So let's start changing that, it is not going to come from the government,
and it is not going to come from the corporations.... but it can come from
free(dom) software (at least in part), so let's do that!!

We won't win if we say "this is how the world workes", although that is true,
it cannot be an argument for how the world is going to be if we want change,
and I want change and I see you want it too :-))).

(btw, saw on discovery an interesting story about how `capitalism' grew
 in England due to canals and small enterprise on them.)
