@kreyren Software freedom is called software freedom because it has nothing to do with any other type of freedom. If you acquire a distribution of free software then the 4 rules must apply to it. Achieving world piece, ending poverty or bending over to your political agenda are not on the list. There are no values on the free software is founded on, there are no founders of free software, it's a global movement based on a simple logical argument against copyright and abuse of IP. The notion that gnu project (even if they wanted to) can in any practical way restrict access to free software it released to any particular individual or group is nonsensical, and the only possible interpretation of it is to make new versions of gnu software entirely proprietary which can only have long term consequences (most likely achieving nothing but to diminish their relevance, in favor of a free software forks that will most definitely appear if such a decision is made).
