Allow me to recommend the dedrm plugin for Calibre. This allows you to use your legal access to strip DRM from any ebook you own. You can then keep your Microsoft Store-bought ebooks. (But do it before the Store goes away!)

"no gods no masters" 2/2 Show more
in this we can see where this 'no gods' comes from and what it has always meant, it means no illegitimate divine other who rules over the individual, it means power and sovereignty of people people against the divinity being used to justify hierarchy. it is not an anti theist take, it's an anti power take. and in this, it becomes a powerful slogan to push back against the structures of power, and continues to be just that.
I understand there are people of faith for whom spirituality is a powerful part of their lives, and I respect that even if that isn't the same for me. that said, faith isn't the same as the institutions of organsed religion that have been used for systemic abuse and the centralisation of power. the subversion of these hierarchies is radical, and not an attack on having faiths . these institutions have, and hurt people, these institutions are not the fact or practice of having faith
TNB’s business model is to keep ALL of its deposits at the Fed and share a portion of the 2.4% interest with its customers. Safe. Simple. And even better than the original goldsmith banks.
You’d think the Federal Reserve would be jumping for joy. Finally! A bank that doesn’t risk its customers’ deposits. No more bailouts, no more financial crisis.
But you would be wrong. The Fed wants no part of this and has rejected TNB’s proposal.

"Arguably, it is as a consequence of the erosion of civil liberties in democratic countries since 9/11 that we have seen the rise of toxic enthno-nationalism and its associated violence, not as a result of too much of the wrong kinds of speech."
Nor as a lack of always-on mass surveillance of the whole population. Anyone who wants that is welcome to move to China, they always need more English teachers ...
