And this is exactly what FSF is doing today: abandon the original
philosophical (political, ideological) approach, to focus on purely legal
and technical aspects, and on internal struggles behind which there are
the interests of corporation that finance developers and projects the
whose only interest is for profit ...

Instead I would like the exact opposite: that FSF was essentially
concentrated on the social and political aspects related to digital
software and technologies in general, at a much higher and broad level of
the defense of 4 poor legal rights that very little importance have with
freedom and (more importantly) equality among people.

Mainly (but not only) for these reasons, after so many years since 2009,
I don't think I will still be a member of FSF.
