The Evil Corporation

Posted by Jabawacefti

Much of the purportedly "progressive" agenda focuses on the alleged evils of the Corporation, or the CEOs or the "Man."

The class warfare is always a lot of fun, but seemingly perverse. We encourage hard work. Innovation. Intelligence. But when individuals reap the benefits of their hard work, suddenly they become evil. It always felt distinctly un-American to me to denigrate success. Nevertheless, there you have it.

But we learn, from time to time, that not all CEOs are alike. Rich people are people too. And some of them are exceptional. Namely, Warren Buffett.

You see, Warren Buffett is or was the President of Bershire Hathaway, one of the most profitable Corporations (insert "boo" or "hiss") in the entire world. And just this week, he decided to give most of his fortune away. To solving disease, helping the poor and the uneducated. All in all, he's decided to give away almost $30 billion to various charitable causes.

All despite the fact that he's a rich, white, CEO.

I only mention it because we always complain about enriching the rich. Frankly, I'd rather the $30 billion come from Buffett, and tell the government to pound sand when they take my stuff. I guarantee that this will do more good than any Government or Governmental organization will ever do.

I can just hear Buffett now: Golden Parachute this!
