``The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made
common cause to create a free operating system.''

If you want to do the whole political furour thing, they're plenty of
organisations to do it via: the FSF, the EFF, SPI, OSI, LI, your local
LUG, and so on. 

It's a good property for Debian to be somewhere you can go to just hack
on something cool, without having to be worried about the latest scandal
that's rocking the free world.
