    Or are you talking about PC as in Political Correctness?
    Both the PC and the internet were developed as part of public schemes - the internet by DARPA (and the web by CERN), the PC more difficult, but started taking shape in Bletchley Park - publicly funded cryptological research to break Nazi cyphers.

      Regarding politics: you gotta love the completely skewed political definitions that US people spread... The nazis were leftists? The "democratic" party in the US is leftist? LOL
      I wonder where do they learn this, random posts in reddit/4chan/stormfront? Are people so stupid as to believe everything they read in the internet?
      LOL a european believing that his view of left and right apply to every other region and country like they don't have their own definitions of the term LOLOLOLOL

      Am I doing it right?

      Seriously though, how many times must it be stated in this thread that there's no global definition of left vs right and that said terms only make sense within the microcosm of the governmental region you're looking at.

        I thought in most regions the left disowned the military, and thus military R&D divisions such as DARPA

          There, I fixed it for you. You're welcome!
          - The rise of ISIS? I didn't realise Dubya, Merkel and Cameron were Liberals.
          - The KKK? Nice historical revisionism there. Last I checked, it were the religious right-wing Conservatives in the south creating the Klan.
          - Drug dealers? Lol! If people on the left had their way, you wouldn't even need them. Besides, dealing drugs is inherently Capitalist and pro-free market, no? Supply and demand?
          - The main reason we're still dealing with AIDS is that religious nutjobs are pushing their cray cray agenda. Circumcisions don't prevent STDs. Condoms, free medication and regular screenings do. Deal with it!
          - Government corruption: Widespread on both, left and right.
          - Crippling debt: Saint Reagan says "Hello"!
          - Genocide: Because Hitler was such a nice guy...
          - Violent crime: Increased by the fact that Conservatives don't want to strip away the "rights" of "good guys" to own guns.
          - Racism and hate: A rather Conservative trait. Often coupled with religious zeal.
          - Inequality: Literally the freaking reason the left exists in the first place, to solve inequality.

          - Prosperity: Made your first billion yet?
          - Opportunity: Hahaha!
          - Industry: Where? In China?
          - Equality: Yea. Because nothing says "equality" like a single mom making 22k/year working fultime for a guy who makes that much per week...
          - Medicine and Science: Is what the Right has always sought to destroy. Heck. A great number of you nutjobs believe earth is 6,000 years old, Man once rode on dinosaurs and that vaccines cause autism.
          - Freed the slaves: Is what Abraham Lincoln did. A "Big government" Liberal by today's standards.
          - Defeated Hitler & the Nazi's: Is what an FDR led US army did. Remember FDR? The guy his peers called a "bloody Socialist"?
          - Defeated Communism: Communism defeated itself. Saint Reagan had little to nothing to do with it, past starting the first Iraq war.
          - Defeated Osama Bin Laden: Is what a (quote) "Muslim Communist taking our guns!" instantiated (they merely killed the guy. His ideas are alive and well, sadly).
          - Defeated Saddam Hussein: Can't argue with that. At least you're owning up to your "sides" failures there...
          - Personal responsibility: But only if you're a rich guy seeking to ship off jobs and dodge taxes. Or a maniac with a gun. Certainly not if you're a woman seeking an abortion.
          - Safety, Law enforcement: Paid by taxes, provided by "Big government".

              It's not like the Soviet Union, The People's Republic of China or North Korea.

              A lack of representation doesn't equal a forceful putdown.
              I'm not trying to be rude, but you're the one that sounds overly dramatic. The real fact of the matter is that in America there isn't much difference between a conservative and a liberal. The witch hunts don't happen anymore. Get over it. The sooner Americans realize that we are all Americans and there is no difference between us the better off we'll all be. Fuck liberalism and conservatism. Life requires both. If you get a rash, you definitely want to be liberal with the cream. If you earn you're own money then you need to be conservative with it. Everyone is both liberal and conservative depending on their circumstances.

              EDIT: Even the environmentalists that are considered extremely liberal tree huggers and whatnot want people to actively try to revert to the stone age. They want you to be conservative with how much you drive and to be conservative by shutting off unused lights. They want you to avoid using a blender if you can get away with not using it.

              My point is that this whole idea of conservatives being inferior is bullshit. It usually comes down to that the most liberal people are also the most conservative people. People on both sides are all in fact on the same side.

                I must admit I think all of these "good riddance, if they can't stand the heat" kind of comments, are complete and utter nonsense.

                I want the most talented people there is, to develop the most central piece of software on my system, not that most talented that is willing/capable to put up with a shitty environment. That is quite simply too big a reduction of talented mass.

                One would assume that the purpose around Linux kernel development is to develop the best dammed kernel possible and so they should focus on setting up an environment that attract a the best people. Full stop.

                  You should maybe remember that Linux is already the most successfull free software project there is, rivalling many commercial top projects with tons of corporate policies, and among them, "human resources management" leechers.
