that is a load of pretentious, presumptuous shit, "mrblog," and nobody
involved with the creation of the GPL is qualified to judge the needs
of "all users & devs, present and future."

the GPL is a strings-attached license, and is less than completely
free. your appeal to vague authority is not relevant. only an idiot
compares a software license to slavery.
