Plato's Self Help

"One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being ruled by your inferiors." Plato (Republic, Book I, 347c) Plato's quote is applicable to free software. The penalty for refusing to use Linux, is you end up being ruled by the chains built into Microsoft's inferior proprietary products. Plato's quote implies self help and self reliance.
