OUR VERY OWN FRANKENSTEIN CREATION …
I feel my business education was extremely flawed as I grew up within a family corporate environment where the actions of the sentient beings controlling our – artificial – creation were married to and always part of what that creation did or did not do.
I was not permitted to believe that my actions were separate from those I controlled of our artificial being – corporation. Yes, I was and am aware that from a totally legal perspective there is an undeniable separation one created artificially by action of man. I come not to “kill” the corporation though I do believe it needs to be neutered.
Our Frankenstein creation we have and are allowing to run unrestrained as a … bull in china closet … and it is in dire need to have reasonable restraints imposed.
I want to ask, where, why and how, did “we” allow ourselves to conclude that “we” are NOT accountable and responsible for all the actions of our Frankenstein…?
How are we able to separate from a moral perspective … the actions of our Frankenstein’s we know as: ExxonMobil, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Chevron, Con-Agra, Georgia Pacific, Phelps Dodge, Suez, Bechtel, Kellogg Brown Root, Halliburton, Blackwater, Archer Daniel Midland, Cargill, Union Carbide, the IRS and the FEDERAL RESERVE. Yes, the Federal Reserve is a privately owned corporate entity which manipulates OUR money, it’s nothing but …”smoke and mirrors” … shrouded in secrecy.
Each reader can assess the actions of each of those Frankenstein’s referenced and conclude their relative immoral action knowingly and premeditatedly perpetrated upon mankind.
Perhaps you are able to conclude on balance the action of these Frankenstein’s is OK and there is no need for any restraints to be imposed…? If you do, I sincerely would enjoy hearing from you and the rationale you utilize to achieve your conclusion. When I look at the referenced Frankenstein’s, I see on balance action resulting in the arbitrary, capricious premeditated fundamental harm to man and our environment solely to achieve or acquire more control or power or more dollar$.
Most likely the argument I will encounter supporting our Frankenstein’s action is … by law we demand these Frankenstein ONLY act in their sole selfish best interest. Yes, I will grant you that. I would on the other hand state these are but mere words on paper which can be altered with a stroke of a pen and in a New York minute. It’s nothing more than more smoke and mirrors part of a game the rules of which can be altered at any time and for the benefit of those currently able to exercise power and control.
In all probability the game will not change until “we” – that’s the majority of us 305 million people – comprising the current population of America stand and in one loud clear, concise and understandable voice say … “we are not going to take this anymore” … and in that moment, this current shell game ends and real power reverts to us, in whose hands it rightly belongs.
Only “fear” of the unknown prevents us from taking this action. And the reality is “we” have absolutely nothing to fear … but fear itself … as expressed not that long ago by FDR.
So I pose the question are “we” honestly satisfied with the action of our Frankenstein’s…?
