Ideas & Intellectual Property Rights

Ideas help us move forward through this life. They are to be shared, added to and developed publicly. They are a common property of an evolving consciousness.

When we reduce ideas to commodities of individual expression for personal ownership and profit it becomes possible for individuals to own public reality. These individuals then become able to manipulate public opinion to their will. Ownership of ideas therefore creates ownership of society.

We then begin living in a reality of ideology and cease being the free expression of consciousness we really are. We start to believe this narrow reality is who we are rather than simply what we are experiencing. We become imprisoned into a limited and slavish reality controlled by the owners of our public ideas, instead of creators of a wonderful and brilliant world.

This is where we are now, on a planet controlled by a power elite no human force is going to change. Einstein says no problem in the Universe can be solved by the same mind that created it. The problems we are currently facing on this planet stem from our minds, and so according to Einstein our thinking is not going to get us out of them. Part of the solution is dropping these mind-created systems that are destroying us
, and dropping this limited reality of the ownership of ideas is a good place to start.

We do not need intellectual property rights to survive. We need food and water. We need love, family and community. Then we can live in this abundant world created for us to share in together, instead of the scarcity world of intellectual property rights.

  1. That's why I use Open Source Linux, and not some Microsoft Crap Version 7 or whatever is the flavor of the year.

    Linux is made by college students and other like-minded people. And they do it and share it for free, to help humanity, instead of hindering it.

    Imagine buying a car for whatever amount, and then discovering the lug-nuts are welded on, the hood is welded shut, it can only be parked in one place, and only the licensed purchaser can operate it. Oh yeah, it has no dashboard, only 1 gear, and sometimes it goes right when you turn right, but sometimes it goes left. That's proprietary auto-updating software, and that's Microsoft in a nutshell.

    If you make music/art/sculpture/software/whatever, do it because you love it, and give it away so people might actually hear/see/use/enjoy it. If you want to make money, tour and sell merchandise/service. Or get a real job and just make your stuff for the love of it.

    And, believe me, the money grubbing weasels are just starting to get rolling. That SOPA crap, and every little thing these people legislate to stop people from sharing, well, it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. They have nothing original, and they know it. They make money through the control of information channels and supply routes. They do not create a net gain, they just suck the life out of anything that has any.

    Why else do you think Zombies and Vampires are so popular these days. Just go to the mall.
