I see with pain in my heart that the GPLv3 doesn't actually give the

You missed an important philosophical point.  In Richard Stallman's world view,
it isn't the user's freedoms that matter, it's the *software*s freedom.

I don't think it is that bad - the intent is for the software to be freely available for *people* to use. It is actually about our freedom.
