Prophets are important, yet often ignored.  Some prophets aren’t ignored.  They generally come in two types.  1. They say stuff people don’t want to hear and usually end up dead.  2. they say stuff that people do want to hear and end up rich and influential.

Of course the second type aren’t prophets at all – they are false prophets who are able to get a good read on what people want and then say it.  They are good marketers and salespeople – not to put marketers and salespeople down.

These prophets end up being concerned with profits.

To read more about false prophets, I recommend this article.  Also, I recommend The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene.  Greene tells many stories of false prophets throughout history.

Who are some false prophets around today?  Why are they false prophets?
