Why bother? maybe because you have something to say<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.. why did you reply to the article? do you think you have to be paid for everything you do? I am not even saying that it is bad to be paid to write a book or something. But is is a just a silly game to assume that ANY of these laws really make us more productive, creative, or smarter.

I would work and solve problems and create simply because it is built into my very being.

Why should you write? Why not keep it to yourself? Someone else will do what you don't<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.. there is a whole human race aspiring to be more than they are and it is not simply for money. Create and innovate and improve yourself and the human race, enrich each other and stop worrying about getting rich. If you do what you like and do it well, you will be rewarded with money and more.

people need to stop thinking like the stereotypical lawyer and salesmen.
