I’m actually surprised that I’ve never posted this on my blog before. It’s over a year old, but I still believe it’s true.
(Update, 4/4/2012): Some links added to article.)
I’ve never been an extremist. I’ve never been a conspiracy nut. I’ve never been one who has particularly believed in the “evil corporate executive” stereotype that is at the center of so many plots on TV and in film.
I do think that more often than not, anyone who rises to a position of great power or authority must have a certain element of narcissism and ruthlessness in their nature in order to get there. And yet, I’ve still believed that generally speaking, corporate executives have some degree of moral compass to guide them in what they do.
But the last few years have really strained my basically trusting nature.
