“You can’t have rich corporate conglomerates unless you have wage and salary workers who will work a whole lifetime and at the end of that lifetime not know any kind of economic security of any sort, own nothing but maybe a mortgage on the house or whatever, if that. So the secret to getting rich, ladies and gentlemen, is not to work hard but to get others to work hard for you.” — Michael Parenti
