I am perfectly aware they are strong words (and sorry if I had to use them)
but if I have differentiate the 2 point of views (between yourself and
Jonas) I am inclined to say I see more compromises and flexibility in
Jonas's side:-)

You kinda reminded me RMS with your article and perhaps that is why I used
those words because I am aware of his views (even discussing between free
software and open source software) and it wasn't difficult for me not to
notice the radicalism in the article. Don't think I didn't read, noticed
the examples you refer to but still...

And again, mine is a point of view, a simple expression and the way how I
can achieve a freedom to ultimate freedom.

To answer your last question, no I definitely don't feel everybody who
lived successful life before computers were extremists. I can't answer for
facebook as I don't have any knowledge nor a profile on that platform. But
forgive my ignorance in this regards (I am slow to understand) I feel like
I didn't catch the hint in your last question.
