There's nothing wrong with stating the truth as he sees it. It's a
very valid point of view, one that can be taken or left by whomever
reads it. The plundering of the Earth by those that we call
"businessmen" is a fact that more people should be aware of. It seems
that all sorts of immoral, selfish, back-stabbing behavior is
forgiven, if the result is money made.

Could it be denied that Bill Gates and his cohorts "zealously" perused
their goals of dominating the markets that they participate in? If
you work hard at making vast sums of money, you are called
"entrepreneur" or a "successful businessman". If you work hard at
something because you feel it is "the right thing to do", you are
often called a "zealot" or a "radical".
Yes, all is forgiven, if the money is rolling-in...
