Comment Obscene profits (Score 1) 204

I hate to critqie this as if it were a real paper, but...


Here's the problem: You monopolists appear to believe that you have a right to business as usual. You believe that if the rules of the marketplace change, it's not fair. You believe that you somehow deserve the private planes, the great parties, and the obscene profits.


"obscene profits" is an alert phrase. It means the writer is a borderline (or full) socialist. Once you accept that some level of profit is obscene, it opens up the question "obscene according to whom?" And usually the implication is that the person writing (or their government) should decide what is an "acceptable" level of profit.

We don't want to go down that road.
