I think open source full potential can only be unleashed if we ditch capitalism.

Regarding GPL licensing specifically, one could argue it was designed to virally create this "incompatibility" with the market based system as a whole, and over time push us towards resource based economy (hopefully built on democracy).

In the current global system open source development remains a compromise which can only profit in business constructs designed to provide funding by other means.
