Although it is probably worth checking with the authors in any
case, you might note that the GPL says, "If the Program does not
specify a version number of the GNU General Public License, you
may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
Foundation."  This sentence is in GPL versions 1, 2, and 3.

 but to keep the structure of society intact."
