Simple Practices...

Ok, I don't know if I am a communist...

BUT,

I.M.H.O., I think that if human society is to become more... humane and not destroy itself, there has to be a change to the way people act within it...

I believe that there has to be a socio-political re-organizing, where the average person and all will work for the common good, for the community, for the whole and not for themselves, while each person will have the security that the community, the State will care for their needs and will provide them with the essentials of housing, food and health care at all times...

That way, fraudulence for personal gain will have no meaning, while everyone will be safe that there is no danger of being left without home or doctor...

Is this communism? Is it bad?

Intellectual Property?


Can you own an idea? Once you've come up with a poem, a story, a tune do you really expect to give your permission for someone to... evoke it?... and make a profit out of it?
Artistic creations are like children... once you bring them into the world, you have to release them... otherwise they suffocate...

Many film or music industries claim about lost profits due to the free circulation of art... who do they think we are? Do they actually think that we would be able to buy all this music and films that we freely circulate?

And one other thing... supposedly by buying CDs or DVDs, we help everyday working technicians like me and you make a living... if the entertainment industries care so much about them, then they should lower their prices and give equal shares to them!...


Being a writer myself, I try to imagine others copying my works and distributing them without me making any profit... Of course, since I'm a new writer, that would be an exquisite flattery to me... plus, EVERYONE would love to live only through their art, but Its free distribution is more important to all...
I make a simple thought... I remember all the art that I had access to without giving money I didn't have...

EVERYTHING happens here
