Your comment,

"Someone has to decide what goes into a Journal or what grants to fund,"

seems to assume that funds will be coercively taken and reallocated. Is such theft acceptable? I think you know very well that if individuals decided what to do with their own resources generated from their own labor (which are part of their life---that is to say, if we were able to exercise our right to life), then these journals would not exist as they do because the resources would not be poured into them, and our lives of leisure as academics would not exist either. We would be forced to produce something to feed ourselves instead of just living off the dole.

As it stands, anyone who actually works to support himself and this evil system is a fool. At least it is an unsustainable system which will probably come to an end at some point.
