(stealing), the owners of the company will close up shop due to a lack of profit
Education is not and had never been about making more money. What we had been taught were only experiences shared by our ancestors who had given
freely so that mankind may improve and progress upon what had been achieved.
The masses have no grudge about paying for improvements talents. Nothing is free is something everyone understand, and would gladly pay a bit more to
experiene something different, an escape from the drudgeries of life.
But what had happened today is that the masses being made suckers and taken for a ride by paying obscenely more and never endingly more as each day
progresses. It never seemed to be enough, and as a result, the masses while paying them more will have lesser to spend, creating poverty at all
Take the simple example of Arnold Swarznegger. I loved his acting styles and would gladly pay even $300 to watch a movie with him in it. But it never
ends, he will ask $400 from each consumer and then consistantly rising all the way. It's all about greed. When is enough, enough?
I sincerly doubt if old Arnie intended to milk the masses dry. He only seeks for fair renumeration from his bosses - the Corporations whom made much
much obscenly more than the artists and talents are being shared and paid.
It was the Corporations that milked us dry, for they refused to SHARE their profits, more money than they can ever live for several lifetimes, but
had decided behind board rooms to answer such demands from artistes and talents by simply passing on such costs to the consumers.
This isn't what Capitalism is all about or what the originator of Capitalism had in mind. This is PURE GREED by Corporations that is creating more
poverty, suffering and chaos in our world!
And mankind ultimately will strike back, one way or another....
