It runs deeper than pirate Bay
People can sit around and draw whatever conclusions they like. None of us are prophets. The admins of Pirate Bay are nobody special. if they decide to "let it go". Who cares. Someone else will gladly step up to the plate. Torrent websites mean something different to everyone. To some its just about getting something for nothing. They are no better than the same rich assholes that are getting ripped off. But to some people it's about morality. Something precious during this day of decline.
Robin Hood comes to mind here. Steal from the rich to give it to the poor. Poor doesn't always mean lack of money. It also can mean lack of knowledge. This isn't just about trading or downloading movies. It's about anything electronic. The rich people have always been well known for trying to hourde precious resources to monopolize the people. In order to charge us whatever they want to control us. It was that way 1000 years ago. It's the same today. the only difference is that there's a lot more confusion and deception involved. It's gotten harder to tell the difference between a lie and Truth.
The way I see it. The only way to solve the problem is to drain the rich of their power. That's not such a hard task considering everything is now electronic. If everyone took the time to NOT buy from the stores, corporations would collapse rather quickly. Where I come from, families have always shared everything to get the most out of something. It's smart economics. The same should apply to software, movies, etc etc. But the corporations want to rewrite everything to suit their own agendas. Politics. All money minded people sleep with one another. I can't stand rich people or anyone else who focuses solely upon money and personal wealth. Because they are no good for everyone else.
People may say that we need corporations. I disagree. Millions are going off the grid to live like our ancestors did. Freely and self sufficient. They make what they need. Instead of running to the store at every whim. We should all be living that way. If you could draw a map that connects all people and their way of life, you would see several major entities around the world draining all of us daily. To Hell with them. It's high time that we all get smarter and show them that we can play dirty pool better. All major corporations that we see printed on so many products and listed on so many networks. They can and will be drained and crushed by us. People like myself will make sure that happens. They are responsible for the moral decay around the world. Where the people who have been regarded as degenerates for centuries are now being celebrated. That won't last much longer.
