Every hierarchy, every abuse, every act of domination that seeks to justify or excuse itself appeals through analogy to the rule of adults over children. We are all indoctrinated from birth in ways of “because I said so.” The flags of supposed
experience, benevolence, and familial obligation are the first of many paraded through our lives to celebrate the suppression of our agency, the dismissal of our desires, the reduction of our personhood. Our whole world is caught in a cycle of abuse, largely unexamined and unnamed. And at its root lies our dehumanisation of children.
Intellectual property is a legally fabricated monopoly, confining culture and science, and violently depriving the poorest and most marginalised from access to critical resources. The fictions of copyright and patent are despotic attempts to monopolise the mind; outrageous constraints on intelligence and creativity; and a destructive protectionist scheme for the profit of power.
These zines were originally published online free of charge and copyright. We’ve put
them in print so that they might reach a different audience, because we believe print
has a different impact to electronic editions. To do so, we’ve had to put a small cover
charge on this anthology; however, the reader should rest assured that the charge is
simply to cover the costs associated with printing. All of the publishers involved in
producing this edition operate on a strictly not-for-profit basis, and this print edition
stays true to the spirit of the original project.
We encourage the reader to pass this book on to a friend once they’ve finished with it.
this is the hardback version of this book, a limited number of which are available but not for wholesale to shops etc.
