Why is Openness such a Closed Subject?

Interesting thoughts from Adam Heidebrink-Bruno on the purported neutrality as a value base and movement within education. I have heard many times from people in these circles that there is something non-ideological behind openness; of course like any good critic of ideology I would note that this probably involves some level of self-deception (or at least self-censorship). My own view is that the open education movement is at a point where it really needs to engage with its own assumptions about what it stands for: both to set a bulwark against commercial abuse of the language but also to help us orientate, re-orientate, and focus efforts.
