https://github.com/palantir/tslint/issues/4132 We need a new generation of open source licenses, and updates to existing ones, that stipulate specific ethical use cases - such as the kind of ethnic cleansing ICE is doing with Palantir's help - that are beyond the pale and invalidate the right to use.
