9. This reveals just how morally corrupt businesses have become.....

 

Capitalism has never been "genteel". But there was a time when businesses recognized the inherent benefits they got from operating in a regulated economy. Society generally gave the owners "limited liability" which means that the liability of individuals investing in the business were limited to the extent of their investment (i.e. they could loose it all) but were not personally responsible. There was a time during which companies recognized the value of the protection of their IP. There was a time during which companies recognized the value of anti-trust regulation which helped new entrants in a market. There was a time when companies recognized the value they got from what the public provided - educated workforce, roads, bridges, etc.

But no more....they want more and more and think it should be all for free. It is as if the population should bow down to the corporate masters and be thankful for the jobs they offer.

Screw them.
