i think the problem with a software ethics license is believing you can stop an unethical government with ethical law enforcement

it will be good to see what comes out of it wrt defining community ethics, but it's VERY distracting seeing people center ethical licensing as a solution.

@wilkie I think that's the problem with ethical licenses across all the uses, but I *do* feel like at least it's acknowledging there's a problem even if it isn't enforceable.

@wilkie The disparity in mobility between an unethical (or even illegal) actor and transparent, democratic, ethical law enforcement is manifest in so many ways. For example, the entire offshore finance system.
