If I steal someones idea and used it for myself,
Im doing a good thing,
Im spreading the idea and thats important.
To who it belong is irrelevant.
If the person who the idea "belongs" gets angry,
his/her goal is not to spread a good idea,
but to make him/her self look good.
Or better yet to make him/her self look better, better than you.
By, doing this he/she creates the image that some people are gifted with creativity, that philosophers and artist are a select few,
that are better than the average person.
He/she will make people believe that they cant create,
and that they should put artists on pedestals and adore their talents,
instead of using their own.
However, people that take an idea and do nothing with it
besides putting their names under it,
are doing exactly the same; trying to make themselves look better,
even though without coming up with a good idea.
But stealing an idea might give it a new meaning,
or a better use, or lead to revolutionary ideas...
This is called (r) evolution!
To believe that an idea can totally belong to one person is ridiculous.
They will have always been inspired, influence,
affected by others or the environment they are in.
It might even be a counter reaction to something,
but without that something, the idea would have never been born.
An IDEA CAN NEVER BE PURELY YOURS!!! YOU CANT OWN AN IDEA!!!
This idea was influence by,
maybe even stolen from someone who probably stole it from someone else,
and i hope you steal it too!
