Mike you arguement rides on your definition of stealing. There will
never be a majority that accepts your definition especially if you
just "fold your arms" and wait. I also assume that you, in fact, do
consider the corporations "evil" because of your applied label of
"thief" to them. Your predisposition to consider large corporations
evil and your affinity for inflamatory rhetoric leaves you difficult
to talk to. In addition, very few of my posts are really seriously
argued. Instead, a word or phrase is usually picked out as a springboard into more rhetoric. Sam seems to admire these qualities
so you will always have someeone to talk to. Enjoy yourselves.
