The Power of Making Someone Feel Despicable..

Why Does Roger Moore Get all the Girls? An old real estate salesman taught me everything I needed to know about equality when I was a know-nothing twenty-one year old. “Jim,” he said, “if you gave a hundred different people a million dollars, in two years, a few of them would have ten million dollars..
