  •  This is great, thanks! Also, the argument, "I (0+ / 0-)

    made it, therefor it's mine" depends upon the assumption of making it out of thin air, therefor it's ALL mine.  But since no creative object is made out of thin air by us near mortals, but heavily relies upon utilizing our inherited cultural wealth, and so is partly made of the commons and partly made of my unique addition, it's partly mine and partly the commons'.

    But it's nice to think I'm a little god bringing forth something from nothing.
