Watching the "Miracle on 34th Street" for the umpteenth time I was clearly struck (especially by the current OWS events!!) at how the movie clearly CLEARLY defined what can happen (FOR THE GOOD of ALL) when "Capitalism" and "profits" are considered good characteristics! MACY: You don't have to explain a thing. Just look at my desk. Forty-two telegrams and over five hundred phone calls. Grateful parents expressing undying gratitude to Macy's department store. SHELLHAMMER: Why, you - you don't say? MACY: And from now on, not only will our Santa Claus continue in this manner but every salesperson in the entire store. DORIS: You mean that if we haven't got what the customer asks for, we're to-- MACY: We're to send him where he can get it. No high pressuring and forcing a customer to take something he doesn't really want. DORIS: I think that's wonderful, Mr. Macy. MACY: Why, we'll be known as, er, as the helpful store! The friendly store! The store that places public service ahead of profits! And, consequently, we'll make more profits than ever. Heh! ... As for you, Mrs. Walker, Mr. Shellhammer, you'll find a more practical expression of my gratitude in your Christmas envelopes. " GENERIC RADIO WORKSHOP OTR SCRIPT: Lux Radio Theater The point for those of you Anti-capitalists.. OWS supporters that are so against ANYTHING that makes a profit... Even Mr. Macy knows customers come first! If you provide a service or goods customers want that customers perceive come from honest vendors that put the customer first.. profits will come! But the concept "the customer comes first" is the total antipathy to the OWS crowd and supporters.. yes the OWS supporter IS NOT a 99% because the OWS wants the nanny state to take care and the OWS supporter is so duped by the elite managers who consider communism their model!
