I didn't know the FSF was a dictatorship. I thought the GPL was supposed to 
empower programmers to have more control over their own decisions instead of 
being ruled by some authority.

There is no conflict between the licenses, the only conflict is rhetoric and 
political BS which I haven't seen since the soviet union and it's propaganda 

The LGPL doesn't say "do whatever RMS commands".

Gee, I'm glad I haven't been assimilated. I prefer having a free will. Gosh, 
what would happen if RMS died? Nobody could tell you when to pee and you would 

In all honesty your answer has been the least evasive and most honest one. All 
your base belongs to RMS.

(no wonder he's on an ego trip)

I've read the APSL and it's BS.

Have you READ the APSL? It's brutally clear.
