The business model of Patreon is simple enough: Through its website, patrons are able to donate money to their favorite content creators. Artists, writers and public intellectuals.
So the theory. In practice, Patreon polices it users’ online behavior, for example on Twitter and Youtube, and bans the misbehaved from its platform permanently if evidence of wrongthink was found.
This punishment in these days of the Internet age is meant to destroy those users livelihood. Shame on you Patreon!
