Champion Free-Of-Constraint Methods Of Contribution

I'm not keen on the use of publishers.

I'm not keen on those that set themselves up as gatekeepers to a discipline or to contribution.

Serving the public means serving the writers and the purchasers. The filter must be by the purchaser, not by the publisher or the distributor or by the bookshop. If traditional, physical means of delivery cannot deal with delivering this freedom, then they limit freedom.

I would like to champion the free-of-constraint methods for contribution as much as possible.

I want to avoid all means by which I am required to ask permission to make my contribution. I want to use, to patronise means that enable contribution, not those that limit it.

These means must entail that the cost of delivery is ever reduced through scale, automation and related technologies.
