Did that title get your attention? Good. I had hoped that it would have. The truth always hurts—although it will always bring us closer to reality whenever we are reminded of it and willing to accept it. The truth, that is.

And we thought it was only politicians who lied and cheated their way into our lives.

Our own form of lies and cheating consumes us like a shadow in the night down a long, dark alley.

That is why we want these dishonest politicians in office: we need them to justify our own misgivings. And guess what? They know it. ‘Never forget that fact.

If you have ever copied an album of music for free—you have cheated. If you downloaded some software and made copies for your friends and they accepted it; you’re both cheaters.

If you know that your children are downloading songs, or games off of the Internet without paying for them, or if you know that they are ‘file sharing’ (Peer 2 Peer) Hollywood and Indie movies, then you have accepted the fact that your child is a thief.

You raised them. They learned from you: your good points and your not so good points.

The idea behind a ‘copyright’ is to protect a person or person's rights to the creation of that which has been copyrighted.

You have to pay for something that you do not own.

People from all walks of life in all counties in this dubious, immoral 21st century are lairs and cheats.

We have become a world of lairs and cheats, although many of us refuse to admit to it.

One person, of whom I addressed this topic to, wrote me, “If they don’t want their music or movie copied, or, okay, I'll say it, 'stolen off of the Internet,' then they should not have put it on the Net to began with.”

Wow. ‘Real brainy guy. ‘Kind of daunting, though, actually.

Have you ever actually read that FBI Warning logo that appears on all movies, musical CDs, games and softwares to name but a few? It's a 'crime' to steal other people's copyrighted work.

Creating a song is work. Making a movie is work. Although in the writing of the idea of a movie, or of a song is the real work.

Therefore, I ask the obvious question: “Why has the world become the very thing we despise the most in our political leaders? Are we not made of the same clay?
