Straight Line Logic
Those on top don’t always stay on top.
Who can argue with prevailing business practices? If corporate-debt-supported stock options, wiping out competitors via regulation rather than honest competition, buying bureaucrats and politicians, endorsing the reigning ideology, and political pull are the road to riches, how can you fault the executives for taking it?
Matthew 16:26 comes to mind:
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? – The King James Bible
The executives have sold their souls and have no interest in the hard road to redemption.
