Nothing wrong with profits but is there a way to make profits without killing people or denying them care?

Maybe we should shake the Magic Socialist Salary Ball. Or perhaps we should ask God, unless we are atheists, then we will ask Godvernment. Oh I know! Just get some megalomaniac to decide for the rest of us droolers. Isn't this how such things as "rich", "fair", "greedy" are determined when it is to be applied to everyone?

It does seem strange the high compensation given to such people, but apparently they figured out a way to convince people to give them that money. I am just sorry that I haven't figured out a way to do the same

Anyway, as a person that doesn't believe myself to be a God, I wouldn't have the arrogance to say what is right here.

Is there a way for any company to make a profit without denying people access to their service ?
