Talking more about Freedom not Less

I don’t like the term “Open Source”, because it does not refer to freedom. When a computer program is labeled as “Free” (or “Free to Play” in the case of games) we have
the same problem that “Free” often means a price of zero. By contrast games such “Tanks of Freedom” and “Freedom Saber” really respect users freedom. So I try to avoid using free
as an adjective, and use the term “Freedom” instead: Instead of saying that something is “Free Software”, I say it respects the users freedom.
