In this case, I'd place Stefaan right just before Terekov.

Terekov seems determined to undermine the idea of all users being Free.
The FSF tries to empower all users with Freedom.

If empowering with Freedom is as far from the truth as Terekov in such a
scale, then you're just plain presumptuous.

There's not a requirement for a middle ground at everything.
