Personal Responsibility

         To understand a corporation you must first look the people running the business. For some reason we don’t hold corporation accountable for the suffer, death, and destruction they cause. In the end the only thing they do is a pay a fine and continue on doing whatever they can do to make a profit.

          If a person were to kill another then that said person would go to jail. When a corporation kills or harms workers they pay a fine. A corporation is defined as a living thing. It is not person or even livining. Four walls is all a corporation will ever be. We allow for people to willing hurt each other everyday, and we stay silent or we just don’t care enough to know. The world is a sad place for anyone not growing with wealth. Money is the only thing to work for, to want. All needs can be satisfied by the more money we make. Greed is blessing and curse. Greed can get you up to go work but it also can make you screw over your neighbor to get a few bucks. But as individuals if we do “bad” things we will be held accountable for our actions. If a cooperation is a person, then they should be held accountable to the same extent that a regular person would. The share holder are what make up this person. Every CEO in history will tell you the share holder are all that matter. Make the share holder happy and you to keep your job. If the CEO only acts in the interest of the share holders then the share holders should be help accountable for the actions of the CEO. IF a CEO willing is producing a product with a default. Investing is only about the return. “How much can this company make me.” You shouldn’t have reward without risk, you can lose money when investing. But money isn’t life, its not living. 

     When you invest in a company, you become apart of that company. The good the bad and ugly, your apart of it all. Share holders should care and if they don’t then make them. When you invest you don’t check factories or working conditions or even think about the everyday workers. There no human contact, its just money to be made. For people to care there life must be directly affected by their actions. When people aren’t held accountable of course there going to do things for their own good. If telling me I can create a car that explodes and all I have to do after is pay fine and ill still make millions. Ill make the car, what do I care im not driving it. People only care when their way of life is at jeopardy. If an individual persons actions can land them in prison, then a corporation which is a person should also abide by the same laws as everyone else. Share holder are what make up this person, you can fire CEO's, workers, but there not the people in charge. If investing is all about the money and we forget about the people then how can we consider ourselves civilized. We don’t learn from our history the only purpose it serves is to document what has happened. We are constantly making the same mistakes, we are constantly costing people lives. Would you want to live you life with a birth defect caused by illegal dumping? Until the corporations share holders are held accountable for their actions, it will always be about the bottom line. Money. And if value money over human life, then the future is already lost.
