[I]f you have psychopathic tendencies and are born to a poor family you’re likely to go to prison. If you have psychopathic tendencies and are born to a rich family you’re likely to go to business school.

  1. Very entertaining and good food for thought. Bluff, bullshit and bullying…hmmm. I tend to agree with the man more than disagree. I don’t hold with anyone making excuses for themselves to explain where they are at but if you have been part of the business world you know the author here has some valid points.

    But then I am not a good one to ask…I believe in the Sermon on the Mount.

    1. “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Matt. 5:5. It doesn’t match what we’re seeing, does it? But I imagine it was well received by an oppressed, poor people. How would the 99% respond?

    1. Yeah, the more I read the gospels, the more political they become.

      19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. —Matt. 6:19-21 (NIV)
