Open source is intended to be a synonym for "free software" that
attempts to avoid speaking about the ethical reasons that drive many
of us like to develop free software, just like "nigger" is intended to
be a synonym for "African American" that attempts or attempted to deny
the humanity of the people it was referring to.
Synonyms do not always carry the same intentions.
