god, why do people keep trying to inject politics into my community defined solely by its radical response to encroaching intellectual property law
@eevee (See also: "hacking has never been political!")
@eevee because they benefit from polarizing others.
@Wolf480pl Jones definitely benefit from being explained, so:
A radical response to encroaching IP law is inherently political. It's a response to changes in law and society that is intended to disrupt emerging norms and protect people's rights as users and creators. It's been entirely political from the beginning!
A further discussion of what to do when further rights collide and how to resolve inherent conflicts in rights is therefore not really off topic.
@eevee This gets me every time. I’ve read at least a few comments complaining about politics in Emacs… Emacs, the editor written solely for the purpose of furthering a political agenda.
