Wisdom from Bob Dixon

I am an American who is fortunate to have had jobs that allowed me to travel to different countries. Over the past 30 years I’ve been in more than 35 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

During many of those trips I was able to talk with hundreds if not thousands of people in those countries who represented different parts of the culture, community and workforce, such as company CEO’s, and other executives, managers, engineers, production workers, hotel employees, taxi drivers, waiters and waitresses and others. Many of them were also parents.

From all of those conversations, I learned something that changed my view of the world and its people.

So since we all know this, why do we let big corporations damage our planet and our lives in pursuit of profit for their owners and share holders? Profit should be after wellbeing for people, animals and habitat.Why haven't we insisted on this? Do people really think our desires are so powerless?
