i cant find the exact quote,
or name the president,

so forgive me for the terrible wording

an idea good enough to benefit society, should not be held hostage for personal gain.

quoted badly but you get the idea

Indeed, you are correct, that is the cornerstone that we should try to raise. The wellbeing of all humans should come before the wealth of one person. Perhaps it will be hard in the beginning, but when a system like that have been going on for some years, everything will start to fall into place.

i agree whole heartedly with you on this^^^^^^^
very wise words,
some would call you a dreamer,
but your not the only one.

one day soon

I know how it is, one have the concept in the head but not in exact detail.
I am like that will allot of things. So your point is very clear

Wonder how long it will be until our world gets to that point.

I am a dreamer, that is what keeps me going

With all the things going on today, the dreams seems to be the best place to relax in.

Is it not horrible that the wellbeing of all humans are considered a dream and not fact!

its happening now,
except that its a culmination of open source hardware and open source software,
open culture and open publishing.

the trust and value is the medium of exchange,
still money, but in a digital sense

The Constitution does not grant rights. It just defines what the government can and cannot do. The "free speech" right we often discuss is not granted by the Constitution, but rather preserved by the Constitution... As for the copyright and patent clause? That's very often misinterpreted. All that clause does is give permission to Congress to create such laws -- but solely for the purpose of "promot[ing] the progress of science and the useful arts."

i support the promotion of useful arts,
i support science and innovation and beleive the innovators should be rewarded,
i just think exclusive rights to tech for 70 years will stop innovation,
and copy rite laws will make such innovation less likley to succeed.

why sell cds for 30$ to 1000 people,
when you can sell digital files for 2$ to a million people in a day?
