Ideological disconnect

I am suffering from ideological disconnect. I find myself with friends who (1) run a hedge fund, and (2) represent one of the world’s major publishing companies, known to many as a kind of evil empire. That, in itself, is a disconnect. But, beyond that, both of them are down-to-earth, thoughtful, caring human beings. Highly intelligent, too, but that goes without saying, I suppose. The villians on TV are highly intelligent. What I’m having to deal with now is that perhaps business, even big business, represents an opportunity for transformation. Certainly the fact that my friends are where they are, yet talking about “trust” and “ethics,” is something to be hopeful about.

One thought on “Ideological disconnect

  1. Businesses are also made up of individuals, many of whom make choices to do what they do because they are good at it, they enjoy what they do and maybe even because they think they can effect change from the inside. And yet I also think we can learn from them as well, even if it is only to help understand our own choices.
