Exploitation and Entrepreneurialism and the Star-Belly Sneetches

"Among my favorite Dr. Suess stories is his tale of the Sneetches. As you may recall, these beach–dwelling creatures came in two varieties. The Star–Belly Sneetches were a snobbish sort, and the Plain–Belly Sneetches longed be like them. So, when entrepreneur Sylvester McMonkey McBean showed up on the beach with his star–making machine, Plain–Bellies eagerly slapped down cash for a ride through this contraption. The result: Their bellies now sported stars, making them indistinguishable from those born with the mark.

The native Star–Bellies were none too pleased. To remain unique, they hurried to pay McBean for a trip through his star–off machine. Now the formerly starred were starless, leaving those who began life without stars regretting their new tattoos. So, they, too, took a trip through McBean's removal machine. Even if you don't know the story, you can figure out where it's headed.

As one class of Sneetches desperately sought to retain its exclusiveness, the other class sought just as desperately to pierce it. Each Sneetch paid for multiple passes through McBean's expensive machines, till all had run out of money and no one could tell one class from another. When McBean drove off the Sneetch beach that day a very rich man, he left behind a poorer, wiser, integrated society."
