law v. people
it seems there will always be conflict as long as we think that it is OK. i don't mean conflict because of mistakes or misunderstandings. i refer to a dog eat dog world that accepts cheating and subversion as good business. all one has to do is take note of the volume of court cases that involve copyright or patents. it is very difficult for me to not think that these involve very smart and knowledgeable people that are just trying to cheat the system. although i do believe that we need a system that protects our property and our right to prosper from it, i have trouble with a system that focuses on who gets the control of economic benefit rather than the quality of creation. i guess the best way to close this out is to use the words of another. John Lennon said "you may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...i hope some day you'll join us, and the world can live as one" and"imagine all the people sharing all the world"
