I had a dream in which I had created a product.

I sold that to my friends and family and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I sold it to our neibors, to the street and the town and the whole county and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I optimized my manufacturing by the use of cheaper material and human power and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I improved my tax costs by founding a holding in a tax friendly country and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I setup 28 additional subsidaries in different countries addressing the global market and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I fighted down most of the competition, gained their customer share, sold my product to them and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I shortend the Mean-Time-Between-Failure and increased new features to sell the same product several times to the same customer and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I hired lobbyists to influence the government to create regulations supporting my growth and talked about preventing job cuts and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I invented products filling satisfaction gaps to gain a maximum share of the salary of my customers and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I addicted the clients to my fantasy and supported them in bying on credit and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I influenced governments to shorten educational trainings in school and university to get fresh new clients some years earlier and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I took over a media concern to broadcast my fantasy continously into all brains as part of the daily news and made some money with that, but it was not enough.

I realized that further growth leads to modern slavery. Moral was left behind long time ago and so I was not afraid to take even further steps. The strong overwhelm the weak. Local governments where only a minor influenceless part of my game. This is the global dictatorship by choice, as long as my clients are happy. And they are, because what they know about their world comes from my enterprise. I AM MR.BIG.

I woke up with a smile on my face, made a coffee and picked up my iPad, played a free game with some ads in it, read the latest offers for a huge 3D flatscreen television for only 20€ monthly rate, read the news about some government decissions that I couldn't identify as the will of the electorate but as support for the big ones, realized that my iPhone 5S is my 4th iPhone within 6 years. Scanned my iTunes bills for apps, music and videos and then I realized ... I am the client, I am the slave.

This cancerous growth will kill its host in the end like it always does, I thought.
