This is so beautifully put.
“If you’ve never experienced it, “free” just seems like a lower number on a slider that has “half-price” in the middle. But free is not a number…
“Free” is something different than “less.” And free is not less than cheap. It’s something else entirely.
Instead of education, try thinking about love. There are people who pay for love. Some pay a lot, some pay a little. But let’s be honest: everyone knows that the moment you start paying anything, it’s not just love plus money. It’s something else entirely, and the problems in paying aren’t solved by paying less than others.”

Sample text“When a free option is available in a market of paid alternatives, far more people will choose the free product, often by an order of magnitude or more. Asking people to pay unnecessarily is asking them to behave irrationally and against their own immediate best interests, even if it’s probably worse long-term.” – Marco Arment
