I don't want the flyer to talk about any philosophy at all. There are
people at the stall who can explain the philosophy in simple and easy
terms. Let people actually use some free software & play around with it.
This gets people interested enough to look things up further :) 
There is one more "mass" appeal flyer which talks about benefits of
FOSS. 

Let people come to PLUG meetings / start discussion on mailing list. Or
visit the GNU, FSF site. People will then  be in a position to
understand finer nuances of FOSS.
