Piracy only gets slack from me when you have a ridiculously old game you want to play that even GOG or steam doesn't carry. and even that's a stretch. (Or if you already have a working hard copy of the game in which case the question is raised why pirate it in the first place)

If you don't want to support a developer don't buy the game simple as that. But dont pirate it, that has a negative effect, becuase Devs do get numbers roughly on how many people pirated it (very rough) which tells them they should keep making the games just make them Multiplayer dependent as hell or Put loads of anti piracy software into it (both in most cases), which makes the games even worse since they are spending less time making them and more time protecting them.

I suppose piracy under very specific circumstances:

A) You own the game, but your disk has become broken or corrupted and you can not longer use it to install and/or play the game, or you have lost your key.

B) The developer that made the game was put out of business by the publisher, and can no longer receive profits from a sale of the game.

C) The game cannot be found through legal means because it is so old and not carried except in specialty stores, where you have to luck into it being carried.

I only support piracy when a bunch of people dress up like pirates, raid a video game store and escape via boat.

The honest truth is not a fuck ton of people will do that. Most will download it, play the fuck out of it, then uninstall and never buy it. So in short Pirating.

I'm a bit confused how you went from piracy to religion so fast. I guess LP works in mysterious ways...

Alightly off topic but, apparently Piracy (Copyism) has become a legit religion in Sweden with about 3.000 members world wide.

From DN (a swedish newspaper) google translated. The entire article can be found here: ww w .dn.se/livsstil/att-kopiera-digitalt-nu-erkand-religion
Just remove the spaces. FYI it is all in Swedish.
The Netpirates own religion, kopimismen, has been officially recognized as a religion in Sweden. "Copying and dissemination is one of our core beliefs," said kopimismens priest Isaac Gerson.

The cohesive elements attributed to organized religion can be found elsewhere, in other ideologies and philosophies, good or bad. It's done more to erect barriers than tear them down, that's for sure. Knowing people, we would find other reasons to kill each other, religion is just a particularly nasty beast.





By proxy, social animals cooperate when there's no indication they practice any form of religion. Why would they need to?

The trick is to demonstrate how our cooperation is any different from dolphins working together to catch fish, or monkeys when they pool their efforts to increase their own chances of survival. If you mean cooperate on a macro-scale, sure, people get behind anything, football teams for instance. Us VS Them mentality rules.

Ring, you're beating a dead horse. This topic has been discussed to death. The OP question was dumb. I don't think anyone notable supported the idea that religion was necessary for cooperation.

Then read the thread, identify that the topic is old and concluded, and move on.
