I have to disagree with you here.  Although this discussion is between
only a few people, it is relevant and important to Fedora.  The
question of where Fedora stands with respect to the inclusion of
unfree software is of key importance; indeed, I might be convinced
that nothing is more important.  Unlike discussion of particular
packages and particular technical issues, this affects everyone and
goes to the core of why I'm here, and why Fedora is worth the effort.

I agree that analogies with guns and death don't help anyone, though.
