Cynical Thoughts

July 7, 2008

I’ve been having some cynical thoughts lately and not knowing what to do with them, I’ll just post them here.

This is a great discussion about the brave new idea of “creative capitalism” (where’s the destruction?). My take on corporate responsability is that firms want to look good so as to avoid being persecuted by government regulations. It’s a form of voluntary self-punishment in anticipation for worse things to come.

Second ugly thought. Government likes public education because it’s a form of thought control, but not for the kids, for the parents. In fact, it’s well-observed that kids will say almost anything that comes through their minds and will also repeat almost everything they hear uttered at home.
