I've long admired Basecamp, but I think today's announcement is a step in the wrong direction.
Prohibiting political discussions makes it hard to talk about inequality. Banning committees means shutting down Basecamp's DEI committee. Not "dwelling on past decisions" sounds a lot like not taking feedback.
Communication and inclusion are the lifeblood of any healthy organization. I think today's announcement is harmful to Basecamp and its employees.
