Why have people always hated pirates?
Because they were dirty. Because they were criminals. Because they were violent. For all that, they were told dangerous for the society.
And yes, for a certain point of view they were all this. Well, they were all of this, but not only!
I know that probably you wouldn’t believe me because everybody who knows me a bit more is aware of my love towards those mythical scurvy dogs and the golden age of piracy. But this is not the moment or the place where I’ll try to explain my fondness! I’ll do in one of the next posts.
What I’m here to say is that piracy is not gone! It still exists in the world, in our everyday life. And don’t tell me “Oh, yes, what a news! We all know that! We all read the newspapers!” because I’m not going to talk to you about the facts happening in the Middle East or that kind of stuff!
I’m going to speak about those pirates that live among us and that usually are thought cool by the most.
They are not even true pirates, they are more like privateers. They’re allowed to behave like that by the established power.
For those who don’t know anything about the privateers let me explain. They were basically pirates, like the others. So they robbed, killed, destroyed villages, raped and kidnapped, all for the vile money! BUT (because it is a big but!) they were allowed to do that by the governors and trough them by the king himself who, to be honest, sit on his throne in Europe hardly knew what happened in the new world for sure. They paid the governor a percentage out of the booty or slaves to ensure their freedom in action.
Can you imagine whom I’m talking about? No, no it’s not the politician….they actually are included in the category, it’s obvious. What I’m talking about it’s something you don’t think immediately at: the management class (let’s be honest, you cannot define them otherwise) in every big company.
The biggest is the company the worse and more violent are the pirates.
I’m saying that because they behave like them, kidnapping our neurons, destroying and robbing our brains and raping our way to be.
But there is a huge difference between these new pirates and the legendary ones. And you mind, I want neither you agree with me nor that you think I totally justify the old ones.
But the matter that counts is that the old pirates and maybe the privateers as well had a moral code. Yes you heard correctly!
Although they were immoral for the most they had a code and most importantly they respected the code between them, no matter the grade you were wearing or your race or your credo. They were really the same for the code.
Apparently you have the same thing among the new pirates, but this is exactly what I hate with all my heart: appearance!
They eat each other no matter what. And everywhere is the same because what it counts is the money….but no rules, no rules in sharing the booty…nothing!
And now just do answer: which one do you think is worse?!
Talk to you soon
PS. I was editing this post when I watched this video by mistake. I think it could fit the cause.
Those are pirates too, but the worse kind. They seek kids and prevent them to think with their heads from such a young age. This is just disgusting.
But, you see, it’s not just Christians…after the last post you might thing I’m sticking on them. Here it is another nice one! (for the few who didn’t got it, the last bit was ironic!)
