WIPO Amicus: Memetic Liberty Challenge to Intellectual Property; CommonSism Challenge to Anthropocentic Jurisprudence



EcoFeminist Sustainable Security Guerrylla Law CommonSist Amicus Curiae Submission to ICANN: WIPO in Ron Paul v RonPaul.com dispute

Amicus alleges (1) WIPO’s ‘Intellectual Property’ doctrine is founded upon Memetic Tyranny Jurisprudence; (2) WIPO’s Treaties are not Credible Peace/Problem Solving Treaties. WIPO Treaties – like all International Treaties -- are Parasitic ‘War is Peace’ Whore Treaties, to the extent that they ignore CommonSism Guerrylla Law Sustainable Security and Sustainable Rights principles.

Memetic Liberty, as enunciated, by among others, Susan Blackmore in ‘Waking from the Meme Dream’ , is confronting the reality that:

[37.1] Neurologically speaking, we believe in a ‘self’ that does not exist: the central controller we commonly believe exists somewhere in our brain, and is “I” is an illusion. There simply is no one inside our brains, our brains are colonized by various meme-complexes, one of those meme-complexes being the ego-memeplex belief that there is an ‘I’ in the brain, a central controller, a decider of decisions or an experiencer of experiences.

[37.2] Although our ego meme-complex has convinced us that there really is someone inside our brain to do our believing, thinking, decision-making, who needs to be protected; who ‘we’ are, are just temporary conglomerations of ideas, moulded together for our protection. Our bodies are the creations of temporary gene-complexes, and our minds are the creations of temporary meme-complexes, which have come from previous creatures, and will, when we speak and write and communicate, go on into future creatures.

Last week, Former Congressional Representative and Libertarian Politician Ron Paul filed a UDRP complaint against the site RonPaul.com (PDF), asking WIPO to turn over the domain to him. After Ron Paul's 2008 Presidential campaign, his supporters begged his staff and campaign to purchase RonPaul.com, which was at that time on auction at Ebay, being sold by the previous owner, also named Ron Paul. Ron Paul campaign refused to purchase RonPaul.com, and so the current owners of RonPaul.com purchased it, to avoid it being purchased by individuals wishing to use it, against the Ron Paul and Libertarian movement. Since their purchase of RonPaul.com, it has been one of the central sources for the huge grassroots effort that supported Ron Paul and his liberty message, as well as his last 2012 Presidential campaign.

Since Ron Paul has left Congress, he has now decided to embark on an Internet Liberty campaign, and wanted to use RonPaul.com for his campaign. There is significant confusion and debate about Ron Paul's decision not to seriously engage RonPaul.com in negotiations to purchase RonPaul.com, but only making a halfhearted effort, and subsequently filing his 'Intellectual Property' complaint to WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation) Abritration and Mediation Center.

Today, I filed an Amicus Curiae submission (PDF) -- based upon, among others, EcoCentric CommonSism Guerrylla Law principles -- to WIPO Registrar, arguing that (1) 1. WIPO’s ‘Intellectual Property’ doctrine is founded upon Memetic Tyranny Jurisprudence; and (2) WIPO’s Treaties are not Credible Peace/Problem Solving Treaties. WIPO Treaties – like all International Treaties -- are Parasitic ‘War is Peace’ Whore Treaties, to the extent that they ignore CommonSism Guerrylla Law Sustainable Security and Sustainable Rights principles.

******

WIPO’s ‘Intellectual Property’ doctrine is founded upon Memetic Tyranny Jurisprudence.

[35] According to Wikipedia, Ron Paul is best known for his libertarian views and is a critic of American foreign, domestic, and monetary policies, including the military–industrial complex, the War on Drugs, and the Federal Reserve.

[36] Generally American Libertarians “support maximum liberty in both personal and economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence. Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.”

[37] Memetic Liberty, as enunciated, by among others, Susan Blackmore in ‘Waking from the Meme Dream’ , is confronting the reality that:

[37.1] Neurologically speaking, we believe in a ‘self’ that does not exist: the central controller we commonly believe exists somewhere in our brain, and is “I” is an illusion. There simply is no one inside our brains, our brains are colonized by various meme-complexes, one of those meme-complexes being the ego-memeplex belief that there is an ‘I’ in the brain, a central controller, a decider of decisions or an experiencer of experiences.

