FSF is not overseeing GNU project, it is supporting it.

Richard Stallman is person who could "ratify" it, and social contract
is not necessary for GNU, that was already discussed and resolved so
far I know, multiple times on this list.

Tell me if I am wrong.

I am surprised that you and few other people forcefully wish to impose
something that is not necessary and that was said not to be necessary,
and behind the back of Richard Stallman, head of the GNU project.

Finally, your writings pretend to speak as officially authorized by
GNU project, which it is not, and then again, tell me if I am wrong.

In any company business, one would have to have legal authorization to
speak on behalf any entity or group or person.

Did you get any authorization by RMS for those writings of you?
