I think RMS's personal and multi-dimensional shittiness has frozen the idea of Free Software in place for many, many years. What can it become if what he values and wants aren’t the defining principles?
@audrey the four freedoms guarantee personal, individual freedom
but they do in no way guarantee justice, either individual, or communal
how true this is, we see with open source:
the company which holds the copyright enjoys all the "individual" freedoms, and the community… enjoys contributing, i guess?
