Musings on economics, politics and philosophy.
Very Poe-like intense...lacks his touch for alilteration and internal rhyming though. Make a hell of a goth/metal anthem. I prefer the absurd...and thus comes my shameless plug:
Thanks for checking in. Glad you enjoyed my scribblings. I'm definately going to keep an eye on your essays here...good food for thought.

Let me ask you a question. If I copied what you wrote above and posted it on my blog, without citing you as the text's author, you would not argue that I stole anything from you.
But would you argue that what I did was unfair? If so, why?
If you worked as a journalist or a writer or a scientist, and you were preparing a work of some sort, or you made a discovery -- would you not be interested in protecting your work before it got published? (I am not talking about the law here. I am talking about your own efforts to protect something.)
Or, better yet, if you found a good investment opportunity and wrote it down on a piece of paper (or you found a good job opening) -- would you be interested in protecting this information from your "rivals" (business or otherwise) until you made use of it? (Again, I am not talking about law, property rights, stealing, etc. I am just saying that if you had "invest in X" written on a piece of paper, would you guard it from others' eyes until you yourself made the investment?)
If you would -- what is it that you would be guarding? A piece of paper? But I am not trying to steal it. I am just trying to look at what's written on it.
By your guarding of information, would you not agree that you're acknowledging its existence and importance for you to guard?
