or a touch of both ?


Everywhere he looks, says Stallman, he sees corporations and centralized authority trumping or co-opting basic liberties. The FSF is just another front in that war.

"It's part of the general importance of freedom and human rights. What's generally going on in the world today is that freedom is being taken away."

As such, Stallman refuses to travel on Amtrak, because he chafes at being asked for an ID. "It's an injustice to forbid people to travel anonymously." (He can't boycott airplanes — impossible for the globe-trotting public face of free software — but does take the bus whenever he can.)

He says he doesn't own a cell phone or do much Web browsing because he doesn't want anyone to know where he is or what he's reading about. "Cell phones," he says, "are tracking-and-surveillance devices." When surfing the Net, he warns, "if you use Google, you should not identify yourself — don't log in."

God was drunk when he made me, but that's OK 'cause I forgive him.
