Submission + - Richard Stallman, philosopher for our generation? (tuxdeluxe.org)

An anonymous reader writes: In the introduction to 'Free Software, Free Society', a collection of Richard Stallman's essays and lectures, published by the GNU press, Lawrence Lessig declares that "Every generation has its philosopher — a writer or artist who captures the imagination of a time. Sometimes these philosophers are recognized as such; often it takes generations before the connection is made real. But recognized or not, a time gets marked by the people who speak its ideals, whether in the whisper of a poem, or the blast of a political movement. Our generation has a philosopher. He is not an artist, or a professional writer. He is a programmer." That philosopher is Stallman. Discuss.
