"Nature. Essence. Innate. The way things are. This kind of rhetoric should
raise suspicions in any context. It should especially raise suspicion here. If
there is any place where nature has no rule, it is in #cyberspace. If there is any

I'd like to start a parallel campaign reaching out directly to academic departments—we should identify those departments with some kind of interest or commitment to worker coops or alternative economics?

If you don't want cops or military using your open / sharealike software and you actually mean it, then consider Ethical Open Source (EOS) licensing options which are analogous to your project's current licensing scheme.
