“I did a post about mystery movies. It quoted somebody who said to this effect; the days of competitive capitalism is exemplified by Sherlock Holmes. He used more logic and rational thinking (better product) and the bad guy gave himself up. We now live in the age of monopoly, exemplified by a character as Tom Ripley. The bad guy always wins.”
