Re: Why isn't Internet free for everyone yet?

On the subject of politics and finance--I thought the story Ayn Rand's Lord of the rings amusing.

You may not agree with the political bent of this blurb--but you may find it amusing none the less:
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
