We read in the newspapers how a corporation exploits its employees and subordinate companies all over the world to the hilt and has only its own advantage in mind. This makes us indignant. But we could then also look at the areas of our lives in which we act exactly like this corporation and subordinate everything and everyone to our personal advantage. On a smaller scale, so to speak.
‚But don’t we have to act for our own benefit? How else are we supposed to survive?
We have to act. That is right. Even as our own person. It’s just that our actions should serve the community and we get our advantage from the advantage we give to our community. Only there is no community in our society for whose advantage one could act in order to be able to receive an even greater advantage back from it. So we skip this gap and act, since we have to act, mainly exclusively for ourselves.
After all, there would be a community for which we could act. It is the community in mind. Only this community is too abstract for most and therefore invisible. Its advantages are not clearly recognizable and therefore non-existent for most.
