You should Value Your Freedom

This a plea for people to value their freedom. While people are completely justified for vilifying Microsoft for their evil actions, people seem to be short sighted as they seem to forget that other companies are equally evil. Apple is equally guilty as Microsoft of distributing proprietary software, promoting anti-features in their products, promoting treacherous computing as well as promoting digital restrictions management. All this are true of other well known companies such as Nintendo and Sony.

There is really only one way to get these companies to stop abusing society: society should stop supporting abusive actions of these companies. Unfortunately, society will continue to support abusive actions as the majority of society are ignorant or amoral about the issues.

So please, value your freedom and stop supporting these abusive attacks on our freedom.
