similar. I want yours. I want the one you have, even if I already have one or many.

3. Lust: I have to have it.

4. Anger: I will hurt you to insure that I have it, and and to insure that you do not have one.

5. Envy: I hate that you have one.

6. Greed: There is no end to how much I want, or to how little I want you to have in comparison.

This, at least, does not fit the title : instead of a "historical" ebook, we have here a kind of lunatic, chaotic, vaguely militant and highly subjective not-to-be-written paper somehow talking about the internet.
Not the thing to download if you want a history of the internet, strating from Turing machine, military networks up to todays' networks.
