I know this isn't a popular opinion, if anything, but I really just don't think there's any way to justify pirating.
I've done it twice for games but I don't tell myself that was a good decision or that "well I bought myself a sandwich the next day, so that makes up for it right?" you would have bought that other stuff anyway.
All I'm saying is, pirate all you want, but don't ******** yourself that it's "sharing" or that what you're doing gives "the system" the finger. You're doing a ****** thing and you should know it, just like I know I did a ****** thing.

I don't bother pirating **** myself, and disagree with it from a moral perspective, but the concept of "lost sales" is flimsy at best. Even with services like Netflix and Steam available to the masses, tons of people still consume their media illegally; most of them simply wouldn't use it if they absolutely had to pay for it.

Not to mention the fact that piracy often delivers a better experience than paying. No advertising, nothing phones home, DRM is cracked for flexibility, and there are even hobbyist developer teams like the late alterIWnet that actually added extra features to existing games. People might be more sympathetic to the media industry if they didn't punish the **** out of people that, you know, actually paid for the content.

not exactly... because there is money that should be in the economy but it is not. Say there is a movie and shoes. He saves 10 dollars by pirating the movie instead of buying a ticket to see it in theaters and he spends that 10 dollars he saved on a pair of shoes. You could say "hey the money he shouldve spent is still going towards the economy" which is true but he should of had to pay 20 bucks total. There is no way to steal things and not effect the economy

They can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces is so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

I always thought of piracy as sort of a "worldwide library" or just "lending" to your friends.
One person buys the DVD, and then they share (torrent/stream) it to friends (you guys, also me), and then they get the DVD back (we delete the movie if we decide not to keep it).
Trying to stop piracy is a little bit like trying to stop people from lending, or trying to shut down libraries.
