The game is Capitalism. The goal is to accumulate money. The Cheaters want you to believe that you can win the game by playing fair and working hard, saving, and investing smartly. The Forbes list basically helps the Cheaters by hiding their wealth and by promoting the idea that you can win the capitalism game by being an entrepreneur, taking risks, and working hard. Recent examples: * Where is Hosni Mubarak on the Forbes list? He probably has 100 billion dollars. * 100 billion just went missing in Iraq/Afghanistan. This is the 100th time I've heard of billions gone missing in Iraq/Afghanistan. * Wikileaks says there is 1.5 trillion dollars of Indian black money in Swiss banks. The GDP of India probably isn't even 1.5 trillion. Where are these people on the Forbes list? * China says communists stole 200 billion in the last 10 years. The real figure is probably over a trillion. Where are these people on the Forbes list? The pentagon has lost track of Trillions of dollars since its existence. If you want to be rich, you have to CHEAT. Be a government contractor and pay thousands to lobbyists and politicians so you can get contracts worth millions and billions, an instant 10000%+ return on investment.
