Freedom of Speech

A principle that supports the freedom of an individual or a community to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation, censorship, or sanction. The term "freedom of expression" is sometimes used synonymously but includes any act of seeking, receiving, and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.



The suppression of speech, public communication, or other information, on the basis that such material is considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, politically incorrect or "inconvenient" as determined by government authorities or by community consensus.


Every person is born with a natural right to Freedom of Speech, Expression, Association, and Assemble. This mission is to ensure those natural rights can be secured personally by all.


The mission employs a number of methods to ensure success.



Invisible Direct Network - an ad-hoc fully decentralized P2P overlay network using TOR, I2P, Bluetooth, WiFi-Direct, Satellites, Full-Spectrum Radio, and LiFi to support private uncensored communications.


Censorship Resistant Routing

Routes around censorship attempts by using unblocked networks and peers as relays.


Decentralized Peer-to-Peer Open-Source

All code is open-sourced and uses no servers - strictly peer-to-peer. No data is sent to 3rd parties. All data is encrypted in transit using both the local node keys and your keys.


Decentralized IDentifier

Pluggable, self-sovereign, decentralized, people and/or automation-controlled universal ID, called DID or Decentralized IDentifier using OpenPGP. Only you have the keys. Build reputation with them.


Key Ring (1.2)

Encryption and Signing keys kept safe on specialized flash drives where once added they can not be read nor changed. Encryption and signing happens on-drive only. OpenPGP used for standards support.


Info Vault (1.3)

The application allows for the user to grant access control to their personal information on their device if desired. Access can be revoked when its no longer desired for them to have it. This will end widespread data breaches.
