Why do people care about software freedom and not care about freedom in real life.
What is the point in making software free if its going to be used to make society less free. Which is what has happened, corporations use software freedom to leaverage their non-software power over society.
I dont think everyone forsaw that.
And yes i agree people dont have to use the GPL, but as long as people believe in Freedom 0 there is no hope of people who more deeply care about freedom from COLLABORATING ON SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, which is what its uspposed to be all about.
I like the idea of snowdrift, which is what the story is about, but it still demands all software treat corporations as equals to people.
