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 firstdonoharm.dev/version/1/1/

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.

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

@jalcine

@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
