Free software and open source philosophies differ sometimes with radically different outcomes

Hi everyone,

occasionally, people in our community make mistakes. I do too, and in
this case, I spoke (or wrote) a bit hastily:

> I have no patience for socialism and I've never voted for the right.

These are strong words which I should not have put out there. The point
which I tried to make with them was well contained in the rest of the
mail: there are people, with strong opinions, from across the entire
political spectrum, and whether someone talks about Free Software or
Open Source is not a good indicator of where on this political spectrum
they fall.
