Most of what I've posted to Github was a snip of example code that I needed to share with exactly one person. The only real project I have there was AGPL, and it's an enormous piece of work. By project, I'm 5% open licensed. By lines-of-code, it's more like 99%.

Unfortunately, looking at how the FBI abused its powers decades ago....

Decades ago? You apparently haven't been following the sad story of the FBI and anti-globalization protestors in the 1990s, anti-war protestors in the 2000s, and Occupy activists in the 2010s.
