Who opposes and is scared of RMS? Those who want Open Source, not software libre.

I support gun control law. We should control how many guns government owns.

uspol, censorship 

but tbh all the conservatives moaning about private corporations censoring them are the SAME conservatives who made the whole "i don't want to bake a gay cake for homosexuals" crowd. make up your mind and decide whether or not businesses are allowed to discriminate

Some thoughts on licencing.

Most emulator projects use the #GPL license because their projects are community driven.

You can tell when a project has a company focus in mind by looking at the license.

If the license is a permissive one, like the #BSD or the #MIT, they aim to be taken by a company, so they want to give them as few responsibilities as possible.

When a project is a GPL one, what the project wants to do is to protect the members work by forcing companies to return the code.

Changed my email from Riseup to GNU everywhere I could. Gonna move away from every organization that doesn't value truth over popularity.

copyrights, including those used to enforce free software licenses, are inherently violent because they ultimately depend on state violence (a cop with a gun) or threat of same to enforce them. without an armed pig, copyrights are just fairytales told by congress to media companies.

I feel I should repeat this. If defending truth leads to end of my online life, I'll proudly kill it with my own hands. Truth is more important than anything.

Apparently a Mastodon server is banning people for supporting Richard Stallman.

A great help to RMS is becoming an associate member of FSF. Please join FSF today.

More than 8 thousand people have read my post about defending truth and RMS. Hope this does something for us to defend truth.
