But it is still possible write an "original" article about
Libre Software. I can explain it in italian, using my own words; who
wants to know more, is free to read the original RMS's points of view.

I think that it's a different situation.
However, how can we be sure that what is written in the Bible is
totally true? We can't.
For instance, we have not a "paper" made by Jesus, but we can only read what 
wrote about him. So, it's not the same problem that we have here.
And Bible isn't a political essay.

Yes, but we all know that misrepresenting someone's point of view is
the easier way to damage him.
