When they say sold their souls, then mean they will do anything for the dollars. And in some cases its true. There are many types of people in this world. Some will pay any price to get what they want, whether in sex, lies, crime or corruption. Look at the mutimillion dollar frauds in the stock market. Some people have mastered the " honest John" sales appeal and took down thousands of investors. Look at the oil companies. Look at corporate greed in technology devices while under paying their workers. So it depends on which side of the table you are seated. The greedy grab all the money we can side by any means necessary, or the unenlightened consumer who pays the price. No hate is necessary. Everybody plays the game on some level, although they pretend honesty. Like Robert Ringer once said, they may appear innocent, but they all are after your chips.
