Comment: She's not entirely offbase.

She's not entirely offbase.

She may be trying to make a case against the free market, but that's not exactly the way I heard it.

The fact is that the profit motive as applied by Corporations (artificial, government created people) does always result in harm and fascism.

The profit motive for people, results in a thriving, healthy economy and culture.

So, as we know, it is the government involvement which creates the problem. But her assessment isn't entirely inaccurate, just less informed than it could be. We need to be able to clearly articulate to those people, when it comes up, just exactly why the government involvement creates the evil version of the profit motive, and how in the absence of government the profit motive is a beneficial factor.
