There are a handful of software licenses I know of which do not meet the Free Software Foundation's Free Software Definition and take social responsibility for its applications while meeting freedoms 1,2, and 3. But before that I want to mention a special mention for a nonfree license which does this, the [Beloved Community License (BCLv1)](https://www.douglass.io/the-bcl). The BCL is hardly comprehensive and uses "spiritual" language though (not sure that holds up in court, much less reality). Licenses which do improve on this take roughly the same concerns into account for the creation of a better world while also keeping code free. Some of them also have additional political motivations, but keep in mind that I do not strictly endorse any additional terms, it is just not very many licenses accomplish this so licenses which go a bit farther are sometimes the only examples. Some of these cover cases the others do not and have different approaches to ensuring social responsibility. I also try to avoid licenses which place the restriction on *who* is running the program rather than *why* they are running the program.
So in no particular order (the order I found them) we have:
- The [NPL](https://thufie.lain.haus/NPL.html) - Similar to the AGPL (Page also has the CNPL, which violates my rule about "who" rather than "why")
- The [OAL](https://github.com/AnarchistLicense/OpenAnarchistLicense) - Similar to the MIT License
- The [CGPL](http://cgpl.org/) - Similar to the GPL (I like the approach on this one, it just pins the [UDHRC](https://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/index.html) directly to the license)
EDIT: I found someone else that keeps a better list of licenses that I will link to instead: [List of Licenses for Freedom](https://write.pixie.town/licenses-for-freedom/list-of-licenses-for-freedom).
To conclude, if you *really* want to Free Society, then use the _new_ 3 when defining what makes a free license (if you would excuse the very old, but GNU pun).
