I just read a very interesting article at Wenchiepoo’s Warehouse of Wisdom. I don’t necessarily agree with everything she writes, but she makes some really good points.
The main point (in my opinion)- There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. You can’t get something for nothing. Everything has a price. That price may not be monetary, but there is always a personal cost for everything you get. Anything described as “free” merely has the costs hidden or deferred. Anyone offering you something for free is trying to conceal the inevitable cost. Remember the sacking of Troy and beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
