I am amazed at what fear can propel nowadays. Fear of the President because he's younger, and trying a new approach that hasn't been tried in awhile
( People called JFK a socialist too - in my opinion, it's an age discrimination en mass by the country ); fear of a horrible terrorist attack on our
country ( "We're America! No one can hurt us! It must have been our own government and not some other "lesser" people!" ); and now fear of an
emerging way to attain information.
The reason behind the fear of "piracy" is a mortality reason methinks, and is in no way connected to people actually losing their jobs ( though this

intelligent persons, who are stuck in less than favorable situations who cannot afford to pay the blood leeches of the different entertainment
corporations, wither and die in the backwoods and close minded suburbs of America.
Information is freedom, and for one stuck in a place where there is no information, it is a slow and painful mental death that damages everyone who
could benefit from fresh insights.
