Well, I and others have been spending all our energy to realize
beautiful utopias, until we reached a point where we needed to buy
shoes, or be attended at a hospital. Approval economy works for a
while, then it doesn't anymore. I really wish it would work, and I'm
doing whatever I can for it to work in general, but the painful truth is
that people are stuck in the murky trade economy, and that's not utopia,
but day-to-day struggle with the unfortunate reality.
You could say: right, then just stop contributing to the project and do
something else, and someone else will take your place. But this is not
that simple. When you're on a job that allows you to work for free,
you're not really working for free: you're getting paid to contribute.
If you don't have a job, then you have to generate income somehow.
That's a job. I really appreciate your attachment to keeping money out
of the picture, but I'd like you to share the part of the picture where
you do not use money.
Regarding being sponsored by the GNU project or the FSF, guess what,
that's receiving donations because right now, the FSF is running a
fundraising campaign with a goal of USD 525,000. If that is not money,
please tell me what I missed. Your position seems more and more
