O padre jesuíta Antonio Spadaro escreveu um texto que sairia na próxima edição revista cristã Civilta Cattolica e foi vetado pelo vaticano. Nele, Spadaro compara a filosofia hacker com a filosofia cristã:
Hacker philosophy is playful but committed, encourages creativity and sharing, and opposes models of control, competition and private property, Spadaro observed approvingly.
“To create the biggest collaborative encyclopedia of Internet it is estimated that it took around 100 million hours of intellectual work, which is the equivalent of the time the citizens of the United States spend watching advertising on TV in a single weekend,” Spadaro wrote.
Isso, claro, me lembrou o livro-cobiça do Eagleton “Reason, Faith & Revolution“, onde o autor (queridão) fala sobre como vê em Jesus um modelo de revolucionário:
Jesus, unlike most responsible American citizens, appears to do no work, and is accused of being a glutton and a drunkard. He is presented as homeless, propertyless, celibate, peripatetic, socially marginal, disdainful of kinsfolk, without a trade, a friend of outcasts and pariahs, averse to material possessions, without fear for his own safety, careless about purity regulations, critical of traditional authority, a thorn in the side of the establishment, and a scourge of the rich and powerful. Though he was no revolutionary in the modern sense of the term, he has something of the lifestyle of one. He sounds like a cross between a hippie and a guerilla fighter.
