  • I decided I am an (anarchist) communist.

    I decided, because technology has implications on the rest of our society, to promote free software.

    I decided that libertarian left-wing politics should embrace worker control wherever it take hold; hence: if I support worker control in general, I should support free software in particular.

    I promote free software because it is made by and for the people who use it, without much interference from bosses.

    I promote free UNIX because it is useful, costs nothing, and makes me happy.

    I publish my own programs on the network in the hope that they will be useful for at least one human being.

    I decided what I am doing. And I decided I am a communist.

    Because software affects the society I live in, and because "political" is broadly used to indicate anything that affects society, and because I care about what sort of society I live in, I make "political" choices about software.

    I give meanings to the things I do.

    I want to be helpful to people, I want to do something useful for people. I decided that one way to do this is being communist.

    Hugs all around!
