They Don't Care About You

I am not opposed to people getting wealthy, being wealthy, or staying wealthy. It just needs to be done responsibly, respectfully, and consciously. But unfettered capitalistic greed that could care less who or what it exploits and harms needs to be curtailed. I know many rich people who care deeply about others. Some say they would be happy to pay more taxes, if it were required of them, and they know it should be.

How and why did the freedom to pursue happiness come to include a right to damage the environment and exploit other human beings, turning them into wage slaves? We have more legislation in place protecting corporations, than people. We have a Supreme Court that has ruled corporations are people. We have a congress that worships the wealthy while blaming and punishing the poor.
