As is virtually always the case, Bernie Sanders penetrates to the core of the problem and is no wall flower when publically telling the truth. Often, imo, Sanders is too polite.
The bitter truth is that some CEO’s and BOD’s want a corporatocracy and are sociopathic to the extent they regard predatory profits at ANY cost to be good business. This includes the high cost of environmental destruction, of disregarding climate change. of wars for oil and profit, of social injustices, and much more.
And, of course, undermining our social democratic republic and disregarding the needs of Americans and all planetary citizens at ANY cost is myopic and not sustainable. They don’t see that. All they see is greed and ever-increasing profitability!
Fortunately, only a relatively few, albeit multibillion dollar multinational corporations, are guilty. The majority of corporations are reasonably good corporate citizens, lest we forget that and construe all corporations and Capitalism as bad and destructive.
We need to end Citizens United and get Big Money out of politics and end corporate welfare, especially for Big Oil. Re-establish Glass-Steagall and improve on its regulations, including ending predatory practices, and then Go Green. Green corporations are owned by people who have a regard for both the health of the planet and for profit. Doing these five things will go a long way towards establishing heathy and sustainable business practices.
