Social Question

Besides the obvious, what are some other "Biggies" that are probably hateful, criminal and enemies to society?

Asked by josie (27866points) January 18th, 2011

Clearly, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Auto, etc are the usual targets of hatred or at least blame for everyone’s misfortune.

But I suppose it is possible that someday, all of those who hate these things will finally get their way, and oil and medicine and cars will disappear.

So what “Big” things are the up and comers. Who are the “Biggies” that are waiting in the wings, gradually working their way to a level of bigness that will make them worthy of popular disdain.

The disdain comes from the companies getting so big they think they can get away with anything. It comes from the perception they think they can squash the little guy and not suffer any consequences.

Anyway, what goes around, comes around. Can anyone be surprised that large investment and mortgage bankers are the “Big” du jour?

I can sum this up in one word.
Success
Everyone who has envy and hatred in their heart for the successful,feels the success is somehow unearned and at the expense of someone else.

Drug users. Their dollars fund the already infamous drug dealers who in turn fund the cartels.
