I see what you are saying on "people working together".
It is my belief that people are all over the map on the totality of interests. So no group that, for instance, I belonged to, could ever really represent "me" politically. So, why should the place I worked at be able/allowed to "speak/influence" for me? If I belonged to a union, why should they? Should my Church speak
On the "removing everyone's eyes" part, I really don't see it that way.
A, corporate entities have no eyes to remove. Their skin in the political game becomes fostering an environment where they survive and thrive
I's like letting dogs vote. Their eyes are ( or should be ) the owners, stockholders, employees and customers. There is already sufficient representation.
B, I would make the analogy in terms of noise levels. I would say democracy is better served if the "i want more money" corporations were silent and all the real people were not allowed to drown others out because of an accident of birth or circumstance (yes, I mean being wealthy, noted that some do work and earn it)
How about "no taxation without representation"? Since I cannot be heard above the megaphones of the wealthy, I am really not represented.
Thank you for a reasoned and reasonable discussion.
I have had similar discussions with others on this topic, and having people misstate my position ( I don't expect many to agree with me, and I know that reasonable people can have differing viewpoints ) and use rhetorical devices. I dislike such, and am pleased we didn't go there.
