The power of sales pitch
We have seen how powerful the sales people were in the current financial crisis. They have made thousands of people part with their money to buy toxic financial products. Isn't it frightening, and a case of irresponsibility? For a product to be labelled and widely acknowledged as being 'toxic' and that respectable people still thinking that there is nothing wrong with them, and to think of peddling more to the people in the future, my god, we need to change the meaning of the word toxic. For all I know, toxic is even more dangerous than drugs, and drugs are banned. The power of persuasion and convincing the masses to do things against their interests is phenomenal and deadly. Imagine telling the people that it is good to hang a noose around their neck? Or imagine selling them a new bogus religion? Reading the media, I am fully convinced that Singaporeans are easily duded to believe in anything, even if you take their money away and give them a fictitious reason, they will go along. Now you can tell them that building an abattoir for their eventual slaughter, as long as you tell them that it is good for them, they will just go along. Can they really think?
