It's Not A Game

You raise a very important issue since there is a real possibility
that, in the future, the entertainment console will serve as the
family computer for many households around the world.  It would be a
shame if Squeak cannot be made available to millions (if not billions)
of people due to DRM.

But what concrete actions can be taken to protect against this
possibility?  One can always expend the effort to educate one's circle
of acquaintances about the societal dangers inherent in this
techno-legal bid for control of computational media, and urge them to
vote for a non-Republicrat who understands what is at stake.  Beyond
that, I don't see any course of action for Squeakers other than to
keep on Squeakin'.
