Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My brother-in-law was an engineer for Boeing during the SPEA strike.  He walked picket lines with some of the best rocket scientists on earth.  What they discovered was that it took folks like the teamsters to actually help them and that truckers and rocket scientists had the same problems.

And so do electrical engineers, computer programmers, and biotechnologists as well as bankers, managers, and marketing/sales people to boot.  Production and wealth creation requires all these economic functions.  

Parasites only require a host.
