How can we become fully and truly human in a world plagued by violence, pain, sorrow, greed, exploitation, war, failure and death?
Doc,Haven't we always lived in troubled times?Haven't the wealthy always been separate from us in every category (school/education, ghettos, health, nutrition)? Is he serious? a Morally Right Business? Isn't that an oxymoron? Hell most of the business of the church is morally corrupt, i.e sex crimes in the Catholic Church.Hospitals are daily caught up in ethic issues when they refuse admittance to the poor. Somewhere behind their portals the Hippocratic Oath has to be hanging; maybe behind the almighty dollar.I admire and respect Tutu, but apparently he missed the reading of Gilded Age or the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald called "Great Gatsby".
"Haven't we always lived in troubled times?Haven't the wealthy always been separate from us in every category (school/education, ghettos, health, nutrition)?Is he serious? a Morally Right Business? Isn't that an oxymoron?"I have to agree that it has always been that way. Perhaps Tutu is more optimistic than you or I. I suspect he is. I do think he describes the right way to behave, but I'm not so sure we can do it .. history seems to support your claim that we can't, at least not for long and on a wide scale.I think there can be "morally right businesses" but I suspect this may be only possible for local chains and small family businesses ... multinational corporations may be, I fear, irredeemable!
