"In a nutshell, in this era of corporate anarchy, corporations do not have to abide by any rules—none at all. Legal, moral, ethical, even financial rules are irrelevant. They have all been rescinded in the pursuit of profit—literally nothing else matters." - Gonzalo Lira
I am not going to go off on our crony capitalist system that is breaking down before our very eyes. Social and moral responsibility of the corporation has turned into reprehensibility. And by this, I speak of such looming examples as the banking and energy industries. Our existing corporate structure is on the brink of systematic collapse and the majority of Americans can do nothing more than blame either of the two political parties - in effect the same party - and continue to be spoon fed their news by the corporate elitists.
It would be more fathomable if the average American was benefiting from this greed, but unfortunately most are not. Our wealth, savings and future prospects are basically dwindling to nil while the wealth of this nation becomes more and more concentrated in the hands of fewer and fewer, at unprecedented historical levels. How much longer is this model sustainable?
On a brighter note, Day Two of a raw vegetable body cleanse. Maybe I'm in a pissy mood because I woke to my house mate's Rocket Donuts and it will be another week of carrots, lettuce and apples. This is the third cleanse I've done, and I was lucky enough last night to volunteer at the food bank with a girl that works at a new raw food restaurant in town: Nama. Maybe a raw food diet won't be so bad.
