Another reminder that we are

Another reminder that we are dealing not simply with mean-spirited ideologues but with enemies of humanity.

The Equal Opportunity

The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission does not have strong enough laws to prevent companies from engaging in certain forms of discrimination.  Americans seem to believe that companies should be allowed to do as they please, even if this goes against the economic interests of -- you guessed it -- individual, average Americans.

Also, I have not seen much criticism anywhere of college and universities which train corporate managers in business schools and in other professional areas such as engineers who are promoted to being able to hire other engineers.  People in higher education tend to be rather defensive  when it comes to criticisms leveled against them that they are not doing enough to teach ethics of any kind, let alone business ethics. 

The system is broken because poor decisions have been and are continuing to be made, particuarly when it comes to jobs and employment.

A well deserved criticism, especially in the age of "outcome-based" education.
