The more I think about stuff, the more I'm inclined to think fuck open source and attempt to optimize for ethically free software


@jalcine there is this license

It just refers to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights to do the lifting. It is otherwise a permissive license.

I am on the fence generally, don't like that it is permissive, it might create big gray areas.. I don't think the declaration is designed for this.. Also don't know how the limited liability part affects the human rights part.

Using software licenses to stop evil is not the answer though.


@jasper I've seen that - I'd want something that allows me to explicitly provide access to people versus waiting for them to do wrong. Also the UN has done very little to prevent or intercede in a lot of active genocidal harm right now so they aren't my beacon of hope lol
