They consented their framework to be used for development. I don’t consent my app to be redistributed. Why is it an issue?

Are you using GPL licensed software? Because you need to consent to that license, which can include redistribution. (N.b. that Linux is GPL v2.)

Fortunately, tankies aren’t leftists, since authoritarianism and hierarchy is necessarily a right-wing viewpoint.

Right-wing politics describes the range of political ideologies that view certain social orders and hierarchies as inevitable, natural, normal, or desirable.

Left-wing politics describes the range of political ideologies that support and seek to achieve social equality and egalitarianism, often in opposition to social hierarchy as a whole.

Since the two instances run by the developers are generally pro-genocide and pro-authoritarianism, those are some huge sticking points for Lemmy going forward. Federation doesn’t help because they control the biggest instances and the development of the software itself. I wouldn’t be surprised if the developers invited more people into the core group and stepped down from a leadership position to avoid being a lightning rod for all of the ecosystem.
