Does this therefore not indicate that a long term sustainable GPL

The globalvillages way is to allow people with different value systems to
physically segregate; Those who are active contributors might want to get
to a more "work-oriented" socio-cultural and physical circumstance, while
those who have different values might create their own circumstance. That
is my "kings road" to avoid coercion. In my vision of the GPL society we
will have a minimum of common societal values globally; just enough to let
everybody be happy in their own fashion.

But dont forget: If there were no Luddites challenging technology maybe we
would fall easier in traps. Even absolutists, even if they do not
contribute to human progress, might have important messages for us. Just
make sure they are not "absolute absolutists" looking for coercion on you.
And try yourself to avoid the danger of becoming one.
