Piracy is Theft? Ridiculous. Lost Sales? They Don't Exist, Says Minecraft Creator posted 03/06/2011, 3:00 PM (TorrentFreak)
[Category: Science/Technology]
The "piracy is stealing" argument raises its head in the media every week and is on the lips of anti-piracy outfits and copyright holders every day. To them, every unauthorized copy is a lost sale and another small dent in the company spreadsheet which, when added to a million others, will destroy it bit by bit. To the maker of Minecraft, however, its an opportunity. Piracy is theft? You must be kidding. Lost sales? They don't exist.

The Fluoridation Question Revisited posted 03/06/2011, 3:00 PM (Laurence M. Vance)
[Category: Brave New World]
Municipalities and other water providers throughout the United States — and the general public they serve — are universally concerned about the amount of industrial chemicals, toxic metals, carcinogens, pesticides, and pollutants present in the drinking water supply.

On the surface, it seems rather strange to add foreign substances to drinking water other than what is necessary to purify and improve the water. Yet, beginning with the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1945, fluo

Jimmy John Liautaud, founder of the Jimmy John's sub chain, just applied to move his residence from Illinois to Florida — and his company's headquarters could soon follow. "All they do is stick it to us," he says of the state legislature's move to jack up the personal income tax from 3 percent to 5 percent — and the corporate income tax from 7.3 percent to 9.5 percent.

"I could absorb this and adapt," Liautaud tells his hometown paper, the Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette, "but it do

Stay out of Libya posted 03/06/2011, 2:59 PM (Sheldon Richman)
[Category: Commentary]
It’s good to see that the Pentagon is unenthusiastic about military intervention in Libya. But that hasn’t stopped armchair generals such as Sen. John Kerry from pushing for a no-fly zone over that country.

Kerry thinks he can make his plan more appealing by couching it in internationalist terms, but we know the American people would bear the brunt of the burden. Kerry is joined by Sens. Joe Lieberman and John McCain, the Senate’s two most obnoxious militarists. Regarding the mi

In Defense of Apathy posted 03/06/2011, 2:59 PM (Strike The Root)
[Category: Commentary]
Apathy is one of the most commonly derided dispositions that an individual can possess. We are constantly inundated with pleas to "get involved" by friends, colleagues, teachers, politicians, and pundits. These pleas come from people of all political persuasions: liberals, conservatives, moderates, greens, socialists, and libertarians. Are there any compelling reasons to engage in political activism? Does political activism ever produce desirable results? Are the people who are entirely apatheti... (more)

So, you thought the economic crisis we are currently experiencing was caused by loose monetary policy, loose economic regulation, or just plain loose morals by the likes of Goldman Sachs and associated plutocrats?

The Revolution Will Not Be Properly Licensed posted 03/06/2011, 2:56 PM (TorrentFreak)
[Category: Commentary]
We see it everywhere. Corporations are trying to take control over our communications tools, citing copyright concerns. Frequently, they are assisted by hapless politicians, who are also aspiring for the same control, citing terrorist concerns or some other McCarthyist scareword of the day. We should see this in perspective of the revolts happening right now in the Arab world.
