Why proprietary software is mathematically more evil than open source

As we all know, proprietary software costs time (t) and money (m). Hence,

Proprietary Software = m.t


However, we also know that time is money. Hence,

Proprietary Software = m^2


However money is the root of all evil. Hence,

m = (Evil)^1/2


By substitution we can show that,

Proprietary Software=((Evil)^1/2)^2 = Evil


Ok, so proprietary software is evil but is this more evil than open source? Since open source only costs time, it is therefore obvious that:-

Evilness of Proprietary Software = (Evilness of open source)^2


As a function of cost, then :-

Evilness of Proprietary Software per $= (Evilness of open source)^2/0

i.e.

Evilness of Proprietary Software per $= (Evilness of open source).infinity


If we hypothesise that open source isn't evil then :-

Evilness of Proprietary Software per $=0.infinity = 1


In other words, proprietary software is infinitely more evil than open source and even if open source isn't evil then proprietary software still absolutely is.
