He also puts an incredible quantity of FUD in this article: did you ever hear Kuhn or RMS asking for a law banning non-free licenses?? Shall FSF(x) reply?

I don't think it is worth to reply on all of Eric's articles.

I don't know why but that article somehow reminded me of the New Speak
from Orwell's 1984 (what a coincidence that the GNU project started
just in that year)
