I am happy for the people who found a way to avoid oppression by moving their businesses somewhere far away from those who want to oppress them.
You think it's business being oppressed? They move their manufacturing to third world countries with lax labor and environmental protection laws, so they can make an extra billion on top of their 10 billion in revenue (note: numbers pulled right from my ass, but you get the idea), while buying off, I mean lobbying congress people to enact business friendly trade deals, and you think they're oppressed. Got it.
You are saying "greedy fucks" while talking about people that produce but you are not saying "greedy fucks" while talking about people who want to take away from those who produce. This shows a certain ... level of agenda that has nothing to do with the word or concept of greed, it has to do with the concept of entitlement to other people's productive life.
I'm sorry, who's doing the producing here? Are the top level managers, owners and stock holders doing the producing? Or is it the ground level workers who are doing the producing? You know, the ones whose wages are under constant downward pressure due the greedy fucks needing a bigger bonus and higher stock price.
Look, I know not all business is like that; not even every multinational. But the fact is that almost all of the economic gains of the past decade have gone to those who are already the richest. They are not being oppressed, nor strangled by regulation. They are doing quite well. It is the people at the bottom, like Uber drivers, who are getting the shaft. They are the ones who are to be protected by those pesky regulations. One of the functions of government should be to protect the weak from the powerful. We seem to have forgotten that.
