Without copyright you couldn't monetise your knowledge
There are many individuals and organizations that place their work in the public domain, use a lesser form of copyright (CC, GPL), or otherwise give their rights away. They monetise their knowledge by being proficient or pioneering. Then there are people who want to control the knowledge but fail to monetise it.
... and so wouldn't publish publicly.
Money is not the sole reason for publishing. I would also say that it isn't even a top reason for publishing. Recognition, fame, sharing, sense of achievement, and sense of community are all great reasons why one would publish. I publish comments without payment. I publish blogs without advertising revenue. I publish source code without a licencing fee. Why? Because I value the betterment of society higher than having the freedom to have someone else water my lawn.
Why don't they flee to other Muslim countries?
Because many of those countries have the same regimes that they are fleeing from.
The second hit is a piece in the Wall Street Journal.
The piece mentions nothing of immigrants, Muslims, or anyone else filing a petition or calling for a ban.
It does mention that Christian Conservatives want to exclude all immigrants from festivities and Bavaria in general.
Having read ALL the first 20 links, it appears that the petition to ban Oktoberfest was submitted by the same Christian Conservatives and that all names and signatures were fraudulent. But I guess since these fraudsters aren't brown, we can now pretend the petition never happened.
Salem Witch Trials, Mass Murder of Scientists, Islamophobia, 2007 Boston Bomb Scare, and now this.
The teacher confiscated the "bomb" which sat in their drawer until the end of class when it was taken to administration. If the teacher truly believed that the device could have even remotely been a bomb, they would not have touched it, would have evacuated the school, and would have called bomb squad. The teacher, the administration, and the police are complicit in perpetuating a fraud - a fraud against a child.
Even in the case that the clock resembled a "movie bomb" or was purposely contracted to do so, the child did nothing wrong as long as he didn't hint at it being a bomb or use it to threaten anyone. There are plenty of clocks on the market that resemble a bomb. Yes, it may have been a lark. Yes, it may have been a protest to create awareness. No, it wasn't malicious. No, it wasn't threatening. And no, it obviously wasn't convincing.
I seriously hope that he follows in his father's footsteps and keeps challenging the status quo.
We all like praise, but a hike in our pay is the best kind of ways.
