I just wanted to know what was meant by this statement, so I know whether or not to feel guilty for screwing so many people out of their money and turn myself in to the proper authorities.
I believe it's the old "Don't hate the player, hate the game" business. i.e. Isn't it our fault as a society that we put such an importance on how much money we make, thereby leading a person to illegal means in order to "keep up with the (CEO) Joneses"? (No.) Or maybe he's claiming, like Corajudo did in a previous thread, that it's the people's fault for not diverifying their investments.
Sorry, I've been busy. I meant both. I am not absolving Lay and company of anything. They are rat bastards. I am saying that in our rush to make cash we are often our own worst enemies.
