    In the latifah interview he asks her why would anybody help someone else for no gain or advantage. It was chilling as a window to the way stern thinks!

    This guy only understands exploitation for personal gain and advantage

    This explains the NASL nonsense in a nut shell.

    Exactly. He knows the NSAL thing with them is not about helping out the animals or the people involved but is for his wife to have a charity front and to forward her career as a celebrity.

    that's also why he is a millionaire. unfortunately you need to be a callous sociopath to truly get ahead in life.

    Cultural equivalent of an injun scalping Latifah's audience & doing a rain dance.

    He's always been completely confused by this. He 100% does not understand why you would help someone when you've had such good luck.
    That's what Howards had too....really, really, really good luck (and accidental timing).

    Bingo.

    The tenets of capitalism & economic gain are negatively correlated with basic humanity & morality.

    Choose your poison. You wanna be a rich scumfuck or a good dude that scrapes by? There are no happy mediums, only delusions.

    That's just what losers say who want to make excuses for why they haven't gotten anywhere.

    It is perfectly possible to be a good person and treat people right and also to "get ahead" and be wealthy. There are countless examples of good, kind, ethical and truthful people who are extremely wealthy. You guys just haven't put the work in or taken the risks but refuse to take the blame for not getting the results.

    okay, it is 100 percent true that you [pay someone what they deserve or I guess whats necessary as a businessman. but think of this. Stern is notorious for not paying much outside of the fab 4. (Howard, Robin, Gary, Fred) that's why john had to hustle so much and maybe even Jackie. (although Jackie was also a bit greedy and never satisfied) but the truth is movie stars here in L.A. that aren't worth 1/2 of what stern is worth take much better care of the people around them than Howard ever has. I mean, what fucking world does stern live in when one of his so called favorite employees j.d admittedly a dork but still a member of the show and tv show before it pulled the plug would have to live in squalor?

    there are a thousand exceptions to the rule and i'm not trying to make excuses......but google "CEO + psychopath" and you'll get some interesting results. it often takes a certain kind of person to really get to that next level. and you could make the argument they do "good, kind, ethical things" just because they really know how to play the game and manipulate people. but i'm not that cynical.

    Representing your statement as a "rule" is ridiculous on it's face. It's not a rule that you have to be a dick to get ahead in life - like I said, that's just what people say who didn't get ahead to make themselves feel better. "I could have done it, but I am just too doggone ethical". Yeah. And I could be banging Jessica Alba but I just prefer redheads.

    And what do CEO's have to do with 'getting ahead in life'? There are tons of ways to become a millionaire, and being the CEO of a company isn't even close to the top of the list.

    hey, i'm just a drunk idiot and have no dog in this fight. I was just referencing an article I remember reading about how an unusual amount of people with psychopathic tendencies become CEOs and politicians. the only real point I was trying to make is that I believe Howard Stern is a very damaged and mentally ill person......I guess I should not have lumped all successful people in with him. :hat:

    Who's saying I want to be wealthy?

    But for the sake of argument, what are your "countless" examples? Because if it's the usual egalitarian donation shit, Stern "donates all the time" and wuvs widdle animals. Sam Simon donates a fuckton to the level where people have genuinely forgotten the years of every writer in Hollywood saying he was absolute pile of shit to work with or be around.

    P.R., as someone else said, which is again parallel with the notions of not doing good without a direct benefit that this thread presents.

    You speak of risks, I speak of context, within the context of economic gain & increasing capital, what are these "good" things that these "good persons" do? I don't give a fuck where they empty out their couch cushion change after-hours, the argument is during the work day the inner scumfuck makes the cash.

    It's not a "rule" but a generality like you'd make if you want to extract anything out of life other than it's this desultory ball of randomness that "who knows, Robin." And you sound like a kid arguing Santa exists so you can sleep at night.

    Citations.

    I look forward to helping people for no gain. Why am I here in the first place if not to do that first?
