As an adjunct professor I have been reminded that often faculty members become the most important texts that students read. In other words the teacher as mentor and role model is as indispensable as the lectures taught in the classroom.
Does that apply to those guys who go around speaking at seminars?
Everyday in the papers you can see ads such as these screaming with headlines worded thus:
“Make Money in Today’s Market”
“Learn the secrets to make a consistent second income from the financial markets”
“Is $500 – $1000 a day good enough for you?”
“In 2 years, I turned US$10k to US$2,039,492.00 in the bear market and I can show you how to do it”
“GET SUPER RICH FOREX SEMINAR $28,000 PROFITS IN 1 DAY! WHY OUR GRADUATES DON’T WORRY ABOUT RECESSION AND YOU CAN TOO!”
“When the market is up, I earn, when the market is down, I also earn”
“I’ve Earned $100,000 in Eight months of completing the training”
“Top 10 Passive Income Earners Show You How To Recession-Proof Yourself”
“Grow Your Wealth in Minutes a Week”
“Take a Business from Start-up to a Million Dollars in 18 Months”
If I can “make $500 to $1000 a day, earn $100,000 in eight months and can turn US$10k to US$2,039,492.00 in two years” (to quote some of those ads), why I am running classes to teach you how to do that? The poor English should have given us all a hint of the types of characters behind these ads.
But I digress.
What I meant to say is this – do these cowboys teaching in classrooms (or function rooms in some hotel) merely doing a job or do they feel a sense of moral obligation to live upright lives?
I guess many would think living morally won’t really be necessary – judging from what I see in the personal lives of some of these retards.
