If one of your wells screw up and you wreck an entire region of the planet, just throw billions at it and apologize, you can always find a way to jack
up oil prices later on and make your money back.
Is lumber your business? Just go a few miles into the woods where the people driving by can't see you and chop away, your rich and the trees belong
to you. Don't forget to pay whoever to keep that pesky hemp plant that most anyone can grow illegal, Paper made from decades old trees is so much
Want to just buy a place in the country and grow and raise your own food? Sounds nice. Except your going to have to come up with property taxes every
year or it will be taken from you. You see, the rich and powerful own the world and you are going to pay rent to live on the face of it. ( Unless your
homeless and sleep on a park bench somewhere, then they don't bother you as much.)
Got the money for a fleet of whaling ships? Have at it, their yours not mine. Don't forget to give estimates on how many are left from time to time
because only you would know where every whale in the ocean is.
Own a company that makes hybrid food products and chemicals to spray on them to keep the weeds down? Good enough for everybody else to eat, but I
wonder if that same food makes it to your plate.
Got a company that dumps factory waste into rivers and lakes and pollutes the air? Not to worry, your probably wealthy enough not to live anywhere
near it. A nice country estate on a clear lake with lots of trees is more like it. And don't forget the private security force to head off anyone who
wanders on to your private land. A stern warning and a foot in the ass will make sure they don't make the same mistake twice.
I suppose I could go on but this is getting rather depressing.
