@parmnparsley- So what your saying is that the struggle between the public and their access to things considered public property or "free", and the desire of commercial enterprises to want to restrict access to these things is the result of the hybridization of our economy? It makes sense, but it is a little hard to grasp.
It makes it seem like the economy cannot be controlled, only nudged (for a lack of a better word) in the right direction. This seems like it would create an economy that will ultimately struggle to remain balanced as it grows larger. I get the hybrid concept, but what I do not get is why an economy would be created that is so fragile. It seems like this hybridization between culture and commerce would only work to create a situation where growth comes from homogenization, resulting in the slow death of culture.
