What is WIFO’s politics?


#1

Pluralist. Non-sectarian. Intellectual freedom should be compatible with a very large range of politics, and freedom infringing regimes incompatible with the same, upon examination. Although WIFO is non-sectarian, such examination from various sectarian positions is essential, as is debate concerning knowledge policy sans freedom infringing regimes, e.g., to what extent should knowledge production be publicly funded, to what extent should transparency (e.g., source code revelation) be regulated, and by what means? Some of these will break down to usual market failure vs. government failure debates; having these debates are a necessary part of getting past the present regime of government-granted private monopoly.


Feasible and sustainable reform toward abolition of regressive knowledge regulation to boost freedom, equality, and security
