A good father doesn’t want his children to beg. Ever. A good mother doesn’t require her kids to plead before she delivers basic necessities… like her presence.
If we train people to believe that they lack something, especially a basic need, and that you have the remedy, but that it requires them to perpetually apply to get it, like a lottery, then you’ve got a life-time customer. Right?
I’m guessing that it’s this type of gimmick that confuses people and either creates mass stupidity or individual rebellion.
I’d say to the guy: “Put the guitar down. Stop your pleading. Open your eyes and look around. Everywhere!”
