We all like to think of ourselves as a moral individual. An individual who has virtues, and ethics, that was raised to uphold. We like to think of ourselves as good people. Granted it may seem that way, you will soon learn that’s far from the truth. Let’s imagine that you are a vegetarian, youve never touched meat before, never wanted to, never believed in having to use animals for our consumption. Are y’all feeling like a vegetarian yet? Ok. So now let’s imagine someone sat a nice plate of ribeye steak in front of you and offered to pay you money to eat it. Now, remember you are a vegetarian you don’t eat meat so what are you gonna do. $100 may not be enough, $1000 may not be either, but let’s imagine they offered you $10,000 just to eat that piece of steak. That’s all you gotta do. Would you do it? I would. So let’s say we all gave in and decided to just eat the steak. We all know we gain something which was money; but what about the things we just lost. You lost your lifestyle of not eating meat. All those years you had put in having the mindset that meat-eaters are wrong and you just become one for the great price of $10,000.
This brings me to my thesis statement C.R.E.A.M. C.R.E.A.M was an acronym created by Method Man, who was a rapper from the Wu-Tang Clan; C.R.E.A.M stands for Cash Rules Everything Around Me. Now today I will be presenting to you all no matter how many ethics and virtues and character you may think you have for the right price you won’t have it anymore. Before I get deeper into my thesis I would first like to put my thesis in syllogism form. It is your classic A is B, B is C, so A is C.
Premise 1 being everyone has a price, premise 2 price rules, therefore price rules everyone.