[37.2] Although our ego meme-complex has convinced us that there really is someone inside our brain to do our believing, thinking, decision-making, who needs to be protected; who ‘we’ are, are just temporary conglomerations of ideas, moulded together for our protection. Our bodies are the creations of temporary gene-complexes, and our minds are the creations of temporary meme-complexes, which have come from previous creatures, and will, when we speak and write and communicate, go on into future creatures.

“The most obvious (and scary) conclusion from modern neuroscience is that there is simply no one inside the brain. The more we learn about the way the brain functions the less it seems to need a central controller, a little person inside, a decider of decisions or an experiencer of experiences. These are just fictions - part of the story the brain tells itself about a self within (Churchland and Sejnowski, 1992; Dennett, 1991).”

[..] Religions are, according to Dawkins (1993 ), huge co-adapted meme-complexes; that is groups of memes that hang around together for mutual support and thereby survive better than lone memes could do. Other meme-complexes include cults, political systems, alternative belief systems, and scientific theories and paradigms.

Religions are special because they use just about every meme-trick in the book (which is presumably why they last so long and infect so many brains). Think of it this way. The idea of hell is initially useful because the fear of hell reinforces socially desirable behaviour. Now add the idea that unbelievers go to hell, and the meme and any companions are well protected. The idea of God is a natural companion meme, assuaging fear and providing (spurious) comfort. The spread of the meme-complex is aided by exhortations to convert others and by tricks such as the celibate priesthood. Celibacy is a disaster for genes, but will help spread memes since a celibate priest has more time to spend promoting his faith.

Another trick is to value faith and suppress the doubt that leads every child to ask difficult questions like "where is hell?" and "If God is so good why did those people get tortured?". Note that science (and some forms of Buddhism) do the opposite and encourage doubt.

Finally, once you’ve been infected with these meme-complexes they are hard to get rid of. If you try to throw them out, some even protect themselves with last-ditch threats of death, ex-communication, or burning in hell-fire for eternity.

[..] We are in charge of our bodies, we run the show, we decide which ideas to believe in and which to reject. But do we really? If you begin to think about selfish memes it becomes clear that our ideas are in our heads because they are successful memes. American philosopher Dan Dennett (1995) concludes that a "person" is a particular sort of animal infested with memes. In other words you and I and all our friends are the products of two blind replicators, the genes and the memes.

I find these ideas absolutely stunning. Potentially we might be able to understand all of mental life in terms of the competition between memes, just as we can understand all biological life in terms of the competition between genes.

Now we have a radically new idea of who we are. We are just temporary conglomerations of ideas, moulded together for their own protection. The analogy with our bodies is close. Bodies are the creations of temporary gene-complexes: although each of us is unique, the genes themselves have all come from previous creatures and will, if we reproduce, go on into future creatures. Our minds are the creations of temporary meme-complexes: although each of us is unique, the memes themselves have come from previous creatures and will, if we speak and write and communicate, go on into future creatures. That’s all.

The problem is that we don't see it this way. We believe there really is someone inside to do the believing, and really someone who needs to be protected. This is the illusion - this is the meme-dream from which we can wake up.

Dismantling the Meme-Dream

There are two systems I know of that are capable of dismantling meme-complexes (though I am sure there are others). Of course these systems are memes themselves but they are, if you like, meme-disinfectants, meme-eating memes, or "meme-complex destroying meme-complexes". These two are science and Zen.

Science works this way because of its ideals of truth and seeking evidence. It doesn’t always live up to these ideals, but in principle it is capable of destroying any untruthful meme-complex by putting it to the test, by demanding evidence, or by devising an experiment.

Zen does this too, though the methods are completely different. In Zen training every concept is held up to scrutiny, nothing is left uninvestigated, even the self who is doing the investigation is to be held up to the light and questioned. "Who are you?"

