Criticism: Germ form thesis

Exists inside and outside of the project

  • Free Software is useful for capital

    Only for some sections; more important: useful for non-capital

    Points beyond capital structurally nonetheless

  • Free Software is financed by the value system

    Every germ form is in the beginning embedded in the old

  • Immaterial production is fundamentally different

    Yes; important is what is dominant

  • Just nerds in patriarchal structures

    After all nobody can exclude women formally

    Interesting question: Why do women don't want to self-unfold in this Free Software?

  • Free Software works in a meritocratic way

    There are no means of force in Free Software, so power has no substance

  • Assessment of the germ form questionable


Everyone may make up his/her mind
