This might be the last blurb we write about file-stealing for a while, and is perhaps the most important. We've talked about many of the victims of file sharing/stealing on Body in Mind. But perhaps the biggest victim is the one we never hear about: the file thief. We're talking about the person who downloads illegal files. Downloading illegal files is NEVER necessary. Whether you are a millionaire, a working man, or you're living in your parents basement you have enough money to buy your entertainment. If you can feed yourself, and clothe yourself without stealing these things, then you can certainly buy a video or a cd for a buck at the local Salvation Army. The reason file- stealing hurts you is because it makes you a thief. Plain and simple. And if you make an honest living, stealing robs you of the most valuable thing a man can have: pride in himself. if you are proud of having your job and earning the money you do then why reduce yourself to a sneaky weasel in the dark downloading movies and music illegally? If you work hard, you should be proud of it, and of what you can buy for yourself with the money you earn. If you do not cheat your boss or employer by lazing on the job or lying about your hours then why cheat yourself? Yes, there are millions of thieves in the world, and yes they are downloading the latest and greatest music and movies. But they cannot download pride. But when you pay for what you download, you can.
