No, ‘we’ don’t have popular culture because ‘they’ engage in copyright abuse
MK: Simply put, if Moore were sincere in his criticism of Big Business he would take on the copyright cartel and the soul-rotting, economy busting travesty of ‘perpetual copyright’ and support groups like eff.org. He doesn’t, because he’s conflicted. He takes that copyright cartel money and never questions it. (Plus, his film “Capitalism: A Love Story” never talked about capital, the Fed, and the role of debt-based money – but I suspect this is more a function of financial illiteracy than hypocrisy).
Addendum: As I have argued many times, copyright abuse is the biggest threat we face. Locking up our ideas on corporate balance sheets and cutting us off from our intellectual and creative birth right is tantamount to performing a species wide lobotomy. If we can’t compose thoughts without violating copyright – and this is increasingly becoming the case with ever more State controlled, sophisticated technological means of reading our emails, texts, etc. – we can never express why and how we seek reform. Michael Moore, for all his bluster fails, because he has shied away from taking on this lynchpin issue.
