The Sleep of Reason Produces Chimeras: Chimera of the Early Russian Capitalism

Chimera of the early Russian Capitalism looking at the beggars and citing the Bible
«Those who give to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses» (Proverbs 28:27) knows pretty well that giving to those who beg does more harm than good and pours champagne over their heads. Some beggars try to sell a ceremonial family portrait of the Chimera, they stay on their knees and beg to buy the portrait.

As Oscar Wilde says, “Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught”. Yes,he is right! For example, creativity cannot be taught. Making money cannot be taught, neither learnt. The Chimera of the early Russian Capitalism knows it pretty well. (Huffington Post)
