Richard Matthew Stallman – haker i jeden z twórców ruchu wolnego oprogramowania, założyciel projektu GNU oraz, z inspiracji Richarda Greenblatta, Free Software Foundation, współtwórca licencji GNU GPL, jeden z twórców wielu kluczowych programów takich jak edytor Emacs, kompilator GCC czy debuger GDB. Ustalił ramy moralne dla swojej wizji ruchu wolnego oprogramowania, jako alternatywy dla programów o zamkniętym kodzie.

„Będziecie walczyć o wolność? Odrzucicie Windows i Mac OS i przejdziecie na GNU/Linux? Czy będziecie zbyt leniwi, by stawić opór?“

„Największe zagrożenie dla praw człowieka w dzisiejszej dobie stanowią rządy, które służą korporacjom. To są satrapie na usługach megakorporacji.“

„As one person put it, "Open source is a development methodology; free software is a social movement."“

— Richard Stallman
Context: While free software by any other name would give you the same freedom, it makes a big difference which name we use: different words convey different ideas. In 1998, some of the people in the free software community began using the term "open source software" instead of "free software" to describe what they do. The term "open source" quickly became associated with a different approach, a different philosophy, different values, and even a different criterion for which licenses are acceptable. The Free Software movement and the Open Source movement are today separate movements with different views and goals, although we can and do work together on some practical projects. The fundamental difference between the two movements is in their values, their ways of looking at the world. For the Open Source movement, the issue of whether software should be open source is a practical question, not an ethical one. As one person put it, "Open source is a development methodology; free software is a social movement." For the Open Source movement, non-free software is a suboptimal solution. For the Free Software movement, non-free software is a social problem and free software is the solution.

„Standing up to an evil system is exhilarating, and now I have a taste for it.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: If in my lifetime the problem of non-free software is solved, I could perhaps relax and write software again. But I might instead try to help deal with the world's larger problems. Standing up to an evil system is exhilarating, and now I have a taste for it.

„Freedom and community are important.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: Freedom and community are important. Gratis software is not worth such an effort, because price is usually not an ethical issue. Paying isn’t wrong, and being paid isn’t wrong. Trampling other people’s freedom and community is wrong, so the free software movement aims to put an end to it, at least in the area of software.

„The War on Drugs has continued for some 20 years, and we see little prospect of peace, despite the fact that it has totally failed and given the US an imprisonment rate almost equal to Russia.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: The War on Drugs has continued for some 20 years, and we see little prospect of peace, despite the fact that it has totally failed and given the US an imprisonment rate almost equal to Russia. I fear that the War on Copying could go on for decades as well. To end it, we will need to rethink the copyright system, based on the Constitution's view that it is meant to benefit the public, not the copyright owners. Today, one of the benefits the public wants is the use of computers to share copies.

„What they had in common was mainly love of excellence and programming.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: What they had in common was mainly love of excellence and programming. They wanted to make their programs that they used be as good as they could. They also wanted to make them do neat things. They wanted to be able to do something in a more exciting way than anyone believed possible and show "Look how wonderful this is. I bet you didn't believe this could be done." Interview in Hackers — Wizards of the Electronic Age (1985)

„Medical marijuana grower and activist [http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle-old/396/steveremembered.shtml Steve McWilliams killed himself] last June, rather than face 6 months in prison with no marijuana to relieve his chronic pain.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: Medical marijuana grower and activist [http://stopthedrugwar. org/chronicle-old/396/steveremembered. shtml Steve McWilliams killed himself] last June, rather than face 6 months in prison with no marijuana to relieve his chronic pain. If you are ever in a situation like this, don't kill yourself in private. Make your death itself be a blow against the tyrant. Plead innocent; then kill yourself in the courtroom, with the jury and journalists watching, after defying the judge by shouting, "I'm a medical marijuana grower. You were going to make those 12 honest citizens your tools for evil, but I will save them from you. May my death be on your conscience for as long as you live."

„I've always lived cheaply. I live like a student, basically. And I like that, because it means that money is not telling me what to do. I can do what I think is important for me to do. It freed me to do what seemed worth doing.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: !-- I was getting 8 to 10 orders [for tapes of Emacs] a month. And, if necessary, I could have lived on just that, because --> I've always lived cheaply. I live like a student, basically. And I like that, because it means that money is not telling me what to do. I can do what I think is important for me to do. It freed me to do what seemed worth doing. So make a real effort to avoid getting sucked into all the expensive lifestyle habits of typical Americans. Because if you do that, then people with the money will dictate what you do with your life. You won't be able to do what's really important to you.<!-- line 422

„Isn't it ironic that the proprietary software developers call us communists? We are the ones who have provided for a free market, where they allow only monopoly.“

— Richard Stallman
Context: Isn't it ironic that the proprietary software developers call us communists? We are the ones who have provided for a free market, where they allow only monopoly. … if the users chooses this proprietary software package, he then falls into this monopoly for support … the only way to escape from monopoly is to escape from proprietary software, and that is what the free software movement is all about. We want you to escape and our work is to help you escape. We hope you will escape to the free world. The free world is the new continent in cyberspace that we have built so we can live here in freedom. It's impossible to live in freedom in the old world of cyberspace, where every program has its feudal lord that bullies and mistreats the users. So, to live in freedom we have to build a new continent. Because this is a virtual continent, it has room for everyone, and there are no immigration restrictions. And because there were never indigenous peoples in cyberspace, there is also no issue of taking away their land. So everyone is welcome in the free world, come to the free world, live with us in freedom. The free software movement aims for the liberation of cyberspace and everyone in it. “Free Software in Ethics and Practice” talk at CMC MSU, Moscow, Russia, (3 March 2008) [http://phobos.cs.msu.su/FTP/Stallman/rms-cmc.txt Text] · [http://sbos.in/RMS_Lection.ogg ogg file] · [http://youtube.com/watch?v=GrJpXJY4Oow YouTube]
