Since neural manipulation or a screen being able to be on a contact lens are probably far away technology wise, that essentially leaves us with having to create something that can either draw or project a screen on a normal pair of glasses.
Once you can wear a prescription or prescription-less pair of fairly normal looking glasses that can draw/display image/shapes/text/color anywhere on the lens, then I think the actual "revolution" will take place and everyone will quickly buy and use them constantly.
I'm not arguing against legalizing drugs, I'm saying GP's argument is no good.
If you actually want to convince people on the fence (GP's comment is clearly meant only for the audience of those already convinced), it's more important to actually use convincing arguments. "Sticks hurt people" convinces no one.
"Paying money in return for receiving goods" still works fine. Most people are willing to pay if given reasonable terms and ease of access. Steam is a pretty big flagship of how to make a business that competes with pirating.
Media companies are stuck in the dark ages where instead of trying to increase value of their product/service, they instead double down on increasing revenue per viewer with horrible anti-customer policies like 10-minute unskippable ads on a DVD you bought.