[38] Consequently, it can be reasonably safely stated, that the majority of Anthropocentric Jurisprudence is based upon a false illusion of self, as a result of Memetic Tyranny colonization of our brains by thousands of frequently false, meme complexes.

[39] A WIPO Panel intellectually and psychologically capable of applying and enquiring into Memetic Liberty principles; would enquire into the question: “Who is Ron Paul and what is he famous for?”

[39.1] Is ‘Ron Paul’ a self, that exists, a central controller that truly factually exists somewhere in his brain; or is ‘Ron Paul’ an ego meme-complex, that has colonized his mind, and deceived him that ‘Ron Paul’ is a self, that exists, a central controller that truly factually exists somewhere in his brain?

[39.2] Is ‘Ron Paul’ famous for his physical being of legs, arms, eyes and ears?

[39.3] Is Ron Paul famous for allowing his mind to be colonized by the Liberty Revolution Memecomplex, to the extent that he was willing to become a public spokesperson for other minds to welcome colonization by the Liberty Revolution Meme-complex?

[39.4] Can the being, named Ron Paul neurologically prove that the ‘self’ he believes in, as existing in his mind, the central controller, the decider of decisions, actually exists, and that his mind’s concept of self – whom he believes ‘Ron Paul’ to be – is not simply the deception the Ego-I-Self Meme Complex and the Liberty Revolution Meme-complex has convinced him he is?

[39.5] Furthermore, does Ron Paul’s advocacy on behalf of the ‘Liberty Revolution’, not extend towards an enquiry into the evidence for Memetic Liberty Jurisprudence? If not, why not?


WIPO’s Treaties are not Credible Peace/Problem Solving Treaties. WIPO Treaties – like all International Treaties -- are Parasitic ‘War is Peace’ Whore Treaties, to the extent that they ignore CommonSism Guerrylla Law Sustainable Security and Sustainable Rights principles.

[41] WIPO treaties are not ‘credible’ ‘peace treaty’ or ‘arbitration resolution’ legislation treaties.

[42] A ‘credible’ judicial system, or peace treaty, or arbitration resolution system, is one which accurately applies the relevant natural or scientific laws, to attain a specific related required result of inter-human and intra-species harmony and balance.

[43] For example:

[43.1] Anders Breivik and Carlos the Jackal were ‘credible’ bomb making terrorists, in the sense of accurately following the recipe’ for the laws of physics related to bomb-making and detonation.

[43.2] A chef who wants to make a Crème brûlée, is not going to have a ‘credible’ Crème brûlée, if he used the ingredients and recipe – i.e. cooking laws -- for road kill stew.

[44] A credible legal system is one which (A) adheres to the laws of nature/ecology, recognizing that a healthy ecological environment, with due regard for carrying capacity laws of sustainability is a sine qua non for all other constitutional rights; and (B) adheres to the laws of human nature; recognizing that culture’s and sub-cultures whose members practice brutal honesty, self sufficiency, personal responsibility, transparency and commitment to root cause problem solving have far greater harmony amongst their members, than tribes or cultures whose members practice political correctness, sycophancy, hypocrisy, parasitism, denial of responsibility, secrecy masquerading as ‘privacy’, and a focus on Public Relations Image Management Pretend problem solving.

[45] Anthropocentric International Law -- Patriarchal Anthropocentric Flat Earth jurisprudence is not credible, according to the aforementioned definition of ‘credible’, because – among others – it:

[45.1] Ignores the laws of nature/ecology reality that the Earth is NOT FLAT, and that resources are not infinite. Anthropocentric Jurisprudence refuses to confront the reality that a majority of the socio-political problems experienced in anthropocentric jurisprudence cultures: crime, violence, unemployment, poverty, inflation, food shortages, political instability, vanishing species, garbage and pollution urban sprawl, traffic jams, toxic waste, energy and non-renewable resources (NNR) depletion are a consequence of overpopulation and overconsumption induced scarcity. International Anthropocentric jurisprudence fails to legally (a) define the difference between sustainable and unsustainable procreation and consumption behaviour; and (b) provide legal rights to sustainable practices, and legal penalties to unsustainable individuals, corporations and organisations.

