Americans (along with everybody else) don't care about their freedoms.

Libre can be directly translated from Spanish to mean free. So a word in English does exist.
>>
>>63317924
Those Venezuelan commies fried his brain.
>>
>>63318116
freedom is what you practice with liberty. you liberate from the rule of other men to practice freedom
>>
Why do they call it a free market when not everything's free?
>>
>>63322233
free enterprise well its taxed and there are regulations and you can't do some illegal things but somehow western capitalism is free market.
>>
>>63317939
but free is and it means the same.
example: you are now a free person.
>>
>>63324722
He says free doesn't work because it can be mistaken by free as in no cost.
>>
>>63317924
there is a word it just has a second meaning. I will never understand why this guy is so obsessed with semantic autism.
>>
freed software
>>
>>63317939
lol other options:
>liberal software
>libertarian software
>software at liberty
>>
>>63317954
Most americans have a very twisted definition of freedom
>>
>>63317924

Why not call it socialist software?> > [spoiler][/spoiler]
>>
>>63328196
"liberty (thing)" is a common way to phrase things in the retarded English language.

Alright listen, in the english language Free mean two things.

1) Free beer
2) Free to go

Which mean they where trying to found a word that was able to be different then the word "Free" and mean the same thing. In french you call the same two thing i type before like this.

1) Une bière gratuite.
2) LIBRE de partir.

Libre in french mean free in english and so they found a word that was different and mean the exact same shit.
>>
How come he choosed a Mexican word instead of a Latin or Greek one? I reckon that would've been a better choice.
>>
>>63328974
Libre is liber in Latin. It's basically the same word anyway.
>>
>>63322233
checked
>>
>>63328167
>liberal
>libertarian
fuck off
>>
>>63317924
>the current state of english
>>
>>63317924
more like libtards
>>
Open
>>
>>63328191
Yeah, adopting free software by simply installing for free doesn't sound very liberty. Nothing to bomb or kill first.
>>
>>63328974
Libre is french, rms talks french. In France we talk about ''logiciels libres'' and ''logiciels open-source'' (you can see the code, but not necessarily free)
>>
>>63328234
better yet: Liberated software
>>
>>63322267
>somehow western capitalism is free market
no it's not. Some places are more free than others but there's always tariffs and shit at some point
>>
>>63330155
libre is also spanish, just sayin
>>
>>63330632
We share a lot of words, some with very few differences like "o" or "a"
>>
>>63317954
This is actually not a bad idea. And advertise it like on the redneck radio in GTA.
>>
>>63317924
In danish, free as in freedom is fri, which is almost pronounced the same. Free as in no cost is called gratis.
I don't know why you people started to use free as in no cost.
>>
>>63330798
It's funny in French we say gratis too sometimes for no cost I didn't know
>>
>>63330798
>>63330854
Spanish has the word "Gratis" for free as in beer too, and so do Italians.
>>
>>63318116
Normans
>>
>>63330798
At least we're using our own word latin cuck
>>
>>63317924
Liberated.
>>
>>63331183
Oh ok
>>
>>63328000
it would suggest that this particular software wasn't free in the past
>>
>>63330798
>>63330854
that's why when rms talks about it he talks about it being free as in libre not free as in gratis
