There is no paradox in protecting beliefs from CA, since there is no basis for the concept of CA which is essentially a racist concept.
I can only think of one area where such an idea might be applicable to protect the vulnerable.
Westerners' attempts to copyright the genomes of plants and animals found in the third world to stop the countries of the third world from using those plants and animals is economic imperialism.

Sculptor.. why is this Jain Tirthankara dressed in alien garms? Is he culturally appropriating Aliens? I am asking you because you studied History, and not because I’m being facetious.

The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite.. ~MagsJ

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

Yea, when Monsanto tried to appropriate Nature.. about that, right?

Patenting the natural, in exchange for crappy high-lectin and therefore toxic to humans by default, not superior GMO produce.

Feed the world.. cause global disaster.

Personality theory also builds off Galen. I’m not dissing all early study.

Like I said elsewhere, going back is sometimes progress.

But saying Newton was into astrology… there is no basis for it.
.

Yes there is - lots.
He was also an alchemist, and alchemy relies on astrology.
But you do not have to be "into it" to appropriate it.

This is lazy on your part.
