@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 Moreover. What happens if we look a bit? Could one say that the bsd developers make any kind of political manifesto? Nope. Their license have more freedoms -or lesser restrictions- than the gpl. If the FSF would never be a thing, the BSD guys would reach the same freedom on software as we have today. The GPL is a legal weapon to preserve the freedom on the software no more, no less.
If you wish to fight the *alt right* go and vote on your country, or be politician, but for sure, the software is not the called one to change any election or making political campaings by default.
