Here's a joke: Humaitarians doing what doesn't exist because of greed. Ha ha.

Imagine that. It does exist and is a necessity. I don't want to get the impression that I'm all about religion. I certainly am a lot when it comes to morality and science but politics and business are also a fundamental part of our society and impact all of us.

It's not profitable to do certain things, certain needs must be taken care of. So we have businesses doing what ever is profitable, which might be truly dedicated to helping people, but which might be hurting people and getting rich off of it. Who am I to say that it's wrong to do what ever is clever to get paid? I totally understand monetary motivation. It's what fuels the world's economy and you have to have some of it.

But not all of it, and we have to have certain levels of decency when it comes to what corporations and do. Imagine a world where we are all slaves to monolithic corporations that have no borders and can shift faces very fast. I'd rather not. I'd rather not have to at least.

We have rules of decency regarding sex don't we? You are suppose to respect each others' spouses, right? Of coarse you are and that serves a useful purpose. And you are suppose not do to others what you wouldn't want done to you, right? I don't think that failing to meet moral standards is sin, in the divine respect, but it should carry the social stigma that it's definitely wrong. And for the category higher, why not some man-made laws to enforce them? Well how 'bout that.
