Power and Greed

Democratic Presidential hopeful John Edwards says corporate power and corporate greed threaten everything Americans hold dear.

Here is my comment, posted on The Nation's blog:

How can progressives insist that human nature is irredeemably corrupt when it works for a corporation, and then put all their faith in the belief that human nature becomes positively angelic when it collects a government paycheck -- so much so that it can be trusted with nearly unlimited power over the labor, property, and lives of others?

Corporate power and corporate greed are nothing compared to the nightmares of government power and government greed.
