Free Software: The freedom to run the program means the freedom for any kind of person or organization to use it on any kind of computer system, for any kind of overall job and purpose, without being required to communicate about it with the developer or any other specific entity. In this freedom, it is the USER’S PURPOSE that matters, not the developer’s purpose; you as a user are free to run a program for your purposes, and if you distribute it to someone else, she is then free to run it for her purposes, but you are not entitled to impose your purposes on her.
i believe this is connected to other “wars against choice” we face today, such as this outline by Joel Mariano;
Currently in the US, laws like the S510 Bill, propose to regulate the growing of your own food at home under the control of Homeland Security for “safer food handling.” I bet Monsanto is probably “chomping at the bit” with probable implanted executive employees in Homeland Security (Cheney & the Petroleum Industry precedent…) to declare the growing of food at home as a “security threat,” so everybody will have to purchase food only from the Big Agricultural Industry–increasing profits for Monsanto.
Big Agriculture uses only 2% of the US population to grow and distribute food by using 70% of the petroleum, while also using 80-90% of the average municipality’s water supply (due to Monsanto’s petrochemical desertification of soil). The control of people is more than debt here, this is our very survival. This is not the healthiest or most nutritional option, and in fact provides a questionably toxic system for both the body and environment with commodification of Illness for Health Care & Big Pharma Systems predicated on multinational corporate totalitarian profit.
With the status quo centralized system ignorantly rooted on petroleum, this bases all interest to acquire petroleum as a resource–increasing more wars–especially in petroleum-rich Middle East. If the masses go self-sufficient, the allocation of just 10% of US farmlands for Hemp, can provide enough biofuels for the whole country (hence being against the law lumped in with marijuana) to not ever have to rely on petroleum again.
It’s obvious the majority can take back the country peacefully by becoming self-sufficient–something that was expected when this country began–Inalienable Rights our great grandparents had. The multinational corporate totalitarians know this control is what’s at risk.
The majority can suddenly stop believing in the currency, grow their own food, cultivate only their local economies & resources. This would be a huge profit loss for the centrally based petroleum system under the control of multinational corporate totalitarians and banksters. The majority unknowingly has this power. And it only takes 5% of the population to stand down martial law.
If a disaster happens to the masses, the 10-20% of the elites who control 85-90% of the money in the US can instantly loose wealth if the masses wake up and become self-reliant. By getting rid of rights that have to do with water & food, they sneak in the power to totally enslave people–which is an increase over the Fractional Reserve Banking System currently doing voluntary debt-slaving of the masses through the credit-based corporate system. Fiat money, not based on a physical worth like gold or petroleum, has no value but the the beliefs of the masses that support it–set by a privately-owned for-profit cartel of multinational banks.
