Missed this one.

So, when John says the following:

He is talking about his own future, modified version of the Social Contract?
And anyone who doesn't adhere to that is pro-proprietary?

What John seems to be claiming is that Sections 1 and 5 in the current
Social Contract conflict with each other.  The people who are arguing with
him see it differently.  That doesn't make them pro-proprietary.
