Furthering Class warfare

From another post I placed on slashdot

The patent system, for as much as it gets bad press, offers the little guy (independent inventor) a chance to get ahead. With no patents, anyone with money can make a clone of an existing product and do whatever they want with it, including selling their clone as the original item. Such a patent-less system undoubtedly favors the wealthy who have access to the means to do such things.

And when you accelerate the acquisition of power, you encourage oppression in the name of profit. This leads directly to fascism for the people.
