Open source as a societal model?

“Open source works like an well balanced ecosystem, because only the things of which enough people think they are necessary will eventually be brought into existance.
The idea of capitalism is quite a bit more aggressive: Companies try to discover, appropriate and exploit new territories so that they can make money with them before others do that (e.g. Apple’s iPad).
This movement is always transgression, but what modern societies need is finding a balance to their environment in order to not destroy themselves”.
