Dickens vs. “Entrepreneurs”
From Charles Dickens’ “Hard Times”:
“This, again, was among the fictions of Coketown. Any capitalist there, who had made sixty thousand pounds out of sixpence, always professed to wonder why the sixty thousand nearest Hands didn’t each make sixty thousand pounds out of sixpence, and more or less reproached them every one for not accomplishing the little feat. What I did you can do. Why don’t you go and do it?”
Sounds like “Coketown” could be Silicon Valley. And this mentality could be the platform for the Republican party.
Ah, Dickens, so ahead of his time.
