Pretty messed up, but this is what happens when you abandon the Bible! :roll:


New York Times Declares CORPORATIONS the ‘Moral Voice’ of America

"An article in the New York Times praises “the moral voice of corporate America"

Meanwhile, progressive bastion Vox.com published another article... They also go further than the Times in declaring that the corporations of America are starting to fulfil the role previously served by Christian churches.

Instead of choosing religions based on their sets of values, argues Vox, we now pick corporations instead.

In the weird world of corporate morality described by Vox, a consumer’s choices are no longer determined by how good a product is... but by the political values that the product is associated with. Businesses, meanwhile, no longer serve “the consumer,” but political tribes."

I do know that advertising seems to have more a negative effect on me; I'm less likely to buy products made by certain corporations on the "values" they espouse, or on their crass advertising, which I guess is itself representative of their values, or lack of.


Quote:
The forthright engagement of these and other executives with one of the most charged political issues in years — the swelling confidence of a torchbearing, swastika-saluting, whites-first movement — is “a seminal moment in the
history of business in America,” said Darren Walker, the president of the Ford Foundation and a board member at PepsiCo.

“In this maelstrom, the most clarifying voice has been the voice of business,” he said. “These C.E.O.s have taken the risk to speak truth to power.”
:? Huh? The president of the Ford Foundation wants to talk about Swastikas?!

Doesn't the Ford Foundation have a history of supporting antisemitic organizations and "Palestinian" causes? Weren't Henry Ford and Edsel Ford, the founders of Ford Motor Company and the Ford Foundation antisemitic themselves?

It appears that people having a strange reverence for corporations icons may not be a new phenomena or a specifically American one:
Quote:
Speaking in 1931 to a Detroit News reporter, Hitler said he regarded Ford as his "inspiration," explaining his reason for keeping Ford's life-size portrait next to his desk.
