Economic Systems

Corporations

Human boundaries that form the definition of any collective social structure are dependent on the humans who create them. These entities can have any attributes humans can imagine and assign to those entities. The idea that economic entities should have similar rights as individual human economic actors is absurd.

I believe that the underlying purpose of capital accumulation is directed toward achieving elevated social rank and the exploitation of that rank for power within an individuals social milieu.
