Remember Hillary Clinton recently preaching Internet “freedom” and “information freedom?”
Have you just read my prior post where I examined a wrong mindset in the “West” thinking the rest of the world are lurking to “steal” their information?
You have one case of “information freedom” and another case of “information lock up” from the same direction. Both can’t possibly come from the same mouth; I say one must come from the butt.
Freedom of Information, so championed by so many in the West, is the antithesis to the notion of IP ownership and Western Technology export control.
Afterall, why claim “ownership” on the most VALUABLE of modern knowledge, in terms of technologies that can feed billions and cure diseases?
What’s left for “Freedom of Information” other than vaunted empty talks of “democracy”?
So, let the Poor starving sick billions have “democracy” cake, but let them not touch the monopolistic information of the rich West, not even if they want to learn them or buy them?
I say this is also censorship, and it censors the most valuable of information from those who MOST need it, for nothing more than pure greed and monopoly of technological domination.
Give me censored news any day, but damned if I can’t buy good medicine for my people, I will pay someone to steal it, to save lives.
And to someone who claims ownership on knowledge, (and the Western governments):
Knowledge is meant to be shared. Know that you hold knowledge for the benefit of all man kind, not just your kind. If you relinquish your responsibilities to your fellow man for money, safety, security, or power, you shall have nothing at all.
Knowledge cannot be contained, cannot be owned.
