Stealing is wrong but what about
stealing a glance, stealing moments,
stealing a base,
when you get something real cheap, we say it's a steal,
Kill stealing, refers to on line games where credits or
points are given for killing an enemy
Stealing my sunshine is a song
A story rich in irony but poor in appreciation, is fit to steal.
Stealing doesn't have to be a bad thing but in some countries
it is taken literally and theft is theft.
Abbie Hoffman wrote a book in 1970's he had to publish himself cause no one else would.
It was the hippie era when every one was against establishment:
Steal This Book.
He said the title alone would stop it from being published because it invited itself to be stolen.
It basically was a survival guide in how to get things for free:
free food,clothing, furniture, transport, land,housing, education,medical care, communications,
free play, free money and free dope.
Apparently kids know how to use these methods better than adults.
I have to say I am curious and would love to read this book lol
With internet you get to find things easier.
In Quebec we had our French /English problem
so getting English books was not that easy.
In fact if you go to the library today you will only find outdated
old English books. The rest are in French.
Not very enlightening for English students who have rights to an English education.
What Abbies' book shows is that with a bit of genius thinking, people don't have to pay for anything.
Can you imagine society all using the methods of this kind of freedom?
I can see emails coming saying but we need to support rising taxes, we need to support increases in housing prices, we need to support food price increases......no we don't. We allow ourselves to be sucked in with run away politics that doesn;t work for the people it was elected by.
Like in BC for instance. Who is BC for? Is it for the people or for the foreigners who buy us out and
greedy corporations who say, move on out fella. Money talks and bullshit walks.
People have to wake up.
If you print money, you don't have to steal it and why is it wrong if people don't check the money they receive? If one pays with monopoly money and it is received as real money, how is it ones' fault?
South America has many rich people today, who are respected as money artists. lol
It makes sense and this is why so many people are doing it and world economy, can't handle it.
Also why is it ok for government to print money without the assets to back it up and not people?
It kinda goes both ways. If one can be irresponsible then so can the other.
Gives a new meaning to Thou Shalt Not Steal and why the 10 Commandments don't seem to apply anymore.
Law has nothing to do with religion anymore so it does not need to be adhered to.
But does it?
Why bother with law if it is not for good people?
What does it mean to be a good person in todays world?
What does it mean to steal? Is stealing legally any better than plain stealing?
Glen Ford and Marlon Brando
played in a movie called Tea House of August Moon.
Brando played a Japanese translator and Ford was sent to a small
fishing village with Brando, to build a school and to teach good values to the people.
Instead Ford was the one being manipulated into giving in to the peoples' traditions ,
means and ways and instead of a school house, swayed to use army money,
to build a tea house.
It was a funny movie.
The only bad guy was Ford who tried his best to follow orders and to please the people.
It was hard to balance right and wrong, good and bad.
One side believed in marriage, the other in geisha.
The locals stole from the so called invaders. As was explained to Ford, every one comes to give
take instead, so we hide everything before the givers come. lol
Well it was a thinking day.
I can be very spoiled with this weather right now.
Toronto had a flash flood and people were waist deep in water.
Did its' damage and went away.
