I’ve heard some rather specious arguments defending the GPL and it’s followers. But this one over at Joel’s message board takes them to an entirely new low. The gist of his argument is that the GPL is Marxist and this is a good thing.

My favorite part? It is where he claims he supports the GPL and Free Software Foundation “because essentially, they proved that a socialist society is possible”.

Yet more proof that if geeks ran the world we would be dead in a week.

UPDATE: Sorry, wrong URL there. This is the correct one.
