Thanks, FBI: We Real Worlders Again Find The Elitist World Annoying
Ok - I don’t bet that. At all.
What does make sense to us Real Worlders - is seeing yet another Elite get yet another Get-Out-of-Reality-Free card. It is all growing quite tiresome.
We Real Worlders are tired of the Elites’ limitless condescension - combined with incessant wrong-ness.
We’re tired of Elites who are clearly in possession of far less common sense (but many, many more degrees) - mandating ever more portions of our lives.
We’re tired of Elites committing multiple felonies and skating away un-indicted - while we get a ticket nigh every single time we park five minutes longer than the meter for which we paid allows.
A majority of the British people just told the European Union (EU) Elites to get out.
A majority of Americans who participated in the presidential primary totally rejected the Elites - voting for outsiders Donald Trump (in runaway record numbers) and Bernie Sanders.
Don’t think there is Trump-Sanders Elite disgust overlap?

In which academic discussions occur in a Reality-free-vacuum - with no concept of how terribly their ideas will damage the Real World. Which would only be annoying - if these babble-fests were cordoned off to the fevered swamps of college campus faculty lounges. The problem is - the Elites are increasingly trying to turn this nonsense into government policy.
To wit: The protection of intellectual property (patents, copyrights, trademarks, etc). In Elite World, intellectual property is bizarrely considered less than physical property - and deserving of far less protection. And by many - none whatsoever.
As often happens in Elite World, the Constitution is completely ignored. Behold the Copyright Clause:
Monopoly is the exclusive right to use any boat to trade with India, to use any paper to make playing cards in 17th century England, to use any trap to catch beavers in North America, to use any speakers to play “Happy Birthday,” to use any computer to deliver a podcast or download “Happy Birthday,” to use any plastic and aluminum to build a certain kind of washing machine….
Since it is an exclusive right to use any means in a certain way, intellectual “property” is not property at all, but monopoly. Intellectual “property” is therefore a misnomer, euphemistically used by state-privileged monopolists to drape their monopolies in the mantle of property.
The Constitution mandates the “securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.” It is not exclusive use of ANY patent, trademark or copyright - it is exclusive use of the patent, trademark or copyright that they themselves create.
According to the above author’s weird IP analogy, my buying a car would allow me to drive any car I see. When in fact it only allows me to drive the car I purchased - and to retain monopolistic control over who else is allowed to drive it. For instance, I can lease my car to someone in exchange for payment.
Just as I can lease my patent to someone in exchange for payment. My (patented/trademarked/copyrighted) idea is like my car - it’s mine. The Constitution and common sense dictate that what’s mine is mine - and not wide open to theft by everyone else on the planet.
You know who agrees with me? The Real World. Even some Real Worlders who exist inside Elite World bubbles - but manage to remain un-addled thereby.
Americans Must Channel the Founders and Protect Artists’ Property Rights
5 Ways Intellectual Property Will Be Critical To Your Career: “(I)intellectual property (IP) - patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets - …is now the key engine of opportunity for almost any successful career in the future.”
There is great and growing evidence that most Elites care only about government growth - which is antithetical to economic growth. So they don’t mind stomping out IP - and thus the economy.
We Real Worlders understand this. Which is why we’re in the process of rejecting the Elites.
Here’s hoping we do so as rapidly as possible.
