no.Fools have to be taught a lesson.It's obligatory and healthy.
People who want a Tarot reading are going to get one. I think what determines how exploitative it is, is how careful you are with the potential influence you might have over the lives of the more gullible customers.
if treated simply as a form of entertainment, then it's just that. you will have to be your own guide as to how far your mores allow you to go beyond that.
Welcome to the field of fortune telling and psychics.<br />
If you can get past the obvious moral and ethical problems then you can make quite a bit of money.
again, welcome to the field : P
Ever hear of karma?
I'll do reading for people if they pay too. They are the one's who want to hear something so general an force their life's to actually make a reading come true. But hey, I have the money; why should I care?
I agree with the person who brought up Karma, and would like to add that if indeed it's treated as a parlor trick, and you know for sure that the people you are charging for your service are treating it as such, then I do not see an ethical quandary. HOWEVER, if they (and really, your customers are more important, as in any service) are treating this as a real and genuine experience, you are falsely dealing with the situation. Nonbelievers aside, there always seems to be a balance in these situations.
