16. I live in East TN and never heard about that particular episode of corporate cruelty.

 

I know several people who earned money to go to college by working at the clothing factories throughout East TN and North Carolina. Now the factories are all gone and grandparents wonder why their kids aren't working their way through college too.

I do believe capitalism was modeled after feudalism and slavery. Those were the major economic systems that the uber rich got wealthy off of so they used them as basic models when they pushed capitalism onto everyone. Then corporate capitalism was invented to allow greedy psychopaths to hide behind corporate masks. So, now we have the worst of both systems. We have royal bosses who rule over employees like kings and we have Corporate owners who control every aspect of an employee's life with a simple decision of where to put a money making proposition. We have the sadistic slave overseer called CEOs who carry out with glee the most destructive fantasies of greedy psychopaths.

That is our capitalist system and we should have evolved away from it by now. Instead we have doubled down on the corruption and the destruction.
