Moglen’s Utopia

The reason why our plans for freedom work better than other peoples’ is that they include a sequence of activities ” proof of concept, running code and the solicitation of partnership. First you make it, then it works, then you invite people to make it better.

Most of the people that have struggled for freedom have proposed a utopia ” “I know of a place that’s never existed, but if we go there it will be better.” It turns out that as a mode of constructing freedoms there are problems with that method.
