A lot of people say hacking is a good thing,what is good about stealing?
I guest it take a hacker to hack some of those peoples account and be a victim in order for them to see the the black in it all,do you agree?Some people have to be hit on the head in order to feel the pain.
Stealing is not a good thing. It is a relative term. Self defense is very important. And those who are working for self defense and defense of society and social values may have just cause. All government including USA and european government do it. In the legal terms stealing is called information gathering for self defense. So it will depend upon what side of fense you are sitting.
The word "Hacker" does not mean digital thief. It more accurately describes a person who tinkers with technology to make something old do something new.
Try to look at it this way... If there was no hackers there would be a lot of undiscovered technology that we use everyday in this day and age. digital security would not be even 50% as secure as it is and you could probably assume we would still be living with 80's technology.
Sadly, as with any knowledge it can be used for the wrong things too.
Hacking is a good thing, if it is used for the right purpose. People use hacking everyday to alter technology, and make it do what they want. We use hacking to take control of a computer, so that we can use it to its full potential, and its needs are met. When people think of "hacking" they think of internet arson and destructive measures of taking or destroying information essential to others.
Hacking is good, if used for the right purpose. As TwoDee puts it, we would not be as technologically advanced as we are now, had it not been for hacking.
Another point is that many governments, exclusively the USA and several private groups, hack information for other sources and countries, to either protect, or destroy, our interests.
Lastly all network or and computer security protection personnel actually have to learn how to hack, in order to prevent against the hack.
If it weren't for hacking, we wouldn't know how to defend ourselves, much as a military unit undergoes real life battle training, so if the time arises, it will perform proficiently.

I've been told numerous times that "creating money out of thin air" is a good thing. And when I argued against it, the "conscience of the liberal" told me I was ignorant.Then, when I pointed out that the money went straight into companies that didn't deserve it, they said...
