{October 24, 2008}   Power, decisions and cowards

While I don’t really have a strong opinion on the suggestions in Ganneff’s announcement in d-d-a, as I haven’t had time to think deeply about the consequences that they would have, but which I foresee to be very important (they could have strong implications in the Debian Project), and making use of my freedom of speech, I must say that I agree with Joey and Julien. I don’t like how the whole proposal has been done, and I also fear the accumulation of power that slowly seems to be going along in Debian. I believe that spread power usually is much better and healthier than the opposite, and if it’s true that decisions are being increasingly taken in cabals, we’re going in the wrong direction. About Julien’s post on people being too coward to say what they think, a long time ago I posted about NM process saying that “If you want to finish university, you should take care about getting on with the teachers. The result are submissive citizens that won’t face authority even if they know they’re right, in order to avoid problems“, and “What should be taken care about is that the NM process don’t filter side (lateral) thinking, creativeness, confrontation with authority or the will to make a better world. I wouldn’t like an NM process that promoted the same submissive values that the educational system does“. I hope this is all a misunderstanding and things aren’t changing for worse. In any case I’m not afraid of sharing my thoughts on the matter.

I loved the phrase about the university and the citizens. You are now part of my fortunes :-)
