I understand your opinion. It depicts the real world we living in.
Everyone is free to choose its own ideology. But we virtually (with
more or less precision) may divide them (us free programmers) in two
groups: (1) these who does his job for himself and shares his work to
others and (2) these who does his job for others and by this deed
acquires his needs. Every beginning project should start from group 1
(otherwise they will not survive). And when they become mature they
should gradually migrate to group 2. If this is not happening then we
may call it 'infantilism'.
