come across, things just arent that great to say the least.
i was just thinking to myself, although i dont agree with the tactics that the big businesses have taken against individuals caught bootlegging, and
the # that they pull behind the scenes that most would want to put a spike through someones head for, we are not helping the situation.
i graduated back in 2000. stealing music was pretty big back then, and a few years before, but since then, 8 years later, people are stealing, books,
movies, tv shows, music, and pretty much every piece of priced software on the market.
what are we doing? i know its a worldwide thing, but lets just focus on the good ol u.s. Between bootlegging, and the war going on, we are #ing
ourselves over for the future. imagine what the job market would be like if bootlegging was not so got damn rampant. imagine what the world, and the
economy would be like if we were not in this war so got damn long, or at all. although the war has created many jobs, i believe it has taken away
triple that, although i have no stats to back that up, just my general observation. i live in maryland, so the job market is not so bad here. we got
dc, baltimore, virginia, pennsylvania, and new york, all within driving distance. its good #, but i think since i have been caught up in this matrix
for so long, i forget, and end up not caring about the rest of the country, or the world.
im only one man, who wont make a difference, but the thread is to make you think. what is our generation doing to preserve ourselves a good future?
our grandparents and their bigoted views are almost gone, and our parents are only about ten to twenty years from falling dead from smoking, drinking,
and stressing themselves away to death, and what we're left is with a slacker generation of thugs, and emos, who couldn't chop a piece of got damn
wood, or hold some steady morals and values to save their life.
we have been spoon fed by our parents, the government, our grandparents, and the rest of the world. i think we need to start thinking about this, and
start coming together to help build the economy, and build our futures. this is not just about stopping your torrent downloading, this is about
standing up and creating something new, something better. this is about closing out your divx player, and putting your dick back in your pants, and
picking up a book, or staying updated with your current events, from the medical field, to politics, and your rights as a citizen. even to go as far
as to start forming a group of people to help you stand up and get heard, and not just any group, but people who will help you through the ruff times,
and be there doing the good times. i know the fear is, everyone with power and money who we fight, can # my life over good if they wanted, so maybe i
should just shut the # up, but thats why you need quality in your group, not just quantity. folks that will look after each other in the fight.
20 years from now, i just dont see it existing the way alot of us might imagine. i dont see mankind following its most recent path of the past couple
decades, and turning out okay.
start planning. your grandparents are soon to be gone, and your parents learned from their mistakes, now your parents will soon to be gone, and we
must learn from their mistakes, but start taking action now for something better in the future. where you, and your kids have opportunities to be who
you wanna be: movie star, tv show host, biologist, track runner, tech geek, etc...
you might think all that is fully possible now, and it is, to an extent, but its boom is dying. your dream of saying # your suckie job, and trying
your hand at writing a script, will be met with crossed arms, for the market is dying, and minus anything short of already being in the field, or some
type of child prodigy, it just wont be a dream for you, unless we start making changes.
this is not about just blindly fighting the man. i dont mind a democratic government, judicial system, cops, music industry, movie industry, etc.. i
dont mind that, but they need to be checked. along with stopping our bad habits, we need to check them into stopping their bad habits. we need to
build a quality life, thats all im saying, or kiss your future goodbye. your own survival instinct within you knows # is not right, and is only gonna
but thats just my opinion
