They say that Capitalism has no morals, no ethics. It has no soul and certainly no empathy or compassion.
I say, “Let's change that.”
We're going through a strange phenomenon where really, truly, horrific behavior is being overlooked, even justified, because it effects someone's profit. What's a little whipping on the bottom of a child when it comes to the bottom line? Want to cold-cock your wife? Go ahead. But, as always, if you or any of your INF(L) crew are caught on tape, the commissioner will disavow any knowledge of your actions.
Are we willing to rewrite the laws and/or the morals of thousands of years, because there just happens to be Billions of dollars at stake? Apparently, yes.
Just watch in fascination as these coaches dance around in justification of what their star players are doing. Sounds like the lyrics to Natalie Merchant's Luca, “he's your kid, do as you see fit.”
When are we going to realize: Wrong is Wrong!
Do you honestly believe that ANYONE , in their heart of hearts believes that there isn't a clear and present danger from Global Climate Change? It's quantifiable and it's bloody obvious to anyone who has ever gone outside in the last 10 years. Of course not!
Then why are there still politicians and corporate big wigs and higher-ups who deny it up and down?
Because it might alter the way they do business, and therefore, affect their bottom line. What about the planet? What about their offspring? All of that nonsense is Trumped (get it?) by profit. Profit at all cost.
As somebody once said, “The love of money, is the root of all evil.”
I hope that their money if fire-proof, cause they're going to need it in Hell.
