You know what? I occasionally listen to the few low digit Slashdotters who bother to hang around. Sometimes they have something to offer, either through experience or through some strange osmotically gathered wisdom.
However, concerning this comment:
What. The. Actual. Fuck. Is nobody allowed to do what they do BECAUSE THEY SIMPLY ENJOY IT? Must everybody be forever beholden to the GOLDEN FUCKING DOLLAR? What kind of sad fucking world do you even live in? Must EVERYTHING be paid and even SUFFERED for?
"Do what you love and the money will follow" vs "do what this small protectionist market wants and fuck you" and you seem to actively choose the latter? You would actually PREFER to have people working as cab drivers because they have NO OTHER SKILLS than having experienced, happy and motivated "amateurs" who know their territory, know their clientele and, most importantly, understand their market?
If your country isn't bankrupt, it's a stroke of luck, because you and your ilk are completely and utterly redundant. Enjoy your bizarre take on protectionism while it lasts. I truly hope for your sake that your retirement isn't far off because I think you might have already lost your marbles.
