List Name Free Developers of the World (Free Developers )
Purpose: Free Developers of the World is a discussion area for the formation of a democratic entity for the development of free/open software. The free company (the world's first) will be owned and run by developers worldwide on a democratic basis in a sacred trust for the benefit and protection of the world's citizens. It will pay all developers to work on free/open software, and all developers will receive company shares and stock options. All software of the free company will be licensed under the GPL and remain free/open forever, because all software must be available to all current and future generations of developers, so that they can be the first line of defense to protect the world from the inevitable tyrannical tendencies of some lurking powerful forces. Software is law, and machines are a non-human police force with the potential to threaten the liberties and freedoms of everyone. Therefore, the creation of software, like that of law, must be governed by free, democratic principles, not principles of commercial monarchy or oligarchy. The world has moved on from political monarchies in the name of freedom and liberty. It must now do the same with economic monarchies. Software is the first industry. The free company, the first step.
