Time for a bit of comic relief. (video below the fold) Julianna reporting on Net Neutrality. Remember when President Obama said the days of lobbyists setting the agenda was over?
I’m posting this here because this is about “markets”. It is about competition. It is about freedom. The free market competition of…wait for it…IDEAS. It is not corporations or products that compete they only represent the materialization of what truly is protected in this nation, of what is the singularity within the US Constitution: IDEAS. Everything, outside of nature its self is derived from ideas. I was taught this about economics in high school in the early 70’s. Was I taught incorrectly?
Here’s the thing about ideas competing. The business model is not the end all and be all for the means by which to determine their value, as some have worked so hard to have society and the world believe. That an idea can not be immediately or expediently monetized is not determinate of its worth to life and the reduction of the risks of living.
It is not just about the money.
