If you ever read into the last post with the exert from "Ode on a Grecian Urn", Keats was trying to portray how we live through the art we create, or cherish forever.
In recent developments in the US Government, we see ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) putting a lock down on p2p file sharing. No matter who you are, or what your association is to this sort of sharing, you can obviously see no harm is meant from this, that we are all just trying to associate ourselves with the wholesome things in life that make it that much more bearable.
But on the other hand you can also see why this is illegal, but why has it been left to go on for so long if its such a horrible thing? Being an 18 year old, i have never known a time where this sort of thing was completely taboo in society, i have always seen it widespread, and though this does not make it right, it still makes justifiable.
I'm not here to change the hearts of anyone reading it, I'm just here to explain why we, as people, do it.
