Until they need bailed out. The problem is not the banks alone. Like everything, the government had their hand in on it for sure

But the banks control the government...The banks can just bail themselves out. Not to mention it's the banks that print the money, not the government...

Reminds me of 'give a man a fish'.... But the end of that one is completely dumb. It costs money to teach a man to fish, and it costs money to pay for a man's fishing rod. Plus if every man wants to fish there will be no fish left

The whole point of those smart arses with the 'give a man a fish' saying is to make a man personally responsible. How is it responsible to get the taxpayer to pay to teach him to fish and pay for his rod?

Give a man a fishing rod and he can make a nice warm fire

This is up to a empathetic humane community that realizes we are all we have. So therefore a healthy community teaches each other how to get by in a cruel world.

The fact that the government is corrupt is up to us t change it. Then we can use the government as it is needed, to pull our collectives selves together as a community and help each other.

It makes for a much less cruel world.
