The war for the Corpostate consolidation of potential patternal knowing, patents, intellectual property, the patterns of technological potential locked behind abstract walls,
protected by real lethal force in the form of a state that has demonstrated over and over again it will AGGRESSIVELY enforce ‘violations’ of Intellectual Property, is at peak in the corn fields of Iowa, with American farmers battling against corpostates in the fight for control of the potential of technological power.
The battle between John Deere and the American Farmer is the frontline of the excess of the construct of Intellectual Property, a concept that has not been given government gun force until relatively late in our ‘civic’ development.
Intellectual Property as a law that states are willing to enforce, let alone create, would not come about until possibly as late as the late 18th Century, with the earliest record of Intellectual Property as law occurring somewhere in the late 16th or early 17th centuries.
There are arguments to be made for the creation and enforcement of such a concept as intellectual property, but the question we have is this, is our current understanding of the nature of ‘patentable’ intellectual property, essentially, technological pattern potential, really adequate to our current technological reality?
Perhaps it is better to say, are our current parameters for acquiescing potential future technological patterning powers to increasingly monopolized corpostates putting human potential itself critically at risk of being too economically disadvantageous for the corpostates to allow?
In a sense, what we see emerging in John Deere versus the Farmer is a new church of states, the Corpostate, seeking to take those lingua franca bibles, those bibles written in the language of the common person of the land, away from the people.
Do you know what a typical mass in Christendom in the Middle Ages was like? You walk to church with your family, your clan, by law. It was mandatory to go to church.
There were no bibles in homes. The bibles were all in Latin and they were only held in churches, monasteries, and homes of Citadelians, which, in those days, were mostly the homes of the wealthiest priests and kings.
You went to church and stood in a dark space. There was a veil. You heard the Word read in Latin, There were bells. This was your experience, The Word was protected by the veil, which was protected by the King and his command of lethal force.
Intellectual Property is like the Word, metaphorically, and, in a sense, materialistically IS a form of The Word, for in the beginning WAS the Word, the pattern of the potential of the known.
In a Christian Cosmology, known is the pattern of action, of doing, that reflects the summation of what you believe and what you desire in emergent patternal predictability. Technological knowing comes from understanding, which is the potential pattern of the known, the action, what becomes.
A blueprint becomes a house. A technological formula for creating a highly dense battery can create a portable power that could magnify the potential of portable power range that can create devices that could allow humans to design their own powered devices that serve multiple needs. Or, behind IP walls, that formula can become a monopolistically-controlled service delivered in a ‘free’ device you have little option to develop and hold outside the grids of power these corpostates control.
John Deere is in a fight to assure it can transfer tractors, farm equipment, from devices farmers own and sustain independent of the grids of power the corpostate controls, to pay-for-service dependence on the grids of power the corpostates control.
Deere & Co. is trying to block two Iowa manufacturers from selling competing products that allow farmers to sow their fields faster.
The Quad Cities-based agricultural giant filed patent infringement lawsuits against Williamsburg-based Kinze Manufacturing and Ames-based Ag Leader in U.S. District Court on Dec. 4, alleging that the competitors’ new devices are too similar to a product Deere debuted seven years ago.
The companies are competing in the nascent field of high-speed planters, which put seed in the ground twice as fast as most standard planters. Deere asked a judge to issue an injunction, potentially blocking Ag Leader and Kinze from selling their products.
