Look at advertising. It's about addicting people to become
materialistic consumers in order to enrich the owners of the
production chain and (incidentally) keep employment up. IOW, it's

Web based forums are like subscribing to 10 different newspapers

Seems that our economy is dependent on such things. I wonder how many
people either have or can even save up enough to make a purchase like

How about the people that take a home equity loan so they can take a

I've seen people who's days were severely numbered, work until they

Do you think Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, The Wright Brothers, Paul Erdos,
worked as hard as they did "for the money"?
I think it was fame(facetious), very few people think of the most
