Corporate Disloyalty

Old Right Nader is right again to ask this question about what "is not a left-right divide" — Whatever Happened to Corporate Patriotism? "For as Pat Buchanan has said, if these U.S. corporations are not loyal to us, why should we be loyal to them?"

Taking the word "patriotism" back to its root, I'm reminded of what Christopher Lasch said: "It is no longer an unwritten law of American capitalism that industry will attempt to maintain wages at a level that allows a single wage to support a family."

Corporations are created by the State. If the are not loyal to the nation that the State exists to protect, why indeed should the nation, as Buchanan rightly points out, be loyal to the corporations?

Glad to see your reading of Lasch is joined with an appreciation of Buchanan.

They know that this is a depression and wish to make as much as possible for their retirement. Life is not continuous, it is episodic.
