The fable of Adam Smith, neoliberal profit

Long long ago, in a land far far away, there was a profit, but only for the greedy Nobility. There was no profit for the merchants or traders. Adam Smith saw this and he was sad. But not to worry, he wasn't sad for long. For lo, Lazy Fairy came in the night to visit Adam and showed him a vision. If only people would believe in Lazy Fairy, her invisible hand would guide all the markets, make everyone happy and bring a new order to the world. Merchants and traders would have their profit, and each and every one of us would get to work near them to have a chance at the wondrous things falling from the overloaded tables of their banquets. Adam wrote the words of the new profit, and when the merchants and traders read his words they were enlightened by the righteousness of the gospel of Lazy Fairy and instantly became believers. They've been praising the Lazy Fairy and reaping the profits she brought them ever since. The end.
