It's all about money, cause money can buy anything. Money has no smell, no taste, and it's dirty. It is passed from hand to hand, and end up with everybody's microbes and bacterias. In the digital era it became even worse, as huge amount of money can be passed from hand to hand in a matter of seconds, with little transparency and anonymously. Money has no face, it's a ghost that took control of people's minds. It's a "Total Eclipse" of the heart, as money has none.

At Wall Street, the financial center of New York, the financial capital (stock exchange) of the world. The "Gangs of New York" look like indigents compared to the "The Wolf of Wall Street" Mr. Leonardo. He is a super broker for super bank Goldman Sachs, the super sons of the bitch dominating world finance. Everything worked very well for the banks until the 2008 great recession, which was in reality a giant iceberg. The banks, which were in reality giants "Titanic", crashed against the iceberg and sank. Most of the passengers of the titanic, the workers, the house owners and so on, drowned in the freezing ocean. The titanic sank too? No, it was rescued by the governments to save the whole system. End of the comparison!

Leonardo is a "Celebrity" in the world of finance. His bank (Goldman Sachs) saved Greece by dressing up the public accounts and got 300 millions euros in fees. And then when the country got bankrupt, the European Union (EU) got mad at Greece. They knew Goldman Sachs was behind what happened, but they didn't dare attacking them. Because Goldman Sachs is under the protection of the "God of Money", US Economy itself. If Goldman Sachs are in trouble, US Economy is in trouble, and they won't let it happen. Money and big business are above the law. Leonardo who was part of the Goldman Sachs team that ruined Greece just said about it:

"Catch Me If You Can"

He is a "Django Unchained" coming out from a spaghetti western. It looks like a bad joke, but it's not. The "Inception" began when the power taken away to the banks by Franklin D. Roosevelt was given back to them by Ronald Reagan and the presidents following him. And when George W. Bush took it to the next level, giving the banks total freedom and power over world economy, the whole system collapsed on December 2008 with the Subprime Mortgage Crisis, leading to the Global Financial Crisis. Still, Reagan or W Bush never had any trouble with the law for their responsibility in the destruction of the world economy, because they are under the protection of the "God of Money". This is always the same story: TOO BIG TO FALL!

"The Great Gatsby", Leonardo boss at Goldman Sachs, gave him once a "Hubble" to see what would happen ahead. He would trick and ruin his own clients to make big money for himself, advising them to invest all their money in a company stocks or values about to collapse. Then once it happens, he would buy it for nothing. Or when big lies equal good business. Leonardo knows well all the tricks to make money. First, get clients to trust you, then it's easy to "fuck them", and take their money away. It was bad luck and the reality of the unpredictable financial system. Fuck off! It was just an obvious robbery and some good excuses.

After the 2008 financial crisis, many people lost a lot of money on the stock exchange. And some complained to Leonardo who was supposed to make good investments, not to make lose money. Leonardo told them cynically, not feeling sorry at all for their loss.

"Only you and you alone can change your situation. Don't blame it on anything or anyone."

Leonardo was so proud of himself, making big money with little effort. He liked to say out loud to anyone who wanted to listen to him.

"If you can do what you do best and be happy, you're further along in life than most people."

And with his good friend and colleague at Goldman Sachs, Steven (Mnuchin), he even made bigger money with the crisis, taking advantage of properties' owner unable to pay their mortgage and being expelled from their home. They bought houses in lots for almost nothing. Making easy money on desperate people who lost it all is a typical behaviour of financial sharks.

Leonardo just said to reporters about this business of buying houses in lots, when asked if he didn't feel ashamed and sad for entire families being thrown to the street.

"I just really love doing what I do. I know every career is fleeting and there will be time periods when I don't get the opportunities that I'm getting right now, so I am taking advantage of them."

In his answer he actually didn't even mentioned the families losing their house. Who care!? Business is business, and making money is all that matters. If some people have to lose everything or even die, it's not Leonardo's fault. It's part of life, it's tragedy, and it's not his problem.

"Everybody has gone through something that has changed them in a way that they could never go back to the person they once were."

Leonardo as a child didn't care about money. He wanted to have mum and dad around, eat ice cream, play baseball with his friends, watch his favorite cartoons on TV... just like any kids. But one day the "God of Money" came to him under the disguise of a snake, and offered him the prohibited fruit called "King Dollar". Leonardo liked it too much and as a consequence was sent off the Garden of Eden. Years later, he didn't care not being on the Noah's Ark. As a shark he had plenty of food, with all who perished in the flood sent by God himself.

"So, goodnight Leonardo. Sorry to picture you this way. Next time you'll save the world with your fight against global warming."
