Business Has No Moral Obligation

Over and over, Republicans chant the mantra that businesses are exempt from moral considerations. Their sole job is to make money. They have no obligation to consider the public good or the damage they do to the environment or the health of their customers and workers other than complying with law. That is like saying rich people are exempt from the normal rules of moral conduct. Because they are rich they should be permitted to do whatever they like to whomever they like, the old droit du seigneur. They may want this licence, but that is no reason we should give it to them.
