@bkuhn so by 'politically oppose' you just mean make statements for the record and you don't believe this will have any effect on abolishing software patents. As to future generations, volumes of objections to patents were recorded in the 1800s, almost totally forgotten. Sounds dismal. I'd work in some other field if I were you. IMO the beauty of free software is that it is not merely recording an objection, but blazing a different path.

Your claim that free software had a better chance when companies ignored it is extraordinary. A better chance at what? I urge you to spell this theory out.
