This is not about China so anyone harping on such a thought will feel the wrath they deserve as cold war throwbacks, it actually is about how society has become perverted as a machine and how artists have often for the most part accepted it. It is my slap in their face for with all the slanders I have endured and blacklistings I have suffered they in their control of those institutions which may oppose such attacks do little and in stead play the dupes in what was the cold war and today is merely oppression.

ISBNs are used as a means of book censorship in the People's Republic of China. For a printer to legally print a run of books, they must have an ISBN, which are assigned in blocks to state owned publishing houses. However, since the 1990s, this means of censorship has become much less effective as state publishing houses, which have been weaned from government subsidy like all state owned enterprises, will now sell ISBNs to the highest bidder without regard to the content." (Wikistupidity)

But little if anything has been said about such instruments of oppression in other countries, intrinsicly I believe organizations like the ACLU, PEN, ASCAP, NAMI, and AI have been oppressions's greatest friends while they fund raise and make claim to the contrary.
Intrinsiclly I hate being asked for my ID, my social security number and I am against any form of indexing as it is related to publications including:

ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) CODEN (An identifier of serials, still in use by libraries, but replaced by ISSN for any new work) DOI (Digital Object Identifier) ISAN (International Standard Audiovisual Number) ISMN (International Standard Music Number) ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) ISWC (International Standard Musical Work Code Library of Congress Control Number SICI (Serial Item and Contribution Identifier)

I address the issue almost religously from the position of a pamphleteer So....oooo why the hell do I have to pay as an author publisher for the bullet of my own execution?

Why is the internet administered by quasi-supra-intra-governmental agencies at the beckon of international monopolies and police military intelligence oppression which is the prime if not only issue as we have no rights?
