11. lemme put it this way...

If I light a campfire, you'd be stupid to sit there freezing in the darkness. I wouldn't begrudge you the warmth of my fire. If I wanted to keep the fire to myself, I'd have built a house and chimney to surround it.

Likewise, if the person providing the wireless didn't want to share it, they should have figured out how to secure it, or hired someone to do it for them.

Back in the old days, the hippies (yes, those "dirty hippies" that so many people disparage today) ran Free Stores where anyone could come in and take what they needed, or leave something for someone else. No one went "broke" from not being a part of the corporate economy. If we all learned to share what we had, we'd be a whole lot less dependent on the corporations for our needs.

And maybe there wouldn't be a war to protest.

You can flame me all you'd like, but before you do, you might spend some time reading and studying the not so distant past, and the ideals and philosophies that existed among the hippies.
