As easy to post a diatribe about how entrepreneurs create the lowest possible quality of job and are only interested in provisions of profit into their own pockets, that they wouldn't (and often' don't!) contribute the adequate level of taxes to pay for the education, services, health etc of the workers to whom they bestow these amazing jobs, that the red tape they so complain of is there to protect the environment and wider society, that nepotism and parachuting of preferred yet unqualified candidate is by some distance more the practice than in the (highly visible and regulated) public sector, that the country and indeed the entire planet is as yet still rocking from the consequences of unchecked business interests serving the interests of business and that the lack of strict bureaucratic red tape in the movement of taxes, profits, bonds, stocks and shares around the globe is a very great contributor to the disparity in governmental power to provide a stable and balanced platform from which society as a whole can thrive.
That the very role of entrepreneur, indeed, is akin to the white bread portion of a sandwich- offering very little of value but you get used to it being there and it holds the sustenance together.
Now, that would be unfair and inaccurate to a greater or lesser degree for the vast majority of cases.
But if all you want is a lazy, broad sweep of a statement without reference to fact, stat or balance, or in any way acknowledging the complexities of economic reality in the modern world in even the most simple of market structures as placed in an actual working societal model, well sure- have that for starters.
We'll get nothing done but it'll be a lovely argument.
