If you still think that erasing something from my hard drive (free or
non-free) is not ethical, please explain me how.
I just don't see what this has to do with having debian remove non-free.
Sure, you can remove something from your hard drive. That's not
equivalent to removing packages in unstable which are there because of
someone else's work.
I understand what you are talking about. There are Debain developers who
want Debian to act always ethical, and there are Debian developers who
think it is O.K. to act non-ethical for Debian, for example because of
the work they contribute to non-free.
First group will be disappointed if non-free distribution will be
continued by Debian. Second group will be disappointed if non-free
distribution will not be discontinued.
As you see there is no way to satisfy everyone. That's way Debian has
voting system to satisfy majority.
