On Plagiarism

Originality comes from within, it comes from ideas and visions inspired by creative imaginative thinking, and if one chooses to ignore this when writing then one is soulless. Those who copy an idea and claim it for themselves have strayed from the path of wisdom, have lost their voice and are dead from the inside out.

Social media has poisoned originality, information has become regurgitated fictitious twaddle disseminated and diluted to such an extent that its point of origin, its source or author is lost in translation.

Information no longer leads to knowledge, instead it has become statistical, giving readers only status within a social framework (like, subscribe, share with friends).

An idiot can copy my work, a wise person can be inspired by it.
