An American Industrialist Is Unhappy.

I am here, Jay Gould.

Yes, it is I, the American industrialist who sold his soul for money. And where did it get me?

Of course, on earth, any appeals to saving my soul would have been met by me with condescending scorn and disbelief.

I see very clearly how the sort of mentality I represented is literally ruining our country. I was a terrible example of what not to do, and those who follow my path will find that it leads to nothing but unhappiness and misery.


Jason “Jay” Gould (May 27, 1836 – December 2, 1892) was an American financier who became a leading American railroad developer and speculator. Long vilified as a stereotypical “robber baron”, modern historians have discounted various myths about him and more positively evaluated his career. (Source: Wikipedia)
