Goodbye to Patreon

In this video, Dave Rubin and I focus on four issues:

(1) our departure from Patreon (as of Jan 15, 2019);
(2) plans to create an alternative creator-funding platform, with multiple payment options, and with protection for free speech foremost and center as a guiding principle;
(3) the exceptional danger posed by the increasing willingness of payment processors such as MasterCard, Visa and PayPal to monitor, judge and regulate the spending habits of their customers;
(4) the pressure being applied to such companies by organizations designed precisely for that purpose (such as “Change the Terms (https://www.changetheterms.org/), aimed at the elimination of what they regard as “hate speech” online and everywhere else).
