EDUCATION-ACCESSIBILITY OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

Whereas no one should be able to privatize, much less profit from, the knowledge of humanity,

Whereas monetary restrictions to accessing scientific research and literature hinder the education of students, the creation of an informed public, and the advancement of scientific progress,

Be it enacted by the Maine Green Independent Party (MGIP) that the following shall be added to the MGIP platform under the education plank, "Prohibiting the publishing of scientific literature by private companies, and instead creating a public institution that reviews and publishes scientific literature and distributes it freely to the public via the internet and public libraries."
