Well, Yes, there have to be some rules, otherwise we
end up in some sort of unproductive anarchic chaos.
Microsoft and Apple produce operating systems that are
conventional (despite the silly advertising films
currently being bandied around by Apple) and they
would be extremely happy if they could force
conformity as well.
There is nothing wrong with conformity as such, as
long as one never loses sight of the fact that
throughout history what has constituted conformity has
repeatedly changed. If everybody became "locked in" to
a rigid, inflexible conformity creativity and new
ideas would be stifled.
My previous message, where I stated:
"All you lovers of liberty and non-conformity,
tis time to move on elsewhere!"
was not addressed to everyone; but to those who prefer
to take some, potentially, creative risks.
sincerely, Richmond Mathewson