[45.2] Ignores the laws of human nature; by discriminating against culture’s and sub-cultures whose members practice brutal honesty, self sufficiency, personal responsibility, transparency and commitment to root cause problem solving, whose lifestyle’s do not contribute to overpopulation and overconsumption; whereas it legally rewards cultures and subcultures whose members practice political correctness, sycophancy, hypocrisy, parasitism, denial of responsibility, self deception masquerading as ‘privacy’ and ‘dignity’, and a focus on Public Relations Image Management parasitism.

[46] The socio-political problem solving/arbitration resolution system of the Matriarchal Mosuo culture in South West China is plausibly the most credible on planet earth. The people of Mosuo have no rape (not even a word in their language for rape, because it does not exist), no murder, no suicide and no unemployment; as a result of abiding by (a) the laws of nature and tribal control of population and consumption, and (b) the laws of human nature, in terms of public problem solving, where members are not allowed the luxury of self-deception and hiding from their self inflicted problems, behind fragile ego masculine insecurity definitions of ‘dignity’ and ‘privacy’ and ‘intellectual property’.

[47] Metaphorically Anthropocentric Jurisprudence’ political, legal and academic Emperor chefs’ are following the cooking laws for road kill stew; while attempting to convince the citizens entering their court rooms, that the Justice being served is ‘credible’ Crème brûlée justice; when in fact its just maggot filled road kill stew.

[48] The only citizens who consider Anthropocentric Jurisprudence ‘credible’ are those who psychologically, emotionally and intellectually consider the cartoon bombs made by Wile E Coyote the Road Runner as ‘credible’ applications of the laws of physics related to bomb making. National and International bodies applying concepts of Anthropocentric Jurisprudence to their ‘arbitration / problem solving’ procedures, should be taken as ‘seriously’ as Laurel and Hardy; in terms of their ability to accurately apply the relevant natural or scientific laws, to attain a specific related required result of inter-human and intra-species harmony and balance. If the consequences of Anthropocentric Naked Emperor Syndrome Jurists were not so tragic, it would in fact be beyond Laurel & Hardy hilarious.

[49] In our Post Peak Natural Non-Renewable Resources (NNR) world, any individual, organisation, panel, politician, political party, wanting to be considered a ‘Credible’ advocate for Root Cause Problem Solving requires them to (a) confront geopolitical reality of Peak Non-Renewable Resources (NNR) and implement (b) Sustainable Environmental Security plan in accordance with the Scarcity as cause of Violent Conflict principle, by (c) Determining the answers to the questions:

[49.1] If Peace and conflict are defined not as descriptions of behaviour between nations, but as trends describing social conditions. Put differently: Conflict is not defined as the violence between neighbours and nations, but as the unwanted intrusion of one person’s existence and consumption behaviour upon another person.

[49.2] There are two kinds of conflict: Direct: he took my car, he enslaved me, he beat me, he raped me, he killed me; and Indirect. Indirect intrusions are the by-product of other people's behaviour. ‘All the trees on our island were consumed by our grandparents,’ is an indirect intrusion of a past generation on a present one. ‘The rich people raised the price of gasoline and we can't afford it,’ and ‘The government is offering people welfare to breed more children’ are current economic and demographic intrusions by one present group on another present group.

[49.3] System conflict is the sum of intrusions experienced by each constituent, summed over all the constituents. A measure of the existing global conflict is the sum of six billion sets of intrusions.

[49.4] Using this definition of conflict, to establish whether their nation and planet earth’s socio-economic and political system is moving towards peace or towards conflict; based upon the questions:

[49.5] How many children per family leads to peace; or conversely how many children per family, contributes to greater resource scarcity, and exponential increase in conflict, i.e. an individuals’ ‘breeding war combatant’ status? [According to the research of Dr. Jack Alpert , the answer is one child per family leads to peace]

[49.6] How much consumption relative to the nation’s footprint carrying capacity leads to peace; or conversely how much consumption relative to the nations bio-capacity per person, contributes to greater resource scarcity, and exponential increase in conflict, i.e. an individuals ‘consumption combatant status’?



