your daily reminder that a company is incapable of making a moral decision if it won't make them money


have you ever noticed how every argument for a company to do any little thing that would be good and right ends with "and it will improve profits in the long run" ?

that's because every argument has to be framed in the profit motive, or it will not happen

this language is designed to fool you into thinking that moral reasoning has a place in capitalism. it does not. it's only purpose would be to placate you. so refuse to be placated

don't forget that nearly every enjoyment you have outside of work is because someone fought for it. that every benefit is because someone fought for it.
