I know. I wanted to change perspective to an issue with a more complex
answer. Freedom, by nature appears to defy pinning down, as one person's
freedom so often turns out to be anothers' limitation. Freedom to earn a
living, freedom to defend one's self and one's way of life even freedom
of expression can all get rather tricky. Free software is no different.
It's easy to be moralistic and idealistic but to change a culture you
have to at least understand it if not be part of it. Controlling it via
rules and regulations requires a vast bureaucracy to administrate it,
which does little for personal freedoms. Round and round in circles,
please don't take it personally if I shut up on this subject now. ;)
