Self appointed guardians in the spotlight

Self appointed guardians in the spotlight

We are familiar with Peter Joseph’s references to the self-appointed guardians of the status quo – those all-too-abundant, willfully ignorant members of society who seem to regard any criticism of the current system as an attack on their own dignity, self-esteem and social status, and who are all too ready with their belittling strawman attacks as soon as the RBE concept is introduced. We have all spent time sharing online resources helping to arm ourselves with various tips on how to cut through their logical fallacies and maintain a strong, credible position in any debate.

Innovazione nella Pubblica Amministrazione


I movimenti Generazione Giovani e Zeitgeist Italia rappresentati rispettivamente da Vincenzo Russo e Vincenzo Barbato lanciano l’iniziativa “Innovazione nella Pubblica Amministrazione”. Attraverso l'introduzione di sistemi operativi Open Source negli apparati della pubblica amministrazione e nelle scuole, sostituiremo i costosi programmi "proprietari" (come Microsoft Windows e Office) con loro analoghi completamente gratuiti e con pari funzionalità, come ad esempio Ubuntu e OpenOffice, secondo i promotori porterebbe un notevole risparmio di spesa per il comune di Casoria, come testimoniato dal servizio di Report su Rai 3 sulla provincia di Bolzano, che ha risparmiato oltre 200.000 euro ogni anno, altro esempio nel sud Italia è l’istituto tecnico Majorana di Gela (CL), che grazie all’adozione del software libero hanno raddoppiato il numero di pc. All’estero Brasile, Francia, Germania, Svizzera hanno quasi totalmente sostituito i loro S.O. proprietari con linux.

We Are Not The 99%; We Are The 100%

We Are Not The 99%; We Are The 100%

It has become an almost mainstream view that it is us, the ninety-nine percent, vs. them, the one percent, and while on the surface that would very much appear to be the case, if we bother to take a closer look at the situation it becomes evident that that is, in fact, not the case.
