I'm going to answer that question with another question. What's better, or more fun? A world where we pay multi-national companies for an addictive substance that will kill 50% of its users, or a world where we burn those companies to the ground and grow our own? Of course, both questions are posed in such a way that there are no other options. Personally, I'd burn all the bastards to the ground, and then get a little of that old-style retribution on with those governments that see fit to patent parts of my body, even my diseases. Anyway, 'nuff chatting. I'm off to see a man about some gasoline and torches. Seb.
