What a generous man was Richard Pratt. He gave so much to charities and the arts. Well, I am not so sure how much he gave to the really poor in our society, the ones who fall through all safety nets, but no matter, his intentions were good. He could afford to give money since he had so much of it. I can't recall seeing him serving in a soup kitchen caravan.
He gave generously to the areas the middle and upper classes are interested in. Even a working class boi like me has been a beneficiary of his largess to the arts by way of subsidised theatre. (Andrew waves to Jeanie across the theatre seats)
Society seems to think that through cartel behaviour, a cent here or a cent there does not matter for the individual consumer who bought goods with an inflated packaging component, and it probably didn't, individually. Collectively it added up to a very large sum of money. But we shan't pillory him for ripping each of us off for a few cents will we.
Pratt was a bit of a reverse Robin Hood really, take from the poor and give to the rich, or at least the comfortable.
I am reminded of the very old biblical saying which I will reconstruct to suit my purpose.
It is easier for for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.
Dick, you may have to do a bit of clawing to get in.
