  •  Information results in knowledge. (3+ / 0-)

    Knowledge  can turn to power.
    Power must be reserved for the well-connected.
    The well-connected have money and will pay for the information.
    Hence anyone who tries to get information without paying for it is a thief. And worse is not only a thief from the well-connected, but is also enabling knowledge to fall into the hands of the unwashed. Who might then gain some power.

    If... the machine of government... is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. ~Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobediance, 1849
