Don’t Pay The Ransom

Ransom has been a thing since, probably, the invention of rope. It is certainly referred to in The Holy Bible. In the Old Testament, it referred to as payment of some sort to release someone, and in the New Testament, it refers to “Christ’s gift of Himself as a ransom for many”.

No such thing as an original sin. A notion that is continuously being challenged in the cyberspace.

To get some perspective, the largest ransom ever paid for the release of a person (according to the Guinness Book Of Records) was $1.5 Billion in 1533 for Atahualpa, Emperor Of The Incas.
