No, that's not a valid assumption.  They see their own goals met (or met
most closely) by picking this license over the alternatives.  Those
goals certainly need not match the goals or ideology of the license

If you take a look at Richard Stallman's personal side, you'll find a
_lot_ of political goals and views which have found no reflection at all
in either FSF or GPL.
