91. It is our jobs as parents to protect our children
Maybe the kids need to see what daddy does for a living. That may cause some change to take place. If not this generation, maybe the next generation, theirs.

It is our jobs as parents to protect our children - from anything - if we engage in dubious practices in our business, we are not protecting our kids. He failed.
His children benefited from his job, they share some of the risk. Reward/ Risk.

Corporations do not care about our kids. They bombard them with TV commercials for sugar products, fast food products, inane, unsafe toys. They use our children to extract our hard earned dollars.
If corporations really cared there would be no corporate presence in our public schools. They would wait till Daddy got home to blister the phone lines with collection calls, so they wouldn't upset the little ones. And on and on.

No it is not good to act as the corporate powers do, it would be optimal to have a huge moral presence, but I feel as though we are taking on a "battered wife" syndrome.
"It's OK to beat me, just don't let YOUR
KIDS see. It's OK for MY KIDS to see though, don't worry they'll be alright."

Heck, those execs can AFFORD to put their kids in therapy.

But our concern for the children, even the thought of it - is what makes us Liberals. We think and discuss and think again about subjects such as these.
