    Money can't buy friendship, and it sure can't buy family. And before Delphinus comes in to try and refute this, keep in mind true friends stick with you through thick and thin, meaning they're there whether you can give them money or you're asking for it yourself.

    Why is causing problems for other people morally wrong?

    Come on, Delphinus, stop being a sociopath. Grow up, would you?

    Their deeds I judge and much condemn,

    Please yourselves, say I, and they
    Need only look the other way.
    But no, they will not; they must still
    Wrest their neighbor to their will,
    And make me dance as they desire
    With jail and gallows and hell-fire.
    And how am I to face the odds
    Of man’s bedevilment and God’s?
    I, a stranger and afraid
    In a world I never made.
    They will be master, right or wrong;
    Though both are foolish, both are strong.
    And since, my soul, we cannot fly
    To Saturn nor to Mercury,
    Keep we must, if keep we can,
    These foreign laws of God and man.
    Individualism is a valid philosophy, isn't it? Looks like sociopathy, but is actually the opposite. Accepting the blind rule of a society that increasingly encourages apathy and stoicism is far more sociopathic than challenging it.

    Why don't you try to make yourself useful and help people instead of trying to hurt them.

    Yes, but can you get by in your life just by stealing? Can you steal a house, enough clothes, food, money and entertainment to live on? When talking about stealing as a replacement for money, it's not very accessible. Also it's really not healthy for our society to think that way, either. Money exists to ensure a negotiable exchange of commodities.

    Okay, this is where the black and white splashes some heavy grey on it. If you download a game illegally from a site that is not affiliated with the game creators, you're not cheating them out of any money. They're not paying for server hosting on your behalf, and you aren't stealing physical merchandise from a store, denying another customer a sale and the studio their money. It's as if you had never even heard of the game before - or, better yet, if you were reluctant to purchase it fully at first and then played it, loved it, and bought it, the company is in some cash even. That's what I did for Mass Effect 2. I illegally downloaded from a third party, and then loved the game so much that I'm now a proud holder of a legitimately purchased CD Key obtained via Steam. So, long winded way to say: online media stealing really isn't even all that bad.
