Traditionally, Chinese fishermen used Cormorants for fishing. No bird gives you its fish for love. The fishermen place a ring around the birds' necks, so they can't swallow the whole fish, then reward them with small pieces of fish that they can still swallow.
remembering who put the ring there or understanding why, not even
knowing there is a ring, the birds learn quickly that the fishermen are
their friends, saviors and source of the only food they can eat. They
become loyal and obedient servants, using their natural gifts to serve
their masters, handing over the fruits of their labours and grateful for
the scraps they receive.
Isn't this how Capitalism works on us all?
