Free Knowledge Is Not A Myth

Knowledge is not a property. Knowledge is not some poison. Knowledge doesnt make you a criminal. Everyone has the right to be selfish. Everyone has the right to withhold his knowledge from others. But (i think) it is through sharing of knowledge the whole world can prosper. Thats the real spirit.

Although knowledge is suppressed in many contexts by several ways, including patents and intellectual property, or through censorship and encryption of information, yet i see a flame blazing in the skies. It is just simple proof of concept, but it speaks so loudly.
This success story has a name: its called wikipedia....
