Stallman spoke at my school recently, wasn't really too enlightening (I've heard it before), but nice to meet one of the great philosophers of our time. He didn't seem too interested in having a discussion after his talk, though. The talk was about copyright (and the abolition thereof), and one space in which he was in favor of complete abolishment of copyright was for source code. I asked then how the GPL copyleft mechanism could still hold if the original owner had no control over the copying, and he didn't really have an answer...

A lot of anti-regulation positions have the same problem. Reminds me of the Ron Paul Candidates@Google video, where his answer was basically "Uhhhh..." to questions like "How can we approach international concerns like global warming in the absence of federal programs?"

I like the ideal of complete personal freedom, but it has some severe drawbacks.
