Really? maybe i read the licence differently:

I don't agree with some points, but overall it seems that it is a licence that tries to associate basic human rights to what you can do with your software. If had developed a program that would do, for example bacteria recognition from images, i would use this licence to prevent it from being used in any way to develop bio weapons. A bit far fetched maybe, but a good example anyway.
