„Je mehr der Mensch den Aufgabencharakter
des Lebens erfasst, umso sinnvoller wird ihm sein Leben erscheinen.“
(Viktor E. Frankl)
The big banks (e.g. Goldman Sachs) and corporations (e.g. Monsanto) are often regarded as the enemy of we the people. From a philosophical point of view, however, that statement is problematic in several ways. First and rather obviously, it is not 'the banks and corporations' (i.e. the institutions and businesses) which bribe politicians, destroy the environment or engage in other immoral or criminal activities, but the people at the head of these institutions and businesses who engage in such actions. Secondly and as a more subtle point, one could also argue that it is not those people as a whole but rather their as well as our own 'mental impurities' - think of Christian vices or Buddhistic mental poisons, - that should best be regarded as the ultimate and most fundamental enemy of all of us.
