So this guy created the Internet Archive and his motive was to create a free library of books or any digital media.

By doing this he managed to provide tons of free content for the world. He is not rich at all, but he created a lot of value for our society. His project is basically archiving the entire internet.

At the same period of time this other guy created a business out of selling books. Then he thought to sell more stuff. In other words, to not be kind and give people stuff for free, but to force them to trade for that stuff.

And now he is the richest man on Earth. He has more power than anyone else.

That's the winner of a trade-based society. As simple as that. Our society is producing these monsters and punishes the good people when they do not trade themselves. The story of the Internet Archive guy is a success story in the sense that he managed to keep the project alive due to volunteer help he got form others. But most will fail when approaching the society in the same tradeless manner. In other words, if you are not a ruthless trader, you will probably not make it in this world.

A sad society that humans invented.....and we have to make them aware of that and why we should give up to this primitiveness. #tromimg
