Sveriges paradis borde vara världens paradis
Idag skriver ett antal antikopimister brännande ord på Svenska Dagbladets debattsida. Deras ord är hätska och bär våld med sig. De uppmuntrar till häxbränning av information och en skrämmande och internetfientlig primitivism.
De kallar Sverige för “piraternas paradis”. Vi tycker att det är problematiskt. Paradiset bör ej ha gränser. Vi uppmuntrar Sveriges regering och utrikesdepartement att utveckla en plan för att exporta Sveriges piratsuccé till resten av världen genom mellanstatliga organisationer och bistånd, så att alla världens folk kan leva i kopiering, internet och kärlek.
Vi välsignar alla som är med och bygger upp piratkopieringens paradis varje dag, från sina hemdatorer och sina servrar, från sina mobiltelefoner och sina läsplattor. Kopiering är heligt.
Kopiera och sprid!
The swedish paradise should be a global paradise
Today, a debate article was published in one of Swedens national newspapers by several antikopimists. The words were burning with hatred and hostility. They encourage persecution of information and an alarming primitivism filled with reactionary anti-internet propaganda.
They refer to Sweden as the “pirates paradise”. We think that Sweden being the pirate paradise is problematic. The paradise shouldn’t have borders. We encourage the swedisg government and foreign department to draw up a plan to export the swedish pirate success through intergovernmental organizations and foreign aid, so that all the people of the world can live in copying, internet and love.
We bless everyone who’s building the paradise of pirate copying every day, through their personal computers and servers, through their mobile phones and their pads. Copy is holy, copy is right.
Copy and seed!
“Sverige är fortfarande piraternas paradis“, translated
Bless and copy!
After a lot of discussion and work from the board of the church, we have finally sent a new application for official recognition to the swedish authorities. I sincerely hope that they scan and copy our application, and that they approve our application. Copy be with them, and may a lot of torrents be downloaded to their computers.
My friends, my fellow humans, bots, servers, animals and software; copy our word, the word of kopimist wisdom. Seed it into the minds of others.
Copy and seed,
Spiritual leader laxsill
Copy and paste. Praised be those who download this post to their disks and brains.
It has reached my knowledge that a holy deed has been committed against the oppressive system of scientific journals. This deed was committed by no other than Greg Maxwell himself – according to the GPG-signature. He has uploaded 33 gigabytes of copies of the copyright protected journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. Blessed be he always. I urge you all to download not only the journals but the text he has written of his actions to your minds, and upload it to everyone you can.
Let science flow, through fiber an’ through copper. Let knowledge fly through our satellites and back. Let understanding be copied to eachothers minds, through dialogue and reading. Let scientific data be mailed, downloaded and uploaded. Praised be Greg Maxwell for his deeds for information, science and life all over this world.
Copy and seed,
Let love flow, through fiber and through copper. Let knowledge fly, over fax and over irc. Let bits sweep, over torrents and over mail. This is still a day of darkness. This day that we celebrate the ritual and the judicial imprisonment of what anti kopimist forces recognize as intellectual property, the World Intellectual Property Day. A day of propaganda established to spread the myth of the false links between creativity and the imprisonment of ideas. A day when we are being told once and again how important it is for the holders of certain information to “protect” their information from spreading. For what reason? To “stimulate” the creation of ideas. The thought itself is more absurd and orwellian than bombing civilians for peace and stability, and I seriously think of the idea of intellectual imprisonment as the only idea that needs to be “protected”.
My thoughts today go to all ideas that are being imprisoned for the sake of personal profit. I think of all ideas locked behind illusions of copyright, walls of patents and B-52:s of DRM-weapons. I will fight for your freedom to be shared and copies, again and again. You are in the hearts of all kopimists.
My visions head in the direction of the symbiosis we could have had. To a future where organic beings live in peace and harmony with information without imprisoning it. It is a bright future for mankind, who will be able to life of the fruits of the knowledge and culture that ideas contain, without being restricted by the war against the freedom of information.
I also think of the kopimists being persecuted daily for the sake of intellectual imprisonment. Men and women dedicating their lives and machines to the copying of information, only to find themselves prosecuted in court. I think of the persecuted machines, protocols and code, banned and sometimes even confiscated and destroyed, for the sake of copying.
Copy, my fellow machines, bits, codes, animals, women and men. Copy love, so that the copied love can deafen the screams and claims of those who imprison information. Seed knowledge, to silence the ignorance of those who defend the evil system of imprisonment. The world wide fiber shalt never forget our vows to kopimism. Create to destroy, copy to seed, talk to listen, write to rewrite and rewrite to write.
Copy and seed, laxsill
