The Pathology of Wealth
Program #PARM032. Recorded in Berkeley, CA on January 06, 2012.
As the planet moves closer
to environmental catastrophe, the captains of industry, the robber barons of
the age, could hardly be bothered. They have more important matters to
consider. Making money. And they better be on the ball and deliver those
dividends because if they don't they will soon be replaced. Profits uber alles
is the guiding mantra. Environment. Schvironment. It gets in the way. Sure
they'll recycle paper and glass but forget about doing anything substantial.
Pursuing new corporate earning opportunities and wealth accumulation are in
capitalism's DNA. The owners of the economy, the 1%, are operating from the tar
sands in Alberta to fracking in Pennsylvania. They have got their eyes on the
only prize that matters to them. The lust for lucre continues unabated.
