"This isn't about the law anymore... The current state of copyright is kind of only peripherally related to the law. It's much more related to the policies of the platforms on which we operate our businesses and our lives. Which is a strange situation to be in as we realize that we are kind of CITIZENS OF CORPORATIONS" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BL829Uf2lzI

I just spent an hour reading the changelog for Mastodon v2.7.0 and the Highlights blog post: https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/01/mastodon-2.7/

I just did the math from all my work last year and even only paying myself €1000/month and adding everything up (VAT + Social Security, Salary Tax and other business taxes) for every €1 of profit, I have to pay €0,50 to the government. This is in a small scale business without any employees (just me) and pretty much at break even after all taxes and my small salary.
It's pretty crazy that at this scale 50% of all the money I make goes to taxes.
