NO! Mix it! Everything we do IS political. "humanity to others" IS the
opposite of the everyday politics we have. We, the open-source community,
are blue-printing the human society of the future. Open-Source on top of
the internet (everybody is connected to everybody) is something totally
new to the world. And as everyone of us knows: It just works!
Open-Source is, and always was, a concept of a better world. And there
is no need to hide this!
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
