First, I just finished saying that corporations, being legal fictions, cannot be moral actors, and therefore they cannot be evil. Or good for that matter. So spare me the pontificating if you can't even bother to follow what I have written. If you have some sort of learning disability, I'll try to explain things more simply in the future.
But yeah, this is ALL about morals. Introducing a product no one really needs, since the need is already met quite well, in order to increase profit margins is immoral. Treating the aquisition of wealth as the primary concern, rather than the good of your fellow human beings, is immoral. Treating human beings as a source, or a commodity to be manipulated for your own ends, rather than as your equals in dignity, with a concern for their ends, is immoral.
In fact, all immorality can be summed up as one of two things: Treating people as things, and treating things as people. Anytime you do one of those two things, regardless of whatever "right" to do so you might possess, it is a grave evil.
And, for the record, I never said any of you need to even agree. I just expressed suprise that, of all the folks on this forum, no one felt the least bit uncomfortable with what has happened with this thing. Then again, its the selfishness and greed of western man that has ensured that his culture won't survive in any recognisable form for another 200 years, and that that vacuum the west will leave, for better or worse, is being filled by Islam. People so concerned with their rights that they can't even produce replacement numbers in subsequent generations don't really deserve to keep a culture anyway.
As for your "best system ever" boasts, you might be right, if materialism were the lens we view the world through. But I'd say the economic system of 13th century Europe was far better. Or at least the average peasant was far more free than your average wage-slave in a cubicle.
Tell me, are you or do you...
1. the sole or principal owner in the business in which you work?
2. own your own home, without burden of usurious debt?
3. have daily leisure to spend time with your family?
4. the sole 'breadwinner' of the family, so that your wife is able to devote all of her love, talents and energy into your & her home and hearth?
5. able to school your own children?
6. able to afford basic necessities for civilized living, such as good musical instruments for your children?
7. schedule out most of the activities of the day, or are they directed for you, either by bosses or clients?
If you work hard, and answered yes to LESS THAN SEVEN, Then you are
A WAGE-SLAVE. You may call yourself politically free, but you are economically enslaved as a wage-earner to a government or corporate body. Freedom-wise, you are placed BELOW the average 13-century peasant, who possessed all the above!
