“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries”. Winston Churchill.
I thought of corporate greed . . . those executives who share their visions loud and proud, and take the bones out of the companies until it is on the verge of collapse. They then harvest bonus when time is good, and enjoy golden handshakes when the reality unfolds.
Corporate greed reminds me of chicken feet – skin and bone, tasty, yet unfulfilling as a meal. If a full-time worker struggles to feed his family and put a roof over their heads – is this meal a blessing or misery?
Cooking method is as follows:
- Clean the chicken feet, remove callus and nails
- Place the chicken feet in a pressure cooker (or a heavy base saucepan), add a dash of sesame oil, a dash of soy sauce, a dash of dark soy sauce, a dash of oyster sauce, a dash of wine, a little sugar, a few star anise, a few cloves, black pepper
- Cook on high pressure for 45 minutes (or 2-3 hours in a saucepan on low heat)
- Serve hot or at room temperature
