Microsoft is the antithesis of humanity’s evolution.
They represent the zero-sum thinking that results in a kill-or-be-killed context as a guiding principle for living; rather than one of expansion, freedom, innovation and that which nurtures the highest aspirations one can envision for humanity’s development.
Being a financial behemoth carries with it an implicit responsibility to adhere, not to behavior that constantly searches for expedient loopholes between legality and morality; but to have a long range focus on that which nurtures humanity’s progress toward the exploration of its potential.
Microsoft is the poster-child, precursor and foreshadowing of our recent trend toward expedience and blatant exploitive moral cheating - of our social contract; political/social/ethnic/religious/philosophical unity; ecological and environmental responsibility; and progress toward becoming a global species.
Money is an interim organizational principle; whose significance is inversely proportional to our progress as a species. Not an end worth elevating to the status of corporate mantra. It is humanity’s handicap of temporary necessity.
There’s more to life than domination and survival… And our enduring tolerance/allowance for behavior of this nature, sickens me! Every second of its continuing existence, is an insult to humanity.
We’re so much better than this…
(Our recent political climate is also a source of the intensity behind this venting, obviously - but MS and recent events are all symptoms of the same social prognosis)
