if you want to see how much the ideology of liberalism has poisoned software development just post about a license that forbids privately owned enterprises from using the software and watch people crawl in your menchies to cry about how "entrepreneurs" wont be able to use it


It would be consequentially liberal to acinowledge that if the creator can restrict the use of software to those who pay for it, they should also be allowed to restrict it to companies who would make money from it.
One of the instances where it shows that neoliberals aren't actually that liberal. Their ideology is "you must get rich by any means", and if someone behaves like they don't, it's a violation of their worldview.

@Mr_Teatime its even more strange than that, since the license i mentioned doesnt completely forbid private commercial use, it only forbids private commercial use without an explicit agreement between the licenser/licensee. so really their ideology is that the commons is only valuable as far as it is profitable to the bourgeoisie, and it doesnt matter if the original creator of the work never benefits. its absolutely psychopathic
