@yagankiely "Actually, piracy does make a statement — it’s just the wrong statement." Ok. But why?! WHY?!?! Tell me, please, I’m receptive to arguments. But not to groundless statements!
Sorry, he hit a nerve.
@knowsbest no kidding. It was the same when he did a B&A ep. on it. Not a single argument only statements said as if his statements are facts and not simply his opinion. I had a go at it on a cidercast once.
@yagankiely But this is embarrassing. Yes, piracy is ideally not right, but come on - when has humanity ever preferred shit over gold? Makes no sense to pretend like moral is stronger than the other incentives - it’s not, and never will be.
@knowsbest piracy is only illegal because it’s illegal. There’s no necessity for it to be wrong. Illegal =/= immoral/unethical. It’s all relative & in a different future, the piracy might not exist because piracy can’t exist (legalised) or unneeded.
