Open Access or Legalized Piracy?  November 12, 2010 – 08:23 am
How to buy organizational

It seems we are to get Open Access in the UK whether we like it or not. It is, though, interesting to note how cavalier some people are about others’ intellectual property rights. A conspicuous absence from the Finch committee that reported on the issue was anybody who represented the interests of authors, from the Writers Guild or the Authors Licensing and Copyright Society, for instance. Similar bodies also seem to have been excluded from the EU discussions that have generated the proposed requirement for Open Access under the new Horizon funding programme. In effect, we are seeing a further extension of the indifference to the interests of content creators that marks a lot of current debates about the internet. ‘Content wants to be free’, we are told – yes, but content creators also want to be fairly rewarded. This is particularly relevant to those of us in the social sciences and humanities. Our biomedical friends get two bites at the cherry when it comes to intellectual property. They can give away their copyright knowing that they will benefit handsomely from any patentable product that emerges. Indeed, freer flow of scientific communication may even enrich them more quickly. For those of us in the social sciences and humanities, however, copyright is everything. The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) are rightly keen to see intellectual property properly exploited – but Open Access expropriates authors’ rights in their own work. Legalizing copyright piracy in one context seems a strange position for a government department that is actively pursuing copyright pirates in others.

No such thing as Libertopia - it is just fantasy

What Libertarians have the luxury of doing is sitting back and saying "All the problems will be solved if we just let Jesus, err, property into our hearts, err, politics". What they do tactically is to focus on incidents or areas where the political process is at its worst, and peddle their snake-oil theory, contrasting the gritty reality with their pristine fantasy. Of course the fantasy looks ...o chores? What's the difference?"
But of course this can be attacked in various ways, because Libertopia is pure fantasy, and the real-world rarely stacks up well to a fantasy, especially a political one.
A Libertarian can blithely argue that all problems would be solved by private charity, by people of goodwill, or if government would just get out of the way. It's a common tactic:

Reason and God

A fair amount of bashing goes on based on apparent clashes between those two. A recent thread (see below) brought this out explicitly. This is particularly pertinent to this forum since "faith-based intelligence" has come to describe some of Bush&Co's M.O.
The "inherent nature of faith" is in fact almost exactly the basis for Reason and God *not* being incompatible. I think that the bashin...piracle evidence. To me reason is the acceptance and evaluation of rational observations through objective sensory perceptions.
I can appreciate the arguement for faith being a sense that you "feel" but so many parts of organized religion ask you to neglect or ignore laws of the physical world that I hold true. That seems like a disregard for rational thought and thus unreasonable.
