Allowing corporations to have their way with us is both foolish & a perilous path. These faceless entities have no empathy or care for the impact they have on society. They have no plan for what they discard. They have no desire to fix what they break.
I'd say no while we still can. The massive division in rich & poor is widening. The people have the power to change this. They must fight for a future if they want to have one for future generations. Embracing progress assuming its motives are good is no longer prudent. If our governments & politicians refuse to listen they must be removed.
Progress is only progressing if it is inclusive & adds value to the quality of life of people and is respectful of the planet with its finite resources.
