Have to agree with Garak here, all exploted workers should #strike, if the withdrawal of their labour disrupts the "economy" then clearly their contribution is important and their demands should be heard.

A #ProprietaryPeriod for #JWST is essential if people with limited research time are to be able to use the telescope. The only people who would benefit from the removal of proprietary periods are astronomers at well-resourced institutions (i.e. large private universities) who have lots of research time. Those who would lose out include astronomers at public and teaching-focused universities – such as almost all minority serving institution.

Self-censorship is when fear of consequences stops you from speaking.
When concern or respect for others stops you from speaking, we just call that being a decent human.
