WHY I.P.??

IP a real pisser

Intellectual Property and Other Fantasized Rights

I've rightfully been faulted for too slowly producing my promised pummeling of the pathetic premises behind Intellectual Property (IP). On the other hand, the mere diversion of attention from the blog's core theme (money morals) to engage IP proponents could reasonably be question as well. So true to what I indicated previously, this post will examine why IP is a valid YeNom blog topic.

Restating exactly what this blog's objective actually is may be useful. This can be best encapsulated as ... freedom. Now if the direct connection between YeNom/SUYO (Simple Undeniable Yank-proof Ownership) and freedom is not readily evident then this review is particularly pertinent. In contrast to ‘freedoms’ afforded by the state (better called “freakdoms”) were one is generously released of responsibility and encouraged to enjoy rights to unearned medicine, food, housing, condoms, etcetera; the freedom I'm selling is the exact anti-thesis where responsibility is actually the prime prerequisite for real freedom and a person is free to suffer the consequences of their own actions (regardless of how excruciatingly successful that may turn out). I'd further like to aptly argue that freedom can be equivalently understood as disengagement from slavery.

YeNoms advance the above by simply providing the most effective means personally conceivable for realizing freedom. In other-words, no single thing predisposes the human mind to respond more slothfully and slave like than the notion of money as some natural proprietary asset of the state. This hardly argues that money per se is evil (as if such a thing existed), but just the opposite since money could fully enable the division of labor with all it's life saving and Homo-sapien enhancing advantages. So the real problem lies in money being catastrophically crippled when employed as some proprietary weapon. YeNoms are not only a thief proof foundation for open money, but is further distinguished from the current proprietary system by rewarding integrity instead for enticing issuers to profit from acts of bad faith.

The ‘Prophetless’ Hackers

Prophetless

a Geek Tragedy

Hackers? — Yea, plus the various extraordinary phenomena spawned from the same spirit. For example: The GNU approach – Linus's Law (bazaar model) – the wiki wonder – and all the gifted persons moving this new future forward. These pioneers and their strategies have achieved record breaking results with heretofore inconceivable despatch. Some real (programming type) hackers may resent being grouped with wiki workers. If so, the tragedy is only exacerbated to the extent any uneasiness is taken to heart. I know, you're thinking, “Tragedy? What tragedy?” Well I'm glad you asked.

Regarding open versus proprietary software the technical verdict is in and the war is won. At this juncture, the proprietary camp has as much chance of prevailing over free hackers as LPs had over CDs – tubes over transistors – BBSs over the Internet – and so on. A crucial difference exist however between the open/proprietary conflict and the other comparisons. The later are all examples of hard specific technical differences, while the free vs proprietary thing delves more into social realities and philosophy. OK, it's time for a new ‘ism&squo; – how about “bazaarism”? (like that's got a chance of sticking) The first notable issue is that unlike capitalism, Marxism or socialism – bazaarism does not have oodles of blather (formal ideology) pushing to popularize it. Instead, bazaarism spontaneously came into existence on its own. Yet bazaarism largely remains unrecognized for what it is – a new social paradigm who's time has come as heralded by the humble hacker.

Illustrious Ownership, monetize, SUYO,

Original Gifts

showMe.gpg was attached to my first email for Richard M. Stallman. This was showMe.html encrypted which I described as, “My letter outlining the promise of GNU.hope.” My third email asked, “… please read the document at show2.html, where I explain the whole idea in a manner as clean and forthright as my abilities permit.” Then the fourth post of this blog - For the Love of Money - delivered my third attempt at “… a simple, brief, nontechnical way to explain the idea.” Gauging from the reactions this effort gained, it is evident the third time was NOT the charm. Consequently, a fourth charge on that objective now follows:

GOAL: To find a means of awakening individuals to a new realm of realizing and sharing wealth. It's a purpose inspired by an aching need as manifested in a few examples: 1) The Great Depression of the 1930's, 2) Nazi Germany's immensely injurious inflation a bit later, 3) current savage poverty in the rural areas of 3rd world countries, 4) a ‘capital crunch’ inhibiting the accrual of rewards dearly deserved by those magnificent pioneers forging a brave new future through free software (along with hundreds of other great causes). While these may appear as diametrical cases they all spring from the exact same basic flaw - a people being overly dependent on a proprietary monetary system. Hence no alternatives exist in the face of disastrous manipulations or simply when money outside traditional capital streams is scarce. Considering how fine the corporate Federal Reserve has flourished in spite of (or thanks to) the Depression, and the grand showing of the German Mark in post war times, it is difficult to envision the monetary status quo receding from prominence without a truly major revolution (transformation) of mind. That revolution dear reader is our goal.
