Message to Wharton School graduates.

Congratulations! You graduated from the Wharton School.

My condolences.

Now, it’s time for you to get a real education.

You certainly didn’t learn anything about the business world there.

What you learned from your ignorant professors there was how to stack a board room, how to set up offshore accounts, how to ship well-paying jobs from America to slave shops overseas, how to exploit people, how to walk around like you’re one of the best and brightest, how to pull Machiavellian tricks, how to take sneaky use of Roberts Rules of Order to your benefit, how to dress for success, how to cheat fellow Americans out of their hard earned money, and how to polarize wealth in the world to your advantage.

All of that will surely make you a lot of money.

None of that will do a damn bit of good for America the Republic.

Undoubtedly, you were taught at the Wharton school that the purpose of a business is to turn a profit.

That is not true.

The purpose of the business is to add value to society.

In the old days, they would say that the purpose of a business is to glorify God.

If the purpose of a business is only to turn a profit, then it will logically lead you to pulling every immoral trick in the book in order to maximize profits.

If the purpose of the business is to add value to society, then it becomes clear that your immorality doesn’t make society better, but worse.

I highly urge you to reject many of the lessons that you learned at the Wharton School.

Stacking a board drum, pulling sneaky tricks with Roberts Rules of Order, creating arcane stock class mechanisms that favor you over the common man, and shipping jobs overseas do not add value to society. They make you rich while enslaving millions, no billions.

Empires do not benefit anyone in the empire.

They do not benefit the people being exploited, nor do they benefit the citizens in the exploiting country.

Your Wharton School is part of the University of Pennsylvania that was founded by Dr. Benjamin Franklin many centuries ago.

Have any of your professors read The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin?

Has anyone in the administration of the Wharton School read The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin?

It’s doubtful that anyone there has read what he has to say.

The essence of The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin can be reduced to two words.

The take-home message of advice that Benjamin Franklin gave to young men (and women) in order to succeed in life was the following:

Imitate Jesus.

Does this sound like anything that you learned at the Wharton School?

I know damn well that it doesn’t, because I’ve seen the fruits of the current crop of Wharton School graduates.

Jesus to you and them is a third baseman from the Dominican Republic who plays for the San Diego Padres.

Jesus is as alien to you as you are to me.

I detest you.

I detest the Master of the Universe policies that you have foisted upon the peoples of the world.

You raped the people of Indonesia.

You raped the people of Haiti.

You raped the people of Central America.

You raped the people of Africa.

You raped the people of America.

You are all about yourself and your supposed glory.

Well, you will have no glory. You will be the architect of your own demise.

And it will be a welcome demise.

Here are the lessons you should have learned.

A penny saved is a penny earned.

Save for a rainy day.

A stitch in time saves nine.

When you help others you help yourself.

Pride preceded the fall.

Love your enemies, for they tell you your faults.

He that falls in love with himself will have no rivals.

There never was a good war or a bad peace.

He that lies down with dogs, shall rise up with fleas.

Better slip with foot than tongue.

OK, I threw in a couple of my own, but no matter. They sound like something Franklin would say and believe.

Now, does that sound like any of the knuckleheads that taught you at the Wharton School? Does that sound like any of the knuckleheads in government who have graduated from the Wharton School?

Does that sound like any of the arrogant, warmongering, prideful Wharton School jerk-offs that have run up the national debt so as to glorify themselves through endless war and oppressive Third World exploitation.

I doubt it.

So congratulations Wharton School graduate. You’ve joined the club.

You’ve succeeded in becoming a loser.

By the way fuck face, did Jesus ride around in a first class chariot? Was Jesus the richest guy in Bethlehem, or Nazareth, or anywhere else? Did Jesus advocate accumulating as much money as possible? Did Jesus wear bling?

Did you know that Jesus was an economist also?

He was. He instinctively understood that when you help others you help yourself.

Have you ever thought for one second that enabling the poor and middle class would have positive rewards for you?

Of course you haven’t. You’re too busy looking at yourself in the mirror.
