A repost of https://maffulli.net/2019/10/17/why-richard-stallman-doesnt-matter/

Too many people have joined the chorus of cacophonous conversations online about booting Richard Stallman from the free software movement. They claim that his social behavior has prevented more people from joining. There are conspiracy theories claiming a hit job by an evil corp. The point that everybody misses is that Stallman’s views on software don’t matter anymore.

A very interesting article about how the views of the FSF and Stallman completely ignore the essential problems in IT and society in current day and age.
