Most People don't get the point about "what do you mean with free" because normally they associate with "no charge" or "worthless". Software's freedom is an incredible technology, but if both are "no charge by default" at least, what's there being not ethical if not GPL licensed or even all the source-code is open? There's something to control the computer from other place? What's really happening at nonfree software or firmware that does it so nasty? Could it to put a person in a state of lacking freedom in the personal life? Freedom is not having your life affected by big brother computing? People don't understand at all, don't even trust in this history and doubt it happens. They even don't believe in it and unfortunately are not being educated to be free as in freedom. When Snowden said at world this happens, what media did was to put people ridiculing his advice and to laugh.

We have a simple way of looking at these two versions.  The free
version is free software, so it is ethical.  The nonfree version is
nonfree software, so it is not ethical.
