Bring Back the Lobotomy!

At some point, a person understands that both good and evil exists within them and they can, deliberately and intentionally, choose to do more of the good and less of the bad throughout their lifetime. But people also create systems (i.e., judicial, economic, political, educational etc.) that are incapable of having this understanding and acting upon it conscientiously. In other words, they can do no good; they can only do evil, because the “good” they do, they only do unto themselves (“evil” being anything that suppresses the “good”.) Even if we concede that corporations are people, what kind of people are they? The answer is simple: they are sociopaths, psychopaths and criminals. We need to confront that our world is run by psychopaths who, having no empathy for others, are fundamentally corrupt and amoral. They have no business with access to any power, authority or influence whatsoever. We should treat corporations and their political lobbyists (and the religions for which they stand) the same way we used to treat the criminally insane: bring back the lobotomy.
