The Short Answer to Why Politics Don't Matter

September 17, 2021

Today it seems as though everyone has a bone to pick. Opinion and disagreement are no longer seen as means to constructively debate for benefit, but rather as a cause to silence and shame others.

Technology is science; politics are art. One's political persuasion is irrelevant in the context of science because science is objective while art is not.

It really is a shame that technology is met with so many people who only care to see the unnecessary disruption of otherwise prosperous and positive projects. I hope that those people soon get bored of software and decide to disturb some other field. Free Software has enough problems as it is.
