    How evil happens.

It is clear that there is a “follow the money” element to the whole Covid thing but this is not new or surprising. It is a simple fact of modern civilization. There is NO corner of the economy that is not totally influenced by the money.

My point is that everyone is doing just what the situation calls for. The fact that that might be harmful or at the very least not at all beneficial to society is secondary to the absolute need for everyone to make money and keep making more and more of it. This is not aberrant behavior, it is appropriate behavior. Thats the rules of the game. To blame someone for being successful at playing the game is what we call bad sportsmanship or sore loser. We call these people evil but in reality they are the winners!

If we don’t like it we have to stop pointing at the winners of the game and saying “thats not fair” , thats bad, BooHoo. No! If we want to stop it we need to change the rules of the game.

We need to change the rules of the game.

We need to change the rules of the game.

We need to change the rules of the game.

I think you are right about that but on a human level, there is something sick about a guy with 150 billion dollars talking about making “profits” from vaccines.

ONE “game” is to be successful and make money, there’s nothing wrong with that. Its a good thing. But at a certain point, you’ve won the game and you need to pivot to another game. There’s lots of games. The money and success game is only one. There’s a family game, there’s a spiritual game, there’s a health game, there’s a happiness game, there’s a doing good for other’s game.

If you are still seeking “profits” with 150 billion dollars, you need to be put away and treated for mental illness. Its like a boxer who, after knocking out his opponent, wants to keep punching him. You’ve got that much money you’ll never need anything, you’re kids, grandkids and great great grandkids will never need anything. Money, rather than being a driving force, should now no longer be an issue in your life ever again. You need to go in search of other things.
