Info: http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/faqs/libertarianism.html is Eric Raymond's
libertarian FAQ page.  Read it and decide if the Linux community is that or
of a more communitarian bent.  To find out what "communitarian" is, read
F.A. Hayek.  Hayek was a British prof type about WWII time frame.  _The Road
to Serfdom_ covers this directly.  This will explain how Communism, Fascism,
and Socialism are all variations on a theme.  http://laissezfaire.org is a
fine place to find such books.  http://www.self-gov.org/hope.html describes
the little diamond shaped quiz libertarians love to hand out, and how it
fully replaces the left-right labels that were only appropriate for about a
year in the French revolution.

Linux: I'm thinking October for the install-fest.