Interest of the Amici:

[9] Although Amici does not share Complainant and Respondent’s Libertarian Capitalism ideology; Amici has been a vocal supporter of Dr. Paul and his supporters, based upon the assumption that Dr. Paul, ‘practiced what he preached’. Put differently that he subjectively sincerely believed his ‘ideology’, and was not deceiving his followers.

[10] Amici’s support for Dr. Paul, was consequently based upon the fact that he was an ‘honest libertarian’, or ‘honest capitalist’; that if he was elected, he would be an honest representative of the specific ideologies he endorsed.

[11] Amici’s support included setting up and running the following Facebook groups: Stop Foreign Aid to Africa 4 Ron Paul ; UFO Disclosure Truthers 4 Ron Paul , South Africans 4 Ron Paul Revolution , Peak Oil Survivalists, Ishmael Tribalists and Secessionists 4 Ron Paul , Truth Doctors 2012: Ron Paul & Walter Williams .

[12] Amici is the founder of CommonSism ideology, which considers the (a) foundation of WIPO’s Negotiation and Arbitration procedures and doctrine, (b) Fundamentalist Unscientific Belief in the concept of ‘Intellectual Property’ to be in error, and lacking in arbitration and problem solving credibility, in as far as its (c) legal principles and stare decisis jurisprudence is founded upon the Natural Law errors of Anthropocentric Jurisprudence. (Annex A: Draft of CommonSism Principles provides a reasonably comprehensive draft of CommonSism’s principles and criticisms of the errors of Anthropocentric Jurisprudence)

[13] In Amici’s worldview, the problem is not left vs. right, or capitalism vs. communism, but the absence of honest liberals vs honest conservatives, or honest capitalists vs honest communists, not to mention honest arbitrationists and jurists.

[14] The problem is that we are drowning in Edward Bernaysian PR consumptionists: Bullshit the Public Relations liberals, conservatives, communists, capitalists, libertarians, etc. An honest capitalist has no problems resolving any problem with an honest communist. There is no need for ‘diplomacy’ (deception) or Bullshit the Public Relations of their respective followers, between honest capitalist, communists, liberals and conservatives.

[15] Practice what you Preach/Honest [ideologists] are interested in brutal honesty with their followers, in followers who are adults and capable of hearing constructive criticism brutal honesty, who clearly and succinct in simple language, clarify their respective ideological perspective; so that there is no doubt about their ideological perspective. Practice what you Preach/Honest [ideologists] insist on only being elected by people who unequivocally understand their ideological platform. If any voting age individual lacks the intellectual, psychological or emotional capacity to hear constructive criticism, and the will to practice what they preach, to implement root cause problem solving, they should fuck off to be deceived, brainwashed, bullshitted, and betrayed by the worlds litany of Bullshit the Public Relations Capitalist, Communist, Liberal, Conservative, Libertarian, Anarchist, etc Political Whores.

[16] Bullshit the Public Relations [ideologists] are interested in vagueness and ambiguity, in PR deception of their followers, so as to bullshit followers, who would not have supported them, if they had practiced brutal honesty. They intentionally avoid clarifying their respective ideological perspective, so that there is greater doubt and latitude for as many individuals as possible to be deceived into following them. Bullshit the Public Relations politicians insist on deceiving as many followers as possible with bullshit, in order to get themselves elected.

[17] Getting elected -- and egotistically or socio-politically profiteering from their election -- is the primary goal of Bullshit the Public Relations [ideologists]. Their ideology is no different from their underwear, It is their tactical propaganda arm. It means fuck all to them, except as a tactical propaganda bullshitting mechanism to manipulate and deceive the followers of any particular ideology to elect them to power.

[18] A majority of the worlds politicians are Bullshit the Public Relations [ideologists], whose only concern is getting elected, and parasitically socio-politically benefiting from their (a) Bullshit the Public Relations Image management pretend problem solving rhetoric; and (b) divide and conquer emotional manipulation of followers into capitalism v communism, and liberals v conservatives camps.

[19] Ron Paul was considered to be possible ‘honest libertarian’, who may possibly welcome a political revolution from Bullshit the Public Relations Parasitism, to Radical Transparent Brutally Honest Problem Solving.
