Since I'm now my entity which I can provide meeting minutes or board
resolution for, is now the only one who agrees to that mission statement,
it doesn't restrict anybody. If the entity's mind is changed, which likely
it will never be, then this just gets depreciated or no longer adheres to
OSI standards which happened in the past to many other licenses.

It is just like how the GNU License says they are guaranteeing your
software freedom. Nobody can guarantee that totilatarian governments don't
ban open source.

Also the MirOS license states:
We believe you are not liable for work inserted which is intellectual
property of third parties, if you were not aware of the fact, act
appropriately as soon as you become aware of that problem, seek an amicable
solution for all parties, and never knowingly distribute a
work without being authorised to do so by its licensors.

Which is technically not how liability in IP infringement works.
