People in this country have an annoying fixation on making money. It’s not wrong to make money, but at the same time, the ability to make money doing something doesn’t make it right. I don’t want to talk about money as a moral issue though. I want to talk about it on a personal level. People should do what they’re interested in totally apart from making money. Anybody who does something for a living simply because of the money is wasting his or her life. Why does it matter how much money you have? You still die some day. Why aren’t people more concerned with what they do with their life than how much stuff they collect?
Yesterday at work, they had a multilevel marketing seminar or some such nonsense. I vaguely remembered the concept, so I looked it up and found those two magic words: pyramid scheme. Not every multilevel marketing system is a pyramid scheme, but every pyramid scheme is a multilevel marketing scheme. They both depend on making money by recruiting people to recruit people to recruit people and so on. Whoopie, there’s a lot of money in it. I still don’t want to do it. I don’t care about money. It’s not real anyway.
