I’m not a psychologist, but it’s obvious that people get attached to particular beliefs even when evidence shows those beliefs to be wrong. By wrong, I mean they don’t align with reality.
Some people believe free markets can solve all of society’s problems. Others believe that doctors are very wise and journalists are just looking for the truth. Some people believe that people are basically good.
None of that is true, or rather, it’s not true all the time. Free markets can be good or they can be bad. Doctors can be wise or they can be fools. Journalists can be searching for truth or they can be playing “gotcha” for political purposes. Some people are good; some people are bad.
Lots of Americans think corporations = good. But today in America, it’s obvious that many corporate billionaires are evil and are actively working to destroy our nation.
So, who and which corporations are evil? I can think of a few:
- George Soros
- Jeff Bezos
- The Washington Post
I don’t hate corporations and billionaires. Some are okay. But, I do hate corporate billionaires when they use their power and influence to try to destroy my country.
If corporations are people, my friend, they most certainly can be traitors.
