Compensating authors for their work is important, but lack of funds should not stop your education. Go create your own reading list.
Money is not a barrier for knowledge. The poor, at university, use scholarships to pay their tuition. In the same vein, the poor (or underfunded) deserve access to digital education for free. Torrenting is great because it opens you up to this.
You have access to more information than any other human in history, and not being able to afford it is no excuse. You can pay for books when you make enough money, but don’t let lack of funds hold back your education.
If money isn’t stopping you from reading, what other excuse do you have? Tell me in the comments.
