We do not know anymore how to value what is being shared to us because it is shared to us. Everything is marketed these days. In such a place free is just free. In such a place everything free becomes outlawed.

When you are in a tribe and when you value that tribe you have to value the giftproces within that tribe. You have to know how to value what is being shared because of the sharing. Look at how we value the advice freely given in this tribe. We don’t keep it to ourselves, we enjoy sharing it, improving it, enriching it, receiving it.”

And precisely that is missing from our society.
