Back to the Eu copyright reform law with upload filter provisions and link tax in the new year. I am not a professional but I use the internet many hours a day and search extensively the scientific materials, so I know the publishers use copyrights and I cannot access such articles without buying them. Or they give me access to 3 of them per months. The same is with an art work, sometimes I can download them, sometimes I cannot. Or I download them into my folder and they expire in one months. Websites themselves have their own policies which I as a user have to comply with. The access to the internet is already heavily regulated compared to 2008-9 so this just another step to isolate Europe from many influences and information out of which one can form an independent opinion. I was brought up in socialism so I am used to censorship but after tasting freedom of the internet this is quite revolting. How come people do not massively revolt? All former socialist countries should be screaming! All old democracies should do the same, yet when I look at the spreadsheet how our representatives voted in the Parliament, I cannot believe my eyes. Is it because most of them are already a young generation, who did not experience the censorship? There is something very dangerous in our contemporary climate of fake news. When we had capitalism vs socialism we knew that ‘all lies were true on both sides’ but now we have only democracies with truths being called fake news and fake news being called truths so the public gets confused. Some humorous voting there:
I might be pessimistic on this but if we look at the current situation, where we have human experimentations going on, directed energy weapons in the form of smart phones being used on civilians as a profitable hunting business, climate change/weather control equation, transhumanistic megalomaniacs turning the planet upside down and all that wrapping up into 5G, further censoring seems dangerous to me. Especially when I read that the whole project is in hands of someone, who ‘implied that E.Snowden had endangered innocents’ lives and potentially collaborated with terrorists as well as the Russian and Chinese intelligence agencies.[1′ What would he be thinking about Julian Assange and Wikileaks?
I watched a documentary video recently and there was a classroom full of kids. The teacher was explaining something to them and after that she asked who agreed with it. All hands went up except one of the boys. The teacher was still smiling, finishing the class and then looked at the boy and her tablet with a red button. She pressed it. The kids did not seem to be shocked. Humanity can go up or down on an evolutionary scale, can reach the ABOVE or descend to the lowest below, man as the only animal in Nature was given such a choice. So let’s be careful.
Somebody mentioned the custom of Tibetan monks to create colour sand mandala. It takes several days of concentrated attention to the details to accomplish such task, just for the sake of creation, not identifying with the act itself, however beautiful to the eyes. After finishing it they go and destroy it with complete detachment. It just came to my mind that perhaps we in the West could get gently inspired by their approach to creation regarding our obsession with copyrighting everything we come across…after all, we got all necessary things for free originally, had not we?
