I'm not sure what kind of propaganda "history" books you were "educated" from, but you may wish to do some independent thinking and research of your own.
    The Nazis were leftists (apparently Marxists, even) now?

    Interesting...

    Is that why they were supported by American businessmen like Henry Ford and Prescott Bush? Is that why they were pushing for a religiously inspired society based on a very Conservative hierarchy (women had to know "their place", the lowly peasant had to shut up, etc)? Is that why they pushed for general armament (arming even the population and removing bans on weapons put into place by the Weimar Republic)? Is that why their whole ideology was based on social darwinism and "dog eat dog"? Is that why they came out in strong support of big business, becoming basically the first country to embrace "Trickle Down"?

    You might want to take off your rose tinted glasses and shed your indoctrination.
    Because if the Nazis were "leftist", so is your beloved Tea-Party and so are you.

    And you think Marxism, responsible for the death of 50+ Million people in the 20th century, is a good thing. Someone here needs to review their History, and it isn't me.

    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.

    Yes. I do realise that. However, people make it sound overly dramatic.
    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.
