Re: There was never a chance of a "GFDL compromise"

      While superficially
    ironic, this is in fact quite fundamental:  you cannot truly build a
    free society without granting its participants the freedom to reject
    the very notion of freedom itself.

The idea that people should be "free to reject freedom" is a
fundamental philosophical mistake--the same mistake that the BSD
developers use to argue against the GNU GPL.

There is little I can say to people whose views are so remote from
mine, and whose conditions for cooperation are unacceptable.  So I've
concluded there is no point in my discussing these issues further
here.  Henceforth I will no longer post on debian-legal except to
correct false statements about me or the GNU Project or the FSF.
