Businessmen from hell

| No Comments

Yesterday, a friend argued (quite conclusively) why he believes that capitalism and present-day neoliberalism are really a form of Satanism, as the way businessmen act abd behave unto others seems to be taken right out of the Satanic Bible.

Even though maxims like "Only the self is sacred" or "Survival of the fittest" [source] seem to describe capitalist non-ethics, I can only half agree because Satanist principles such as "Do whatever you want as long as you harm no undeserving person", "Respect people, their territory and belongings" or "When walking in open territory, bother no one" [source] would indicate that Satanists are indeed a lot more ethical than the average businessperson. Indeed, "You can do whatever you want, but you pay the consequences" is the opposite of the business principle that "You do whatever helps you make a profit, and make sure that others pay the consequences".

This seems to be proof enough that businessmen are not Satanists, simply because they lack the necessary ethics. This, however, does not mean they're not demons from hell.

I think that I actually found proof for this today: the temperature was 38°C, unbearably hot. In the street, I encountered three men in tight business suits, buttoned-up, ties and everything. They talked to each other and seemed to enjoy themselves. No sign of sweat at all, they even seemed to feel comfortable despite their clothes and the heat.

It was totally unreal. The only explanation that I could come up with is that their usual dwellings must be a lot hotter.
