I've no idea if it's fine for main,[1] but it's clearly DFSG Free.

Whether a work is DFSG Free is a separate question from whether we
should actually distribute a work.

of maintaining such a thing.
A people living under the perpetual menace of war and invasion is very
easy to govern. It demands no social reforms. It does not haggle over
expenditures on armaments and military equipment. It pays without
discussion, it ruins itself, and that is an excellent thing for the
syndicates of financiers and manufacturers for whom patriotic terrors
are an abundant source of gain.
