I wish I knew why you think it's evil for Debian to distribute non-free.

You've stated that it's an ethical issue for you.  You've drawn an analogy
with illegal drugs.  You've stated that it's not good for Debian's
developers or users [regardless of any good that the software does,
and regardless of any freeness in that software].

But your arguments seem to be circular -- without basis.

Let's assume that your difficulty in presenting your views is in
translation.  Can you enlist the assistance of someone else, to help
you translate?
