Open Source = Communism?
from the stupid-theories dept
Ah, here’s another one that belongs under the “stupid” topic I never created. Apparently someone has written an essay explaining how open source programming is communism. Open source software can easily be explained using your everyday capitalist economic models. I’ve done it a thousand times. I’m not about to give an economics lesson here and now, but if anyone’s that interested, post a comment.

Obviously the article’s author neither actually knows the meaning of the words “communism” nor “capitalism” nor understands the economic system actually in use in this country.
