To close this out, for me, and thank you for the acknowledgement, I squirm when a CEO's is automatically discounted due to size and profitability. It
seems vogue that increase in wages is "social justice" and increases by corporations are "greed'...Ayn Rand.
The only fault I find with your views is the generality of it. The are honorable men at all levels of our society, including the wealthy/powerful.
There is a point where "truths" are (expanded/stretched?) to a point of pure politically driven "class warfare".
I will presume to suggest that, as a rule, most Americans were/are perfectly content to have leaders/policy shapers both in politics and business as
long as the general population also felt that they, also, had the opportunity to improve their lot and their children's.
This is being wiped out at all levels.
The companies you mentioned aren't high on my list. it's more the ADMs and Nestles of the world that concern me. The massive investments in the
basics...not manufacturing, but in food supply, oil, transportation those areas that would and have to survive a general collapse-and would get
immediate gov't support...
Many corporations have been forced into a lockstep compliance with this "movement". Gates is the signal example of this.
Does that clarify where I'm coming from re a bigger picture? Either way, I've enjoyed your comments.
