"Don't Be Evil" Used To Be Google's Motto -- No More!

 


Friends, with the rise of socialism, private property isn't what it used to be, especially in the eyes of many leftists.  Well, there's a major case before the Supreme Court that could erode our property rights even further.  Read all about it in my latest article, published in the hallowed electronic pages of American Greatness:

  1. I can't help but think about Judge Roberts and his stance (former?) on Obamacare and "the penalty is a tax" issue. Something tells me, the court will rule in favor of Google and their blatant intellectual threat. Indeed, it was blatant, they knew what they were doing.

  2. Linda, in this case you've got two giant corporations dueling for profits, so I'm not sure which side the Court will come down on. And I wouldn't give up on Obamacare just yet. There are more cases that could end up driving a stake through its heart. Frankly, it also matters who wins, or "wins", the election, because the Supreme Court often just waits to see in which direction the wind is blowing.

  3. Dr. Waddy et al: I have a perhaps interesting perspective on copyright. As a professional librarian I was expected, nominally at least ,to be cognizant of it's principles . In one workplace I was ordered to do public display of copyrighted works which violated copyright even as interpreted andplainly expressed by my state agency's lawyers. I was subjected to (amazingly) close to physical intimidation by a thuggish misfit supervisor enabled purely by affirmative action,for my properly expressed disagreement and submitted a union grievance for harassment which brought him to grudging bay and was supported by his boss, who had long suffered his imposed incompetence and ignorance. He wasn't the only one who considered my stand to be "ludicrous".Many of my teaching colleagues also thought it to be inappropriate.Uh,gee: the creator of a product has a traditional right to the fruits of his or her product and has the established right to demand of the users of that product, appropriate remuneration,yes? It's no surprise that in this marxist contaminated cultural environment many conveniently assume that accomplishments brought to fruition by often painful individual enterprise are automatically PUBLIC property. Well,let's see what the at least for now lawful SCOTUS has to say about that!

  4. Good point, Jack. Of course, the Left is full of people who demonstrate contempt for private property...and who coincidentally own a bunch of it themselves! Personally, I don't expect private property ever to be abolished (again), but it wouldn't surprise me if it were redefined to suit the whims of our all-knowing progressive masters.

  5. Dr.Waddy from Jack: We can be sure that private property (and lots of it - Stalin had how many dachas?) will endure in the possession of the nomenclatura and others of enhanced "equality" in any marxist totalitarian state ,so we can rest easy on that.
