Fundamentally, the Indie Web is an idea!
The idea is that any person can and should have their own website on their own domain that they own and control.
All humans have the right to access, read and participate on the Internet free of restriction, censorship and surveillance.
All humans have the right to own a website that they have complete control of free from censorship for the entirety of their life and that is preserved after their death.
How to implement the second "All humans" idea?
The Indie Web is made of people. It’s made by me. It can be made by you too. There’s no gatekeeper. You can join anytime without anyone’s permission. The Indie Web is made by everyone.
