The Netocrat: The Present Economy is Becoming the Pirate Economy. Why not Capitalize on the Future?
Property is losing value all the time. Music has become worthless. People do not buy music anymore: they donate to the record company because of social obligation. Pirating is the most efficient way to expand your own resources and with a growing poor population, piracy is going to grow.
This is similar to a conversation I was having with a friend a couple of weeks ago. That was more along the lines of how music piracy ignores sentimental value in that people are paying more for things they personally value less than music. While this argument is more along the lines of the benefits of capitalism, it kind of goes along those lines. The bit about Kickstarter at end reminds me a lot of Renaissance style financing, though crowdfunding gives more equal power rather than allowing the rich to set the standards of everything.
