the fact that free market people aren't immediately threatened by free/open source software anymore isn't a good thing

trying to make free software a thing in a system of capitalist contract law was never going to succeed. Free/liberation software is software that liberates people. its contract law license doesn't matter much. Tools have values, and you get to decide what values you code in.

Follow

so, write software that has values that are incompatible with capitalism. That is way more "free" than slapping a license on it and then collecting money from tech companies who use it to prop up their global surveillance network.
