Moral Vs. Money

Post  Niccolo_Machiavelli on Mon May 31, 2010 2:53 pm

So while reading your essay I was reading how you think people should stop their own profit for the benefit of others that they never see. I was wondering why you think people are actually concerned about who is oppressed to give them good prices? Question

Because evil prevails when good men fail to act and when good men fail to stop racism and slavery then evil does prevail and this is not the America that good men like General Washington and the great founding fathers fought and some even died for in the Great War of 76'

Have you seen the capitalist structure that your "freedom" has created? The child of the small government and the free capitalistic economy is the corporation who is only accountable to the shareholders and they are infinity hungry for profit. This self-destructive beast is bringing heartbreak and ruin to the world. This corporate child does not play nice with the other smaller nations who are ergonomically smaller then them, they push the nation down and break their back with the pressure they put on the nation to produce them more and more profit until they are ready to be used as a step to the next county they will use for Globalization. pig pig pig

Now this cotton that we buy is only connected by 3 or 4 degrees of separation and even after 2 degrees of separation there is no moral responsibility or obligation to the treatment of the slaves however the 1 degree between the merchant who is selling cotton at 10 dollars a pound and a merchant selling cotton at 20 dollars a pound without the sweat of slaves and with the obligation to the public to sell a cheaper product and/or gain more profit the morals of what happens to the people 3 or 4 degree.

With a democracy it is a chance that we will all have to take. Because the quality of the nation as a whole is dependent on the peoples intentions because that is the cost of freedom. It is more probable that a single leader only accountable to him/herself to become corrupt then the mob accountable to itself to become corrupt. Evil or Very Mad Twisted Evil

The single leader is more likely to become corrupt however with action from the people it is likely that change will happen. However if the Mob is in power and the Mob goes corrupt, because its not a matter of IF but WHEN the erosion of the Mobs moral happens, the elected officials will have no control over the self-destructiveness of the Mob who is fueled by the Corporations

The erosion of morals are guaranteed noting the death of Able at the hands of his brother Cain

+ 1 point for correctly using a biblical reference

Thoreau don’t cite the bible unless you going to use the quote in the right context.

P.S. I gave people free will and a perfect utopia and look what happened.
