Social Media Feedback:
Ron Myers: Want to make really big money? Get into a “business” (racket) where people get easily hooked. Insidiously remove one’s power of choice and self respect, and by all means grab their money. Sell sex, violence, (sell anything using it). Hook ’em on rock. Fatten them up on unhealthy food, then “cure” them on prescription drugs. Flog tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, fast flashy cars, credit sharks, unscrupulous lawyers promising to turn your injury into a handsome settlement. Sell by flattery, seduction. Sell ’em impossible dreams! Sell, sell, invoice, collect, whether or not you can deliver. That’s today’s perverted world.
Should we now add gambling to the mix? Sure! Why not? If YOU don’t sell it, billboards, digital media or somebody else will profit, in this unscrupulous world of lust, pride and filth, run by narcissists without pity, compassion or empathy. After all, “I’m entitled” to win. The world owes ME a good living.
Everything revolves around ME, my business, my bottom line. Broken homes, ruined finances and lives, damaged kids?… who gives a damn… as long as my racket (excuse me… “business”… makes profit. Welcome, folks, to capitalism run amuck!
