WHAT? YOU HAVE TO PAY?
The tools are cheap. And getting cheaper.
A good book has ALWAYS cost as much as a good dinner. We're still subject to the ills of capitalism.
For scholars to blame artists for these ills is either disingenuous or dishonest.
A few academics are outraged that somebody might make money off of literary machines.
Capitalism may be a bad idea. It may be evil. But it's NOT OUR FAULT.
