Studying. Doing my ethics reading.
Apparently, economist Milton Friedman said:
"Businessmen who talk this way are unwitting puppets of the intellectual forces that have been undermining the basis of a free society these past decades".
A bit harsh, isn't it? Hard to take him seriously now.
Also: Pretentious much?
Who uses the word "eleemosynary" anyway?? And who knows what it means?
eleemosynary \el-uh-MOS-uh-ner-ee\, adjective:
1. Of or for charity; charitable; as, "an eleemosynary institution."
2. Given in charity; having the nature of alms; as, "eleemosynary assistance."
3. Supported by or dependent on charity; as, "the eleemosynary poor."
I should not have to stop in my readings to look up a term in order to learn that a writer is discussing a charity!!
(mutter, mutter, mutter...)
