tactics must shift with the times. "free software" was a valuable resistance against the commercialization of software as it existed at the time and produced many useful and valuable projects, but now it is simply used as a method of wage evasion for some of the most profitable entities that have ever existed in human history


@dankwraith The Open Source movement's goal was to make "Free Software", with a specific political goal, palatable for business. In doing so they sold the idea that people would spend their free time developing other people's commercial products.

Free Software has never claimed this. We fight for Freedom on the grounds of freedom.
