I think that every action is political and non-neutral.  The only way
something can be non-political and neutral is that it is accepted by all
involved parties.  Taking a neutral position otherwise is favouring the
most powerful party.  So it is also partisian, non-neutral and
political.  Advocating free software is political and partisian
(non-neutral) because it decides based on policies and favours one party
(free software distributors) over others (non-free software
distributors).  Deciding not to criticize China or to block Nazi
propaganda are both equally political and definitively partisian.
