Free Software's Syllogism

Here's a nice logic:

To maximise the freedom you can derive from free software, you need to be a programmer

To be a programmer, you need to learn how to program

Therefore, to maximise your freedom, you need to learn how to program

Ergo, the article argues, everybody should be taught how to program.
