The great thing about getting older is you tend to say what is on your mind without worrying about what others think. So, here is a little of what is on my mind, or at least what is left of it.

Corporate Sociopathy

If an individual had no obligation save his own well-being, and acted on this singular prospective without any regard or thought to the needs ofothers, we would deem him a sociopath. Yet, according to some, a corporation has no obligation save to gain the largest profit possible for its owners without regard to the effect it would have on workers and society as a whole. If this is true then it would seem that the ethic that guides corporate behavior is metaphorically, sociopathic. If nothing else, corporations provide the perfect blind for management and ownership to hide behind so as to evade any moral and ethical responsibility on their part. Nice world, this corporate world. But then someone has to make the politicians rich. Ask Dick Chaney!
