How are billionaires and trillionaires regarded in our culture, and what does it say about us?
Last week, Matthew referred to a children’s science textbook outlining three symbiotic relationships in nature: mutualism, parasitism, and commensalism, and argued that only win-wins (mutualism) are good while win-lose/lose-wins (parasitism) are immoral.
This week, he shows how commensalism (win-neutral) as defined in that text reflects the symbiotic relationship between giants of innovation and production in any field and all of humanity, as he compares the former to sharks. But far from emphasizing that animal’s predatory characteristic, he argues that they are the great benefactors of humanity to whom we all owe a solemn debt of gratitude.
