I agree with your teacher on theoretical grounds, but practical
considerations may hinder you from writing for a totally free
system. This is the old question among activists: Should you adhere to
your virtues completely or change things incrementally by making
compromises? I heard from an old-timer activist that it's best to "do
what you can," because trying to do more, and to be a purist, may
cause you to quit altogether.
