Maximising utility over a set will yield a result at least equal to the
utility from maximising over a constrained subset of the full set. In other
words, we cannot be worse off by allowing non-free in. 

Everybody not wearing your politically tainted glasses clearly sees the
higher utility from being able to use non-free, if so desired. If our users
don't want it, they don't use it. That ease. It's about choice, not
totalitarian prescription.  

If you want a "politically correct" subset of Debian, go ahead and fork. 

According to the latest figures, 43% of all statistics are totally worthless.
