@jens @conservancy i feel what comes a bit short in your analysis, is, that the freedom to do as one wishes interacts with the freedom of others and how _they_ wish to do.

@jens @conservancy
to put it into analogy: back in the day when electricity was just discovered, tinkerers could build their contraptions however they wanted. throwing appliances with exposed wires out into the street was not a problem, because no one who was not a professional would have sockets at home to plug them into.

nowadays, putting appliances with exposed wires or fire hazards in places where people might just pick them up, and take them home

@jens @conservancy is rather criminal 🤷‍♀️

stallman's (and many other fsf enthusiasts) mindset is still in the analogous 1800s
