Laws and regulation

Many countries actually have laws and regulations behind paywalls. This is incredibly stupid. If you don't know what laws there is, you can't follow them. This also makes it more difficult to start small businesses.

Science

Science is a big one. Scientific research is mostly hidden behind paywalls. Each post has roughly 10-50 sources, which is also behind paywalls. Then those have 10-50 more sources. Lets imagine each scientific paper costs 30 dollar on average and has 25 sources on average.

 

- Checking all the sources for the paper would cost: 750 dollar.

 

- But to check the sources, sources would cost: 18750 dollars

 

- Lets say the average line to  find the data of the source is 5 hops. Fact checking one single scientific paper would cost: 292 968 750 dollars.

Obviously I'm being hyperbolic. It's not really that expensive and papers with to much flippy floppy sources, won't get peer reviewed in the better journals on the master journal list.

Science behind paywalls

 

Education

A lot of people give their time freely to create free educational resources for their students. What often happens is that people who wants to make money go around schools to collect this material, filter trough it and publishes it under copyright in their own names. The motivation to create and share free education, is so large I can't understand. Why do people want to post school material under copyright and how is it still economically viable. In particular material for kids?

Entertainment - Movies and Music.

This one I understand, but it's still overpriced. People generally can't afford to watch movies as their hobby. Luckily this is improving lately. Free legal entertainment, has actually started to out compete with paid entertainment. So the change had to come and will have to go even further. Youtubers are stealing the markets of the old media.

Stated clearly - Evolution education

Stated clearly courses is an absolute must for beginners in biology and for old guys. It covers the most recent research on the topic evolution and can serve as an introduction course. The combination between outdated and biased education in the US and elsewhere in the world. Has made Stated clearly series a god and necessary addition to humanity.

Evolution and genetics

Many religious people have an interest in denying evolution. This is because of how they interpret their religious books. A simple way for them to avoid crashing reality, with their god beliefs. Is to think that evolution is the way that God made humans. An explanation of their beliefs, and not an alternative. Click play below for a masterful introduction:

The main artist

This project was started and is hosted by artist John Perry. He used to have a more aggressive approach which included crushing creationists online and on youtube. But he as many other great creators like Magnabosco and people over at the Athos project, calmed down and found a better approach to dealing with the worlds problems. He says himself he could not have been happier about his project. Read more about him on the websites about page: http://statedclearly.com/about/artist/

I could not be happier with my decision to start this project. Dozens of people have since joined our team, many of them give their talents for free. Researchers in the field have contributed hours of their time, pouring over my scripts, answering my ridiculous questions over the phone, and analyzing my illustrations for accuracy. These include scientific giants like Dr. Beatrice H. Hahn who helped discover the origin of HIV, famous whale paleontologist Dr. Philip D. Gingerich, and many others.
