Michael Douglas / Gordon Gekko - Needs to make a series of public service ads - Ads which say that Greed is Bad that Greed is a destroyer.

How sick to think - that this creep/scum/lowlife character from a movie has been adopted as a hero.

How sick is society - when greed is promoted as good?

Gordon Gekko = Bernie Madoff = Enron = Goldman sucks = AIG = People being put out into the streets = The poisoning destruction of the environment = Economic meltdown "world wide"


One public service announcement could have M Douglas looking into the camera and asking - are you People insane? - What in the world would make you recognize Gordon as a Hero a Role Model? - Seriously Folks Are You Insane? - Greed Kills - Greed Destroys - Have you not taken a good look at the World around you? WTFU!!!!!!!

Did you ever read the book American Psycho? They made a movie of it but it didn't quite do the book justice.

I have seen comparisons drawn between a psycopath/sociopath on wallstreet or in business ( in general ) - and serial killers. Main difference pointed out was focus/interest.

With these guys, to them the crime is not in what they do, but rather in getting caught.

Incorporation, is their weapon.

Yes - the sociopath/psychopath only feels remorse for failed plans of theirs.

Time to change things, and make all their plans fail.

Nope - I have not read the book or seen the movie - the book is always so much better than the movie - much better communication of depth.
