If it's any comfort, I don't understand most of your post either.
You seem to draw parallels between removing firmware blobs from the linux kernel and faith/ideology. I don't see the correspondence between those, since I'm not really a religious person, so it's difficult for me to correlate them in a meaningful way.
Fortunately you also write
>There are damn good rational [reasons] for "why source for firmware is generally a desirable thing"
If you could present those, that could be very useful.
