This is PLAIN DUMB of you to say.
This is on par with MBM's claim that since I was an employee of the government that I am equivalent to a person receiving Welfare from the government. The key concept being that I was TRADING my skill and labor in exchange for a pay check. A person receiving Welfare is benefiting from the fact that they live in a nation that has certain standards of living and this check represents the nation's attempt to lift them up to this standard.
(or more causticly put - They are benefiting from the fact that their daddy insemiated their momma in a country that has a particular standard of living that they are able to consume)
Poor Nmaginate. A little boy inside. He is left to attempt to pick apart what I say rather than put forth free standing concepts of his own.
If he were REALLY DEEP he would not have made this comment: "Corps are good for you. As you can see, you need them. Cause when they're gone... Look at what happens."
Instead he would make note of the SYSTEM and how these corporations are nothing more than entities that have several functions. They produce products or services that are in demand by the market. They give their workers the ability to exchange their labor for salaries that they are able to live off of. These corporations serve as stores of value with their shares being traded on the stock market with people CAPITALIZING on their increasing value.
Even Noah The African can admit that his city of Detroit was built upon the backs of the big 3 auto makers. What is it going to take to bring Nmaginate (and Isome) into the real world?
