Linux is developed and supported by “community of freely associated individuals” who interact in a stateles, classless and moneyless environment that has abolished the private property of means of production. And since private property is abolished, individuals are no longer deprived of access to means of production so they can freely associate themselves (without social constraint) to produce and reproduce their own conditions of existence and fulfill their needs and desires. Linux is a Small-world network of strangers being linked by a mutual acquaintance. It is Participatory, user-owned and user-oriented. Linux aims at the empowerment of the “weak” who has been excluded from decision-making processes through discrimination based on disability, race, ethnicity, religion, or gender. Only with Linux can users decide on the features they want in their operating system.
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need”
(Karl Marx, Critique of the Gotha Program, 1875)
In a Linux environment which we call "community", each person would be motivated to work for the good of group despite the absence of a social mechanism compelling them to work, because work would have become a pleasurable and creative activity. Each person should work as hard as they can, but each person should best develop their particular talents.
This is the type of “International society” that most great thinkers dreamt of from Karl Marx to Albert Einstein. A decentralized anarchist and communist society where love, peace and collectivity reign supreme. Linux is a humanist philosophy focusing on people's allegiances and relations with each other, a Ubuntu.
"I am what I am because of who we all are."
(Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee)
“A person with Ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, based from a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.”
(Archbishop Desmond Tutu)
Nelson Mandela explained Ubuntu as follows:
A traveller through a country would stop at a village and he didn't have to ask for food or for water. Once he stops, the people give him food, entertain him. That is one aspect of Ubuntu, but it will have various aspects. Ubuntu does not mean that people should not enrich themselves. The question therefore is: Are you going to do so in order to enable the community around you to be able to improve?
We all believe in "humanity to others". "We are the future of the world we are communism"
Communism is bad!!!!!!
