Well Gracie, without corporations we can still have pretty much all that we have now though certainly not in the mass quantities that are required for societies of our size, no doubt. The element of teamwork in corporate efforts is the best of what they have to offer though once corporate greed sets in it becomes damned near evil. Neither you nor I nor any of us is wise enough or omnipotent enough to say that corporations or people in general are either mostly good or mostly bad. We can state that we believe one way or another and as long as our 1st Amendment rights hold out, expressing your opinion is acceptable, though we may not all agree. What science tells us though is that in any living system where the occupants multiply and compete for resources, unless supply keeps pace with demand, competition get tougher and good neighbors turn bad quickly. Our modern technologies have also added the element of depersonalization to the equation and when coupled with the “I am the center of the universe” and the “My way or the highway” mentalities, I would say that no matter where the balance of good verses bad may have started out, it is getting worse with every passing day. Now I do not say this to fearmonger or doomspeak, but to point out that just as we here do our best to work around each other and work out our different beliefs, so too should the masses in general work at cooperation with one another. I cannot believe that conveying to them can ever be overdone, can you.
