A lesson for the greedy

Thanks, David Starkoff, for a reference to a striking social/moral point which has evidently been missed or ignored by many powerful people.

I confess to having started this thought in the computer industry scene, where at least one of the prime candidates — apparently deliberately — builds their software fragile, so that they can often make more money from a customer’s suffering than from their benefit; this is not, however, the only place this destructive manner of trap is placed.

Anyone who can’t see what manner of disaster is being teed up (or continued) for both customers and the greedy perpetrator’s own self is invited to seriously study a number of kilowords of a variety of accurate commercial history before the trap totals your business (or in a few instances, it totals your life).
