Young Children v. Free Riders

This is why I moved from OSS to reciprocal.

The commons needs to “bite back”, otherwise, we’re just prey waiting for predators to come in.

It bothers me greatly that the discourse in the FOSS world has largely been controlled by parasitic programmers (even more so than big corporations).

They value FOSS insofar as it allows them to do their jobs easily; and rather than having solidarity with their fellow workers developing the commons, they want everything free, not even because they want profits, but just because they want some conveniences.

This is one of the things that disillusioned me about FOSS. Understanding that it was programmers doing this to one another. Not even a good ol’ capitalists vs workers struggle.
