Winbreds would like you to believe that principles and morality is bad.
They are self-proclaimed “pragmatics”, which in Winbred words roughly translates to “do things without regard to its greater effect on the World”.
I support Free Software because it’s better for the World. If software engineers worked together instead of against each other, we wouldn’t have to reinvent the same wheels over and over.
Proprietary software has the idea that taking something that can be copied infinitely and artificially restricting it’s supply (artificial scarcity) is somehow a sensible idea. That we should invest millions to write software and impose it on our users, a software which serves no other purpose but make their software less useful and restrict their rights (DRM).
Instead of hiring thousands of engineers to make improve the state of technology, we must hire thousands of lawyers and sue each other ad infinitum in courts over vaguely worded software patents.
We are on the verge of a world without suffering and death. We already have the technology to distribute the sum of human knowledge to all humanity.
But Winbreds are busy coming up with more inventive ways to fuck over each other to care about any of that.
The right tool for the job, but nobody asks why the job exists in the first place.
It’s no matter. Winbreds are only interested on what is the optimal life configuration for pissing, shitting and fucking. Essentially, they think and act no different than an animal would and they build their life without any higher philosophy or purpose. That’s pragmatism.
Hooray for pragmatism.
