The Immutable Laws of The Universe

The Immutable Laws of The Universe are as follows:
  • It is impossible to achieve a state of zero risk

  • The costs of trying to achieve zero risk are truly staggering, and are simply not economically viable

  • Struggle gives life meaning

  • Profit is the reward for risk.

    We live in a capitalist society, and rely on companies and individuals to earn money to make the economy work and grow. Without this growth we would still all be festering in caves.

    Zero risk means zero profit, which in turn means that no one would go into business and the economy would grind to a halt
