I’ve just realized that I’m a dinasour.
My post about stealing music has led to a lot of conversation and what I’m realizing is that I’m the only one that really believes I should pay for music. What’s worse is that it’s to the point where I look silly for buying music. My post was really about the ethics and morality of the issue as opposed to any belief that the theft is justified because the music industry on a whole is unsympathetic (they are).
The woman I sit next to at work said “ethics are so 90’s”. Our sense of morality and ethics are so flexible as to serve no true purpose. Everything can be explained away so that we can sleep at night.
What is scary is where we will be 5, 10, 20 years from now?
