OBSERVATIONS & OPINIONS

                 THE PAST AND THE OBSERVATIONS OF TODAY

 

Today like every other day a corruption is identified in either industry or government.

I grew up in the 50’ and 60’s when there weren’t any corrupt practices.

RIGHT!

I’m sure they existed and cleverly concealed. The technology did not exist to easily reveal them. Money and intimidation played a major part in their secrecy.

Today, things are different. Every day new corruptions are revealed. And every day nothing of consequence happens.

Good lawyers and money are finding ways around the system. Or making their way through the system through donations to politicians.

I want to share my personal experience with a large company.

I worked for this company for 22 years, which constantly morphed into a different organization due to mergers. The final merger with a less than reputable company, which in reality, was a subtle takeover was the death nell of values I respected.

When I began my job with this company it was honest, focused on their products. But over time things changed. As with most companies the focus now is on the bottom line to please stockholders.

Day after day I hear company adds talking about their top managers on retreat to discuss the company’s culture.

Corporations provide pleasant surrounding for the top executives of the company to discuss the future of the company and to their culture.

The culture is the bottom line. If a company could produce a product which would benefit society but not be profitable, what would be the decision of this products future, I don’t have to tell you what the choice would be.

The company I worked for was once sued for over three billion dollars. They said they were not guilty, but would pay the fine to put this behind them.

Have you heard that before?

I feel today we all pawns. Our lives are manipulated by the 1% not caring about our lives or the country. Their object is wealth and power.

This an ultra short ghost story. Well done.
