9-1-18 Technology Credibility and Business Morality

This is it!  September 1, I am off of Facebook! Some have asked what make me so sanctimonious in criticism of the platform and what do I know about technology? I explain my development in the digital world from building a computer to being an executive developing new companies.

Most importantly we need to have an honest conversation about morality in the Board Room. We have become a nation of ‘mammon seekers’ over Liberty protectors. When technology becomes the et al. to every issue in life and we have new oligarchs consolidating power: then we have some really serious things to consider.

I really would like you to consider this key resource from the Founding era. It is the “Continental Association, 20 October 1774” which details “Non-importation, Non-consumption, and Non-exportation Agreement”. My argument will always be that the only and proper way to impact the techno-oligarchs is by Non-consumption! Think about the sacrifices that the people of the Colonies accepted but even more so think about the explosion of new businesses and industry that came to be by these actions.

With that, remember Proverbs 9:1 – There is nothing new under the sun!

The mirrors of history come to reflective reality here on Samuel Adams Returns.

Oh… on a side note, check out the article on Local Levies that I’ve written at this Blog.

And because you keep asking!

Business Ethics and Dr. Abraham Kuyper

When did you have that first conversation about work ethics that dove into the plight of the common worker and those terrible rich business owners? Mine was as a young lad sitting on the periphery as my father, his two brothers and a couple of friends sat around playing poker. It was in the early 60’s when the height of the labor vs. management was raging through much of the industries and trades in the United States. The conversations at the card table could become pretty heated since there was an uneven split between the players of corporate/management types (two) and labor/union types (three).

My dad and his oldest brother were of the latter category while the younger brother of the former. Things could get heated as they evaluated the political as well as the monetary discrepancies of rich compared to the middle class. The poor were never a consideration in the conversations, ah, sometimes arguments. I always listened intently because I saw that on the one hand, emotionalism sustained the argument of the majority over the other hand, rational-factual retorts of the minority players at the table. What was the real basis of what was happening and when did the deeper conversation about this with Dad play out? Continue reading
