Talk about freedom, but don't mention it
I was quite dissapointed when I saw some people's reactions to my last article where I tried to point to the reason why there should be no rivalry and wars between various GNU/Linux distributions, in that case between Debian and GNU/Linux.. Plain and simple, it is freedom and it can hardly be better described by any other word however corny you find it. If I would be asked about it again I would say the same thing.
This freedom is the reason why am I using a free operating system, GNU/Linux, to write this, run this site, do all that I need or like to do with my computer without any restraints, but my own imagination. There is choice, alot of choice, and how else, why else would this choice exist if it wasn't for freedom that made it possible.
I am puzzled by the aversion *alot* of people have at the mere mentioning of the word *freedom*, people who would at the same time claim that they're all for it and sure they are, as they are enjoying all the fruits of pursuing this freedom themselves. Why oh why is it so hard to talk about it with them then? Why are they avoiding like a plague? Is it just because it's not stylish anymore? It's not trendy? It's not something that one would mention in a TV commercial?
Was this society really reduced to that state in which we are not even capable to think about the "higher values" or at least talk about the, because public somehow doesn't like the way it sounds.. Is it the anti-communism paranoia???
You know, this site is all about that freedom, that ugly, unpopular thing. No wonder so little people are afraid to speak.
God damn it wake up people!
But no, I'm not quitting! I'm gonna repaint the meaning of that word! Libervis Network will be all about it, one way or another! And it'll spread, slowly but surely until you can't escape it anymore! Images will be created, animations will be brought to life, music will pump it up! Your senses will feel how good it is to be free! :yes:
