The Conquest Code of Conduct

If you’re tired of SJW COCs in open-source projects, try this one on for size:

Conquest’s Second Law: “Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.”

tl;dr: No Socialism or Social Justice.


All contributions and communication are welcome, so long as they do not (within this project space) espouse, entertain, advocate for, or otherwise positively discuss the political ideals associated with Social Justice, Progressivism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Marxism, or anything else generally reminiscent of any political philosophy to the left of Classical Liberals or Libertarians.

If you suspect or are subjected to criminal behavior within this project space, first notify the appropriate authorities; then, if you wish, you may notify the project owner. The project owner makes no promises in advance regarding accusations or complaints.

The project owner is the final arbiter on all contributions and communication within this project space.

    • Actually, it’s not sarcastic. And for you to think it, it means you’re one of the ones likely to be barred by it. Which, I’ll be honest…it’s probably a good thing.

      Feelings are not a good thing in this space. PERIOD.

      Feelings and worrying about them in any real sense over the technical aspects of things KILL PEOPLE when you get into mission/life-critical software. EVERY TIME.

      Look up Therac-25 and the Challenger Disaster for good examples of why I say this. Politics decided things in both cases and people got KILLED. Spectacularly.
