So the “Summer of Recovery” and the current economic…boom?…are due entirely to corporate profits. Check out that total eye-opener of a chart.
Corporate profits are wonderful, providing the corporations are businesses and not pseudo-governmental agencies. In which case they become, not just prostitutes, but whores-by-mandate.
Part of the problem is that corporations are permitted to lobby the government. Why is this allowed? Legally they’re considered abstract “entities”, but they’re just complicated tools. They have no value in and of themselves. I’d destroy a billion corporations to save one sick puppy. And they often serve as yet another mask, a facade behind which would-be tyrants seek to force us to do as they want.
Human beings have rights. Human beings should always be able to petition the government for redress of grievances. But corporate “rights”? Any homo sapien seeking advantage for a corporation is a traitor not just to his species, but to all biological life.
The point? Jeff Immelt isn’t just a whore, he’s the sockpuppet whore of a Lovecraftian psychic vampire.
I’m pretty sure you read that here first.
