Scenes from the War of our Ruling Class Against the Rest of Us January 25, 2012

Your iPhone Was Built, In Part, By 13 Year-Olds Working 16 Hours A Day For 70 Cents An Hour

Funniest part. When you protest this sort of crap, the cry goes up that the protestor is the one engaging in “class warfare”. Indeed, we are actually asked to believe that not only is the Evilcorp not robbing the country that made its success possible by sending jobs overseas, but it is actually doing a huge favor to the toiling serfs it graciously exploits abroad.

The problem with great wealth and power is that it shields you from the consequences of the human capacity for sin. As a result, there is a natural tendency to drift away from normal human obligations to family, the weak, and God. It is not impossible for the rich to be saved, of course. But not for nothing does Jesus speak of camels and the eyes of needles. And when it comes to multinational corporations we are looking at a thing that not only has no soul, but no country either. Hence, it should not surprise us that the super-rich, while they may use patriotism as a tool for manipulating the little people who actually love their country, have less and less concern for the country they loot and the people they exploit.
