Payday lending, Short Selling Stocks, Ridiculously Leveraged multiple Credit Default Swaps, all of these are evil on different scales. Payday lending preys upon the vast American Middle Class who live pay-check to pay-check, more than 1/2 of all American households. The Payday lender (pronounced as "loan shark") is a small scale plutocrat wanna-be with an office in a struggling part of town, who works for his soul-less corporate masters. Short Selling voraciously feasts upon the not-quite-dead-yet but starting to decay stocks of companies to further concentrate tremendous wealth into the hands of a few manipulative bastards at the expense of the company creators, employees, and suppliers, all of whom don't matter at all to the short seller. There's probably less than 10,000 full time, hard core short sellers in America. CDSs, which in singular instances are not inherently evil on an occasionally necessary transactional day-to-day basis to help a specific business you personally know and trust and deal with, but they end up raping and bankrupting Joe Taxpayer when they are also abused by obscenely wealthy plutocrats and are bought & sold en masse for profit, and not for need.
Wouldn't it be nice, if there was a Jurrasic Park like Island preserve, where Payday Loan Corporate Officers & Branch managers, along with dedicated short sellers, and financiers who derive more than 1/2 of their personal and corportate wealth from CDSs were used to feed the island's carnivorous theropads? That would be a "Survivor" I would watch & enjoy.
Lacking a fictional island, it would be enjoyable to see them go up against mix martial artists, in ones and 2s, in televised octagon steel cage matches to the death, without referees. At least then they would be providing some benefit to society, in entertainment, and in improving the gene pool, while setting an example of "that what happens when you base your whole life upon evil predation". I am not calling for their destruction & dismemberment. I'm just saying, that if we lived in a world where such fictional scenarios were possible, I'd pay to watch, or at least set my DVR to record it for later viewing.
