Anything Richard Stallman dreams up, including the claim that "a copyright license is not a contract" is in your credo. Good luck.

History is replete with pseudo Karl Marx's who believed their belief system would free mankind from their conception of tyranny.

Marx offered not as much a belief system as historical predictions
(not as far off the mark as many want to believe, but also not
on-spot: apparently quite a bit of historic inevitability was
evitable) and sort of a call to arms.  It was the job of others to
make a pseudo-belief system from that.  Somewhat ironically, to the
detriment of some of his predictions.

They've all failed dismally. Happy philosophizing.

Well, you can't have both. If you choose to count Stallman among Marxists, obviously they have not "all failed dismally". Free
software is exploding in importance.

Yeah... "exploding in importance". I used to read reports about Linus
Torvald's seminars "World Domination 101" ten years ago.

Same old shit, different decade. LMAO.

And if you choose to not count him among them, what are you yelling
about?

Sincerely,
RJack :)
