This reminds me of The Right to Write by Don Hensley. And the essay is a "plagiarism" (so to mock people) of The Right to Read by Richard Stallman.

But I have a feeling this isn't what you are looking for.

interesting thought...or is it a media generated obsession to be the "first" to do something. "such an such is the oldest man to ever climb the mount everest...from USA...today...in a red tunic!"

i guess one neednt be bothered about running out of the possibility originality in the sphere of writing. the 26 letters of the alphabet can be stringed togather meaningfully in so many ways (left to you maths whizzes as an excercise) that we neednt be worried for many tens of thousands of years
