The Pusher and the Banker

The Pusher
Heroin, no one really needs it, but once addicted you can’t do without it. The pusher, having created a community of junkies is morally bound to maintain the supply of heroin for the sake of his junkies and the maintenance of his ill gotten fortune.

The clever pusher introduces the drug into society slowly, increasing the number of junkies over many years, steadily building up each junkies dependence on the drug. Creating a society that over time accepts perpetual narcosis as normal.

When the pusher craves more money he either increases the price or reduces the supply of heroin.

The pusher is a monster with blood on his hands. 

The Banker
Credit, no one really needs it, but once introduced you can’t do without it. The banker, having created a community of debtors is morally bound to maintain the supply of credit for the sake of his debtors and the maintenance of his ill gotten fortune.

The clever banker introduces unlimited credit into society slowly, increasing the number of debtors over many years, steadily building up each debtors dependence on credit. Creating a society that over time accepts perpetual debt and a reliance upon personal credit ratings as normal.

When the banker craves more money he makes even more credit available or increases interest rates.

The banker is a monster that creates misery around the world.

If you know the tune just replace Pusher with Banker, it almost works perfectly:


Lyrics | The Pusher - Steppenwolf lyrics

OR:

The Banker
You know I've spent a lot of cash
O'Lord, I've got my share of debt
But I never borrowed nothin’
That I couldn’t ‘ford to pay
You know, I've seen a lot of people walkin' round
With tombstones in their eyes
But the Banker don't care
Ah, if you eat or if you starve

God damn, the Banker
God damn, I say The Banker
I said God damn, God damn the Banker man

You know the Banker, the Banker is a man
With the love money in his hand
Oh but the Banker is a monster
Good God, he's not a natural man
The Banker for a nickel
Lord, will give you lots of false credit
Ah, but the Banker ruin your finances
Lord, he'll leave your, he'll send your family to Hell

God damn, the Banker
God damn, God damn the Banker
I said God damn, God, God damn the Banker man

Well, now if I were the president of this land
You know, I'd declare total war on the Banker man
I'd cut him if he stands, I'd lock him in his penthouse if he'd run
Yes I'd kill him with my Bible and my razor and my gun

God damn the Banker
Gad damn the Banker
I said God damn, God damn the Banker man
