F:[I] worked for others all of my life. I don't in the least feel embittered or vengeful towards others who may be better off than I because they hired me. I also do not envy those who are strong enough to create jobs and take chances. As a matter of fact, I rather admire them. I wish that I could provide society with the benefits of the entrepreneur.

F: Then perhaps you have never heard of false consciousness and have never really questioned the dynamics underlying the profit motive. BTW, the "entrepreneur" benefits is basically an illusion.

F: Do you ever feel that you would like to start your own company?

Qx: I have several times. It can help put food on the table but I'm never an employer but instead employ myself. Grab a pick axe and start trenching on your claim stake too.

F:Are you a 'wage slave'?

Qx: I have been many times over. Incorporating oneself doesn't necessarily change the situation either.
