Once upon a time, out of curiosity as to their loathsome business model, I went on an interview for a job at the head office of one of these companies.

Talk about Satan offering me a deal! That deal featured the usual terms and conditions: a heaping pile of money in exchange for my soul.

What was particularly disturbing was how the most predatory features of their business were euphemized with business-speak language. Do not say "debt slavery"! Instead say "customer retention model." Do not use words like "desperation" or "poverty"! Instead say "target demographic." And always, always talk about how you are "helping" your "customers."
