Externalization - A theme from The Corporation
    #2923093 - 07/24/04 09:27 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

In watching the movie The Corporation, one thing emerged more important than the fact that corporations are legally conducted following the personality profile of a psychopath.

This issue is ?EXTERNALIZATION?.

Corporations practice externalization in order to avoid costs, responsibility of costs, implication of costs or of responsibility etc., if it is at all possible to defer those costs or responsibilities to another entity, like the consumer or the government, or the work force.

In that way the habits are established of polluting, minimizing health considerations, designing for cost savings, abusing workforces, child labor? even when producing visual blight, even breaking the law if it is guaranteed to be cheaper than obeying the law etc.

Somebody else?s responsibility ? that is the meaning of externalization. It is core to the successful operation of 90% of the large corporations today ? making it somebody else?s responsibility ? Externalize it! Outsource! Downsize!

I think the issue is also core to individuals? spiritual or philosophic stagnation. I.e. the path has to be discovered and followed for one?s self, no part of this task can be externalized. A savior is not in the cards. No one can die for your sins?

Sometimes I think I want to add this idea to some of the threads here, since many issues are raised and promoted in part only, as if completion of the concept would be some one else?s responsibility. OR that it is a good thought only if another person agrees. Or it is good if it is tougher than another approach, like winning out in a marketplace. Maybe they are all good thoughts, but one needs to work with them effectively in their own head, otherwise we come up with idea pollution, or mere deflection of responsibility.

ahh file sharing...

probably you have located the movie in a .torrent based non-royalty type mode.

I can't do file sharing.
it is an interesting step toward being a good BORG but what about the royalties?
I guess it is like a spore-ring for these ideas anyway
