"Into their place stepped free competition, accompanied by a social andpolitical constitution adapted to it, and by the economic andpolitical sway of the bourgeois class. But ``free competition'' wasnever more than an aspiration of bourgeois society, which constantlyexperienced the capitalists' intrinsic preference for monopoly.Bourgeois property exemplified the concept of monopoly, denying at thelevel of practical arrangements the dogma of freedom bourgeois lawinconsistently proclaimed. As, in the new digital society, creatorsestablish genuinely free forms of economic activity, the dogma ofbourgeois property comes into active conflict with the dogma ofbourgeois freedom. Protecting the ownership of ideas requires thesuppression of free technology, which means the suppression of freespeech. The power of the State is employed to prohibit free creation.Scientists, artists, engineers and students are prevented fromcreating or sharing knowledge, on the ground that their ideas imperilthe owners' property in the system of cultural production anddistribution. It is in the courts of the owners that the creatorsfind their class identity most clearly, and it is there, accordingly, that the conflict begins."

Some part of me really wants this, something about that really crappy picture and terrible font just makes it far too awesome.

Just got my new wireless keyboard / mouse set from Rosewill, and they are amazing. Other than my fingers getting used to the tiny backspace key, this thing makes me really happy!

Merry Christmas, me!
