Oh oops, sorry! Then yes, that eminently makes sense, I imagine people who are passionate about something worthwhile are disproportionately likely to be doing it in free software somewhere and that's a good place to look for them.

I think my preferred job for you is benevolent dictator of the world, because you're similar politically to me and then I don't have to do it

*hugs* I thought the same thing about you!

I'm not certain how much our current leaders are screwing up because they have (IMHO) the wrong priorities, and how much because they're stuck in a system which enforces the wrong things and I couldn't make the changes I'd like to make if I was in charge. (In the current system, not necessarily as dictator.)

I did consider considering that at the start of my post, but I decided to concentrate on what I'd _like_ to do. And temperamentally, if no-one else can do the dictator-of-the-world job, I'd rather try it, than let someone screw it up, but I'd _rather_ that someone else shared my priorities but were temperamentally suited to it.

Yes!

This is a big problem, and one I've spent some time considering. My personal tutor was big on me being Britain's great hope, which was sweet but ultimately misguided, so this is an argument I had a lot with him, half a lifetime ago.


(er, the userpics aren't relevant I just noticed that I'd used one from Norway and one from Iceland and went round filling up with Denmark and Sweden for Scandinavian completeness.)
