The Fire of Invention: Intellectual Property and the Power of Human Beings
In the realm of invention and technology, what makes the difference between good and evil, prosperity and destruction, is not the material world itself but the way in which humans exercise our rational, creative powers. The Creator empowers his image-bearers to partner with Him to bring order out of chaos and prosperity out of poverty by their own radical, rational acts of creation. Our laws influence how we exercise that awesome power. Intellectual property rights enable us to do it well, for the good of all.
