On Art Theft: Why I am So Paranoid
I have wondered how owners of intellectual property could possibly be AGAINST copyright and its powers of protection. It took me a while to realize that most of these people never actually had a unique, independent, creative thought in their entire lives. Even those that have, I don’t think that they really know what it’s like to have to fight for your life just to preserve what little dignity you have left after having been the victim of direct actions of graffiti, sabotage, and theft of your most valuable assets.
You heard me right. You’ve got it all backwards. You just want to be free to continue robbing real artists. And that’s not even what irks me the most. You are free to do whatever the heck you want, but when your criminal acts of barbarism stop ME from being able to do MY work, to put bread and butter on MY table, for MY successors, then you really don’t have a clue, do you?
Yet I survived. I was able to keep a dozen unwritten novels just in my own human memory. And now that I have crossed the chasm of the cleansing fires of purgatory, I am putting it all on paper. Cause I can’t keep my mouth shut anymore.
I’m better than you think. No one will be culpable of anything. It’s not even a matter of naming names, the entire thing has been refined over and over in my mind over the course of 20 years. It has been fictionalized to the point that I myself can’t even remember anything else but my twisted fiction.
So don’t worry, the only harm that can possibly come from this is to myself. That’s how much I love and forgive my enemies for being such completely ignorant, stupid fools. But you haven’t cleared your conscience have you? Then sorry, then, cause this is really going to suck for you.
Have no fear! I am even better than that, cause I will make it fun and amusing and carnavalesque for EVERYONE. So let the games begin.
Who wants to go first? Dr. Kropotkin, do you have anything to add to this, anything?
