@astheroth Free software is inherently a political movement. If you removed politics from it, it would cease to exist. The four principles are a political statement.
@tootapp Nah, it's a technical principle. For that reason the definition of freedom on free software given by Stalmann is descriptive -presenting observations about the characteristics of someone or something- and not philosophical. It just quotes the requirements which should be accomplished by software to be considered *libre*. It doesn't imply any axiological matters or deontological things. The four freedoms are just the rules as any rule one could create on the normal set theory.
