actually, it mostly seems to be a diatribe on (a) RMS's definition of
free software and (b) ESR's perspectives on gun rights. he has a
couple interesting but certainly not new things to say about RMS's
views, some rather bald statements on the topics of ethics in general,
some more rather bald statements about economics in general, and lots
of vitriol about guns.

bondage-and-discipline ethics to go with a b&d language.
