I’ve been a businessman for almost 50 years.  It’s as difficult for me to say those words as it is for someone to admit being an alcoholic or a lawyer.  I’ve never respected the profession.  It’s business that has to take the majority of the blame for being the enemy of nature, for destroying native cultures, for taking from the poor and giving to the rich, and poisoning the earth with effluent from its factories
