Has Covid-19 changed this notion of “Moral Entity”?

Note: Repost of 2011 article “A moral entity? What are multinational corporations?”

Even developed States are hostage to mega multinational financial “entities” and subordinated to their dictat.

Follow the money trail” is the principal rule for investigating criminal activities of mafia, dirty politicians, money launderer, and cases of conflict of interests in public institutions dealing with private enterprises.

“Follow the money trail” is a valid guiding rod to investigating how current deteriorating moral values and ethical conducts are making inroads into our societies and taking ascendency over well-tested sets of values.

Any sane thinking individual can find a direct link between how financial multinationals function and their corresponding predominant value system.

Financial multinationals are disseminating, by their global branches, and their affiliation with other companies and media, by their close cooperation with political organizations and States governing bodies, the value system and ethical standards that promote their interests (shareholders) and mentality of financial profit by all means.

As one State erect barriers to influx of unnecessary products and product competing with its autonomy, economic and financial security, and preserving its scarce resources, you find multinational companies vigorously push forward, dislodge the barriers and exploit resources of weaker nations.

Financial multinationals and multinational enterprises bribe their way and threaten with the heavy stick of their original powerful nations to impose their will and interests with makeshift contracts, not even valid in any serious court of justice.

Ironically, while a financial multinational threatens with embargo and sanctions, supported by its powerful government, it really don’t give a damn of the citizens of its original country: Money and profit have no restrictive citizens or smelling race. Money and profit  have no standard particular social value.

Who control a multinational corporation?  You might reply:

“He is the appointed General Director by the elected board members.”  Who control the board of directors?  You might say: The shareholders.  And you carry on your excuses for exploiting people and nations on the premise that shareholders invested for profit and they are generally not aware how the corporation do business on their behalf.

There are figure-head shareholders who elect nobody, and shareholders extending their voting rights to a third-party, and super electing body or “club of the old money

For example, you say this dictator control this State, and who control the dictators?  You might say the bondholders or the multinational financial institutions controlled by the club of old money.  And you ask: “who are these clubs of old money?”

And you start reading biographies of these old crooks who “whitened their money in highway-robbery schemes” and how their inheritors legitimately resumed the same crooked behavior:

They were elected to political offices and they finance election campaigns, and fund lobbies for special interest laws.

A “moral entity”?

Time to start redefining what a moral entity means.

It is time to get outraged big time and return the power and rights to the people.

Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 150

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

The foundations of capitalism have proven Not to function except within strong State institutions, which are almost totally controlled by the capitalist classes.

The one foundation that all economic systems in developed States share is free global trade, which means the liberty to exploiting the developing countries in natural resources and cheap labor. (And much lower interest rates on loan)

What’s the next step at the UN? Relative to Yemen, the millions succumbing to the cholera epidemic, the thousands dying like flies from diphtheria, undrinkable water, famine, lack of medical facilities and medicine?

What’s next at the UN concerning Palestinians, Palestinian State, and Palestinian entity and identity?

Chacun raconte sa vie comme ca l’arrange, et les autres qui la raconte comme ca leur arrange? Arranger peut avoir des connotations vilaines

We marry at an early age to basically flee home. If you disagree, from experience, do share your opinions.

Sadness doesn’t need to be treated with the urgency of a shark attack.

The inability to “just get over it” is called being in a depressed mood. Get over this lame sentence.

You cannot cure clinical depression by suggesting to eat ice cream. Maybe eating ice cream is Not meant for “normal people”?

Don’t think that being sad and being OK are incompatible. Yes, we can be sad and OK at the exact same time. TV, movies, popular songs and even people tell us if we’re not happy, there’s something wrong. and we’re taught that sadness is unnatural, and we must resist it. In truth, it’s natural and it’s healthy to accept sadness and know it won’t last forever. It means you are a reflective person

“Hey, call or text me anytime, but I might not be able to get back to you that same day.” It’s totally cool for you to make a narrow offer with really clear boundaries.
