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.
