Meaning of freedom

Freedom means many things to different people.

For some, it means the ability to live according to one’s own will. It means not having to bend one’s will to that of another person or entity.

When it comes to software, free software refers to software which promotes user freedom to share, study and modify it. It may not necessarily be free, as in zero cost.

It is both the sine qua non and the result of any functional decentralized democracy.
