Neither of these statements are facts.
Saying it's the 'right' thing to do is purely subjective. You don't know what he believes is the right thing to do, I'm sure in his mind he's already done the right thing and trying to argue that he should do YOUR right thing instead of his own right thing will never get you anywhere. It's a null argument.
It very much will affect his position at that company. His overriding goal is to make choices that keep the company strongest to the exclusion of all other considerations. If there is a choice to be made, his job is literally to make the choice that keeps the company as strong as possible. If he takes other concepts into consideration, such as 'the greater good' or 'common human decency or dignity' or even 'keep us from going extinct in a thousand years' he is quite literally not doing the job he's payed so very very much money to do. That's what could get him fired!
I personally share the same perspective of you, I think this is a dick move by a dick of a person in service to a dick corporation and it saddens me that there's no good way to make it more profitable to be ethical and responsible than it is to make every shady 'fuck you' deal you can. I think the only effective, non-violent solution to this will probably be the erosion of privacy for the upper classes, think universal ubiquitous paparazzi letting anyone who wanted to watch them 24 hours a day, even when they sleep, to make sure nobody's whispering shady evil deals into their profit hungry ears. It's only fair, the upper classes literally have the capacity to do that to any of us already, things will begin to change when we can do it back. The evil ones will wither under the glare of public attention while those honorable and respectable will be proven so and rewarded. I can't see any other positive future.
