RE: First Order Logic and Semantic Web RE: NPR, Godel, Semantic W eb

If you must.  I think we have a right to that 
sort of thing but like so many rights we have, 
we need to be able to afford justice.  I'm 
not too hip on the "load a truck with nitrates 
and get their attention" solutions.

Say, tempered by the right to access and dispute.  

What can you do if an entity steals your 
identity?  The law has to provide a reasonable 
path to the resolution.

I don't think the SW gets out of control as 
long as assertions can be contested.  On the other 
hand, that logic layer may become an obsession 
for some prolog experts. 

But we don't need no stinkin' illuminati. :-)

Despotism tempered by Dynamite?
