Maybe I am missing arguments but why is software used by goverments not open source? It is literally funded by the public.
It would also help finding security leaks and benefit everyone in general.

PSA:

If you come across a post looking for recommendations for applications/extensions/whatever and you dislike or disagree with one of the options presented:

Please offer an explanation and information as to why you don't like it and/or don't trust it.

Sharing factual information about that piece of software not being good is much more helpful than a cheap quip about how "that app is bad and you should feel bad"

I want to be able to tell my friends why is better than the birdsite, so I wrote a thing: "Mastodon Is Better than Twitter: Elevator Pitch"
codesections.com/blog/mastodon

I want this to be as persuasive as possible to outsiders, so I'd appreciate as much feedback as possible from Mastodon users
