'I'm having a very good crisis,' says Soros as hedge fund managers make billions off recession…George Soros said the current economic crisis has been the culmination of his life's work… George Soros, who predicted the global financial crisis twice before, was one of the few people to anticipate and prepare for the current economic collapse… Soros: I’m having a very good crisis, The Daily Mail, 3/26/09
In your office, there must be at least one person who uses poisonous gossip to create an artificial crisis around the cubicles, then presents a solution, usually a bitter pill, that just so happens to mostly benefit the person who prescribed the cure. Parasites operate this way, sometimes with devastating effect. George Soros has been a financial parasite on crises often of his own creation for decades. Look at the British banking crisis of a decade or so back, the mess in the Ukraine, his efforts to intervene in American politics. Was it all for the good? He made $1.1 billion in the crash.
Parasites have a gift of seeing profit in what for everyone else is ruin. A naturalist might describe them as a hideous necessity. One would hardly fault the maggot for eating a corpse. To avoid parasites, good or evil, one must not fall ill and therefore become a target for worms. Part of that preventative health care includes acknowledging that, if you have something you treasure, there is probably someone out there who wants to take it away from you.
