Corporate business exists as a wrongful extension of government, giving it access to illegitimate, dehumanizing power. It doesn’t need to be that way. Governmental responsibility must endeavor to protect its citizenry from assault. That protection requires dethroning a money cartel that is hijacking civilization.
Governments wage war in two ways, physical combat and pseudo-economic assault. Pseudo-Economic Assault (PEA) is “pseudo,” because there is nothing economic about it. Physical combat is easily observed, but PEA silently and invisibly kills, wounds, or enslaves its victims. While soldiers involved in physical combat are aware of their role in the attack, PEA soldiers are often oblivious to their roles in the assault.
PEA is entirely different than economic activity. Economy in its purest form is everyone working for everyone else. Organized business is a good thing, but the business has responsibilities beyond making money. Making money is not an ethical reason to do business unless you run a mint. A business uses money to discharge responsibilities in a manner that protects itself and rewards its constituents in a satisfying, sustainable way. People should receive rewards for their efforts, but corporations can be money consuming donkeys that harm everyone who can’t ride them or feed them money. Government officials find plenty of money to feed them, and they take it from vulnerable citizens.
PEA is caused by a money cartel which offers enhanced super compensation to a select few with the goal of market and political domination. That domination is an unquenchable thirst. Pea will not quench that thirst. Enhanced super compensation is the problem. It is the gaping hole in the economic bucket. It creates both an incentive for victims to help government officials and corporate heads to siphon off public money, and it creates a punishment for those who resist. Cooperative effort requires a rational reward system. Failing to provide this, corporations the cash consuming donkies are playing the role of super-citizens. They submerge humanity with PEA. Asses make poor citizens. They are supposed to be beasts of burden. They can help our human family bear the load of human needs and desires, with dignity, not with gild.
