Ideological topics: Wealth Redistribution, Equality, Universal Health Care are quite contentious. Is there common ground for common good?
If the corporation were an individual, its life would be enhanced by mutually beneficial relationships. Abusive relationships, such as exploiting employees or taking advantage of the surrounding community will end badly. Isolation will end badly as well. Individuals can survive without corporations, many may want to, like children not wanting to leave the nest. I can't imagine corporations surviving without people. However, that reminds me of a funny joke: The plant of the future is a man and a dog, the man's job is to feed the dog, the dog's job is to keep the man from touching the machine.

Government has made it "too easy" to be rich and "too easy" to be poor. Not sure we are that far ahead of where we would be in equality distribution without government. We often ignore the wealth redistribution that goes from hard working people to bureaucrats. We make it too easy to be unemployed. Companies don't exist without hard working people. Companies don't exist unless there is a community to support them. Companies need to be held in higher regard in the communities, and more needs to be expected from them. Start with corporate governance, all companies must have boards with people that represent the employees, the environment, and the community. No more boards of directors that help each other get rich, pay less taxes, and not care about contributing to society. Abled bodied people need work, in the absence of employment, the government should provide sustenance in exchange for civil duties.
