Hmm
He thinks he ahs the secret of success
He gives lots of examples of people we have heard of.
But nothing from the people who failed.
What about the people who thought good thoughts, had goals etc. etc. and then amounted to nothing?
We never hear about them

It's the lucky ones we hear from.

This is quite an old broadcast - probably in the 1960s.

That was a very different time.

A time when the world still had most of its natural resources, a time when the population was far lower, a time when governments were writing policies to increase social cohesion and welfare. A post-war time where people strived to oppose the fascist and communist regimes of the past.

"Capitalism" was far different then. In a world where the weekly shop was eggs, milk, butter and meat - a can of coke was the work of greatness.
