"Why don't you read M. Scott Peck's book "People of the Lie" before you make any decisions about whether or not you believe in evil.
I have a problem with people who hate people who have gained financial wealth. To assume that everyone who has done so is deceitful and a cheater is utterly absurd."

-- 1948

Hi Brooklyn,

That was not my intention at all. I didn't make anything close to a blanket statement.

However, there are numerous examples that can be cited where people use their position of power, or intentionally try to deceive potential clients, for financial gain. I think that's sinful.
