The Royal Society - i.e. the British Academy of Sciences - has warned that "making research freely available on the internet could harm the scientific debate". It could even lower the profits of printed journals, the society predicts, especially of the non-profit journals. :-) The Royal Society is fully committed to the preservation of the reptiles.
A free access to scientific results on the internet could also threaten feudalism itself and the leading role of the royal family in the world. Instead, the internet may encourage heretics. Prince Charles agrees that science and technology are dangerous. He expressed concern that economic progress is "upsetting the whole balance of nature." In another interview, he said that "if you make everything over efficient, you suck out, it seems to me, every last drop of what, up to now, has been known as culture."
Some observers have pointed out that Charles may have especially referred to one of the royal colonial territories where a few anarchic elements have been trying to become independent for 229 years.
Her eminence Camilla, Duches of Cornwall, also said Her excellence husband was worried about the importance of technology in modern life. He is afraid that the computers who should be our "slaves" could become the "masters" and replace the royal family.
While Prince Charles remains one of the intellectual and spiritual leaders of the modern, post-crucification world and one of the most famous crusaders against the pernicious sins called science, technology, global warming, the Internet, and the emerging political and economic trend called capitalism, he remains very modest. In previously released excerpts of the CBS interview, Charles said he was concerned about being seen as irrelevant:
- "The most important thing is to be relevant ... It isn't easy, as you can imagine ... because if you say anything, people will say, 'It's all right for you to say that.' It's very easy to just dismiss anything I say. ... It's difficult," the heir to the British throne said.
I hope that a special article at The Reference Frame will convince Prince Charles that he is relevant, indeed. Moreover, it's all right for him to say whatever he wants, especially if it improves his health and good mood. The same rules apply to all members of the Bohnice Institute and Charles deserves at least the same standards.
With all of my respect and admiration for the priviliged genes of His Excellence and His Relevance, Luboš, a vassal
