I laugh at the people trying to "fix" Youtube. Youtube is it's own thing, a private company and they can do what they want. Youtube crapping on content creators and demonitization is actually only a symptom of a much larger problem.
Nobody is gonna fix Youtube, it's their own turf and they will do what they want. They don't want political videos, they don't want well informed commentary.
Something like 90% of their revenue comes from the 1000 or so videos from around 1000 or so channels that rotate on the trending feed. This is basically stupid reaction videos like "teens react to", makeup tutorials, stupid uninformative unboxing videos like iJustine/Unboxtherapy or really lame unoffensive to anybody comedy.
People need to be looking to other platforms. Things like LBRY are really promising as well as very smooth, slick and intuitive to use even for non tech people. The central model of classic streaming sites lends itself to what happened with Youtube. Youtube doesn't want to be "fixed", they want to become a click bait TV channel type service, not somewhere to watch actual unbiased product reviews or political commentary. I mean look at anything, all the channels that do unbiased product reviews who aren't bought out by whatever company is top dog of their niche get demonetized while the yes men that agree that everything is awesome make the front page e.g. Unboxtherapy.
Any other platform that follows the same central hosting model will inevitably fall victim to the same thing. Then you have countries around the world like the UK that are trying to censor social media, etc. We need to be moving away from centralized social media platforms instead of trying to "change/fix" them. They don't want fixing, Facebook/Twitter isn't actually going to change no matter whatever #boycott or news headline. People don't wanna hear it but the only fix is abandoning the platform, sucking it up and taking a loss on the new platforms until the internet changes and moves towards them.
