    This subject brought me some curiosity in other thread where people were discussing about importing cheap products from other countries like China to sell them in their countries. Do you care about the fact that you may be ruining your country economy and growing the other country economy with this and other similar business models?

    I think this is a good subject to discuss because it can be very contradictory. I can't take a solid position in this because in one side is you and your family, and in the other side is your loved country. Anyway, this is why in my particular case I m divided when it comes to this subject:

    I live in Portugal, and I think you have an idea what's happening here. Our economy is ruined, we are in the limbo as to ask for international investment fund help or not. I m a middle (low) class citizen, and I say middle low because it's what I feel when I see our government and the private sector sharks contributing to vanish the middle classes and strengthen the distance between the rich people and poor people. In fact I think it's better to be poor and benefit from subsidies, than to be a middle class worker, work more, pay more taxes and earn a similar amount.

    As much as you want to change your life in here you can't. You know you can't count with your government to start a project you ever dreamed. The small amount of money you make is barely enough to pay your bills, so you will never be able to save to invest in other things. But this is exactly what rich people and the government wants. They want to control and own your ass, giving you as little to live your life, pay your bills (their income) and not much more.


    So why should one care about is country economy, when your own government doesn't give a fu** about your life?


    How is it for you? Would you do everything you have to do to support your family, even if that would ruin your country?

    i think the whole philosophy behind black hat techniques is that we're just in this to make as much money as we can, regardless of what kinds of damage we cause to the internet or society as a whole, as long as it's not illegal.

    what we do here is not ethical or beneficial to anyone other than us.

    I know what you mean. But every black hater has their own limits I guess. Regarding ewh**ing for example, it was allowed in here for a period but now it's not alowed. Their are things I m confortable to do that might interfer with your moral and vice versa.

    This is first and foremost a belief/mindset issue, the more you focus on what others want you to focus on - the less control you have.

    Being poor helps no one, believing that your better off that way, plays into their hands. Learn the game, not the propaganda they want you to think and believe: is the game.

    Here's one bit of the game: take 6.5 months vacation every tax year, kakizito as Portugal taxes on income generated in its territory - if you're a non resident. Spending more than 6 months of the year, outside of the country - you pay 0% on your income (as long as it's not made in Portugal by you).

    If you can not do the perpetual traveller lifestyle, then use the company option. A company (a legal fiction, another part of the game) has more rights and freedoms than a human - so take advantage of it.

    Don't worry so much. Who cares about the country and the world? I am not a hero. I only care about myself, my family and my love one. That's enough for you to "busy" about. Make sure you are always at the front of the rat-race, then no more worry about what bad thing will happen. Guest what? Most of the time, those who suffer is the one who left behind in the race. So get more Vitamin "M"oney and make yourself stronger, more powerful, healthier, happier, prettier and stop wasting time thinking about moral moral moral good bad good bad .... it will make you insane. Winner or loser is just the mindset.

    Just my 2cents
