Civil society funding fares better in theory, except to the extent that
network analysis can reveal whether civil society organizations also
receive government funding, and then the same arguments I mentioned
previously still apply.

In practice, however, any funding organization can be accused of
ideological bias and a media campaign can be waged to discredit said
funding organization, and thus, by extension, the recipient of said funding.

Moreover, in many cases, and as some have mentioned in this thread,
liberationtech projects don't have the luxury to pick and choose where
their funding comes from, since the survival of the organization depends on
securing funding, wherever it may come from.
