I just discovered I am, for the most part, a Kopimist:
A religion is a belief system with rituals.
The missionary kopimistsamfundet is a religious group centered in Sweden who believe that copying and the sharing of information is the best and most beautiful that is. To have your information copied is a token of appreciation, that someone think you have done something good.

Except for these elements:
It is a direct sin to monitor and eavesdrop on people.
The absolute secrecy is holy in the church of kopimism.

Because according to my belief it goes against core tenets
* All knowledge to all
* The search for knowledge is sacred
And what is monitoring and eavesdropping but a search for knowledge.
And what is secrecy bun knowledge that is not held by all?

In order to compete one must first cooperate.

The argument for intellectual c is that people cannot compete unless they are given support to compete in the form of intellectual property protection. It is assumed that no cooperation is possible and that all success comes from competition alone. Cooperation is also a value and one that competition is promoted to the detriment of. Enforced cooperation is communism. Enforced competition as is currently the reality apparently lacks a label, but it is bad too.
