Supposition…what are your thoughts?
Conscious, ethical profit is a wonderful thing. It’s the return on your labor and your genius. It’s wonderful, that is, until it becomes the sole motive in society. That can turn the noblest endeavors into pure evil.
The wonder quickly becomes a massive negative incentivizing things that ought not be incentivized. We often refer to profit as the bottom line, forgetting that in an enlightened society people must always be the bottom line.
