The Wikimedia Foundation

From Libertarian Wiki

The Wikimedia Foundation maintains several projects that aim to produce universally accessible sources of information, which are compiled and edited by the general public. They also develop the software that aids in this task, called "MediaWiki" (which runs this website). It is part of the Free Software Movement. This organization furthers the libertarian cause in several ways:

  1. It provides public goods and encourages voluntary contributions to the public good, creating a vibrant culture of non-coerced philanthropy.
  2. It promotes a citizen-centered media system, which prevents the concentration of power. This is one of the tools that libertarians can use to circumvent the establishment media which favors establishment politicians and pro-state attitudes.
  3. Any successful projects will provides a strong example of a community of free and equal individuals organizing itself to achieve a shared goal.
