Why pirate? Get Netflix for $9/mo. (includes streaming movies and also DVD's to your mail at same time - no late fees either) or watch current TV
episodes on Hulu for free. Help the companies out that offers services at a discount. That will move the market toward a cheaper price, and will
satisfy needs for cheap entertainment. For music get Pandora app for your smartphone or an app like it. The music is free.
Pirating costs you in bandwidth services which is something. So why not work wthin the system and help us all change things.
Just a friendly suggestion.
I do not believe any system can stay centralized. It always gets too big to stay under control. Life is full of diversity for a reason. Infinite
diversity is stronger than everything that is the same. Hence lifeforms are different and when one form of life dies out, all life does not die out.
Overlord control of the web can not sustain itself in the long run. Social websites are sometime being used to track and potentially control us.
Facebook, MySpace, heck maybe even ATS is monitored or run by the CIA.
Think about it. The CIA can just have a post started here and the ATS members will do their work for them by searching the web to answer a question or
maybe they watch for timely topics posted by members as a way for them to keep watch over the web and us. This would work on any social site. However,
as effecient as that sounds, it still will not be enough.
If TPTB super control the web, it will cease to create business and sales because people will become fearful of using it. In essence the web will end
and people wil seek out a new form of communication free of the choking controls.
