I feel so sorry for those corporations that are just looking out for the nice people here.
they really do care, you know...
No, I don't think they care much at all except to the extent that their profits are enhanced.
Corporations are nothing more than organizations of people, and all of those people have their personal feelings, so to the extent that some of those people "care" I guess you could say at least some part of the corporation does as well.
I could take the Left more seriously if it didn't always want to make everything so damned personal.
Aside from the fact that corporations can't care about people, it doesn't matter whether they do or not.
If you feel that it is impossible for a fair balance to be established, by the marketplace, between turning a profit and operating within a healthy society, then there are always government regulations to consider (I'm sure you know something about them don't you?)
There's no reason for you to always frame the issue in terms of good and evil, predator and prey or caring and heartless...and yet you always do.
It's far too heartless of us to say the poor should blame themselves for the straits in which they find themselves.
Apparently we also cannot say that it's not through any fault of their own that they are poor, it must be just be bad luck or God's will.
The only acceptable observation, it would seem, is that the only ones to blame for some people being poor are the rich.
Is this because a person's not really much a victim when all he can blame for his predicament is Bad Luck or God? More like a fallen leaf blowing in the wind, and that's hardly the sort of image that builds self-esteem.
Or is that victims of supernatural forces ,while deserving our pity, cannot really make a legitimate claim for anything but our charity?
If, on the other hand, the victim can identify the offender responsible for his or her condition, restitution and justice can be demanded. It's awkward to make an argument that anyone has a right to charity, but not justice. That right is not only easier to articulate, it's sacred
