Business Owners: The Prolific and the Devouring

Yes, there are ethical business owners who want to leave more to their children than a gated community in a society gone wrong. When God came to earth he said, "Whatever you do for the least of these you do for me." "The meek shall inherit." "The last shall be first." Even God on Earth could not sell that brand. He also said, therefore, "Let the dead bury the dead."

The %1 are not the problem, and 99% are not the solution. As Solzhenitsyn said, "The line between good and evil is drawn through every human heart." People of good will of every economic stratum have more in common with each other than with the criminal elements of all classes. It was Wm Blake who spoke of  "the prolific and the devouring," the artist and the critic, the creator of public goods and the purveyor of the  brand.

So let us convene the prolific and help them be more so.
