Ah, looking at the sparse and indelicate correspondence here, I guess this is
where all the crazies go to shout into the ether.

*Gratis* and *libre* are the best things to have happened to software since
Multics.  But why emplace them to the exclusion of non-gratis and non-libre

Can RMS accept into his moral universe nonfree's "right to exist"?
And if so, can cooperating with nonfree be as morally permissible as say,
supporting public schools while sending one's own kids to private, or
supporting climate activism while occasionally chartering a Gulfstream?

If RMS can reconcile this, then all his parishioners will follow, and there's
no telling how far GNU can fly.
