booksellers/publishers in the end thinking "well, if i just give it all away for free i won't have the means to produce them anymore", which is true, and what ultimately allows capitalism to continue. Freely giving is my favorite form of economic exchange, but then there's basic survival and the fact that someone likes what you do and even gives you money to help you continue it doesn't guarantee that you will be able to keep doing it...there's obviously the continued tension between the wilder ideas of anarchists and the more "pragmatic" market liberalism.

I like writing but clearly my words don't matter that much in the end, and even though im working on continuing this hobby so that it maybe becomes a profession or gains some sort of a following, i cringe at the idea of taxing other people.
