I'm glad to hear you say that.

Sometimes I think no one understands that legal != ethical in all cases.

I can do a lot of things legally, but it would be wrong.

Likewise not everything illegal is unethical.

I still say that a company, any kind, exists to fullfill some purpose,
and that sacrificing that for money is wrong, and in the long run, not
financially sound either.

Most well wrong companies, and well balanced companies, will make money.
Maybe not as much as the growth-dependent mega-corporations, but I think
we'd be better off without those anyway.

Ever notice how no one in business seems to know how to make money
without sustained growth?
