America is beset on all sides by those who envy
our freedom and prosperity, and, as hard as it may be, we
accept some of the blame for allowing this situation to develop. We
have been much too tolerant of those people, both within and without
of our borders, who choose to preach hateful speech against our way of
life and our most sacred institutions. We have allowed jobless hippies
to loot and pillage Seattle. We have allowed pro-Arab organisations to
recruit for their murderous Holy War on our University campuses. And
we have provided funding and support for Open Source - a group who's
avowed aim is the destruction of America's largest software corporations.
Could the resemblance between the attack on the World Trade Centre
and this cowardly attack on the foundation of American capitalism be any
more obvious? Will we wake up one morning to find the shining towers
of American prosperity struck down by the insidious, anti-property,
internationalist agenda of the Open Source movement? How many
jobs will be destroyed? How many hard-working Americans' lives will
be left in tatters? Is it not clear that Open Source is simply a
sugar-coating on an assault on America - an attack as vicious as anything that Free Software's Islamist soulmates have been able to muster?
Most disturbing of all is the possibility of a violent attack on
America by Free Software 'hackers'. Although the
Open Source revolutionaries tactics have so far been peaceful, how
long can that they stay that way?
The war on terrorism must begin in America, and it must be a war
against the terrorism of ideas as much as the terrorism of guns and
bombs. We cannot allow these cowardly 'hackers' to undermine the
fabric of our society from their college bedrooms and
welfare-sponsored bedsits. I hope that the manifest technical
inadequacies of 'free software' will cause this hateful movement to
die on it's own, but if it does not I pray that our President has the
courage to attack this threat to our freedom as vigorously as he is
attacking the other terrorists of this world.
