The Pyramids of Humane Technology which were developed to guide this community.


The highest levels are those of freedom. The freedom to express ourselves, and with our human digital rights ensured, just as they can be in real life. Right to privacy, to be anonymous, and even to stay offline, to be unreachable when we want. With wellbeing and the social fabric both extending and transcending to the internet we can be free to engage ourselves fully with all our heart. Not engagement with tech but with other people, and express our genuine emotions, letting human values shine. At the top of this pyramid we can truly unleash our creativity and realize our visionary ideas. Tech now allows us to flourish and the future is bright.

When you create a topic in Freedom you may also choose one of four sub-categories:

A sub-category is optional so you can skip it if it doesn’t clearly fit within one of these themes.

Sub-categories are not set in stone, so if you have feedback on changing the structure of the society category please share your ideas in a comment or in Feedback.
