The vast majority of the world population DOES live *within* their means. Only a few ones live above it, stealing/wasting world ressource as if there is no tomorrow to do it.
People get hooked to this way of life that is, in reality, above everybody means except the richests. But they don't want to live *within* their means anymore. They rather lives at next generation expense. Pirating their future.

It's no surprise they pirates software too. Cheapest and (sadly, as anti-pirating annoys only geniune customers) often the easiest way to get any software these days.
