Isn’t it better to fly under radar? Does WIFO’s explicit stands put existing gains at risk?


#1

The kinds of gains that are necessary to realize the potential of knowledge for increased freedom and equality will not be obtained through timidity nor subterfuge; these are recipes for being outcompeted in policy, production, and moral gravity by freedom infringing interests. There certainly are contexts in which flying under the radar is appropriate. Actors calculating that they are in such contexts may wish to ignore or criticize WIFO or increase their genuflections to Hollywood, pharma, 18th century elites, and myths of lone creators with a natural right to infringe on the freedoms of all.
