And they are not equal. That's my problem with it at the moment.
I don't really understand how this democratic-meritocratic principle
works. And what you explain below with Microsoft, for me it is not
meritocratic or democratic that's an ethical aspect.
Democracy means that everyone has the potential to contribute,
Democracy simply means representation of the people (community). Even
established democracies don't have referendums on every issue. Party
political systems mean that there are real limits to what any individual can
contribute. I can't go and contribute directly to new legislation other than
by saying what I think and hope it will influence someone. That is not
really much different from a FOSS project.
What you say about democracy, political parties eg is the today
situation. But eventually think about this:
Democratic systems have the power and lot of money for secret
"cyber-tasks", for a hidden worldwide web of information and spy-systems
and so on. They find it important, they give the money to do it and they
have the will to do it. That's possible but not a better flow of
information between citizens and politicians to create a more real
democracy. There is no "democratic-task", no worldwide-web of democratic
informations. There is no will to involve more people in decisions or
for the prefield of decisions.
What will I say with this?
Can we organize the structure of LO with examples in mind which have not
the will for transparancy?
Or must there be a thinking like:
ESC has the final decision, OK.
And for that, what are the best conditions that they have the best
informations to make the best decisions for the best (open) Office Suite?
Eventually this is one other task for the time after the phase of beginning.
