I was listening to the radio while driving, and another one of those commercials on how to become successful was on the air. And I started thinking about how this seems to be just another way to take advantage of these poor suckers that are going to pay their $399.99 for a seminar on how to become rich and successful. And while the odds of these guys making it are pretty low, the odds of the seminar organizer making money off these poor saps are pretty good.
So it is a change in how the poor masses are exploited. It used to be that the exploitation was more explicit. People on the bottom were told by the people on top that they will never be successful and that their lot is to toil in their condition for those who are on top. But now, the lie is reversed. The exploiters take advantage of the exploited by telling them that they can all be successful and rich.
