In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
These VULTURE CAPITAL, NON-ETHICAL transactions are SAVAGING America for the American People, on behalf of a relatively few who don't care about impacts on actual fellow Americans, widening the wealth gap and survivability of America for Americans. This has to stop. CAPITALISM CAN BE USED FOR GOOD OR ILL, DEPENDING UPON THE ACTORS IN EACH CORPORATION. Morality, ethics, consideration of other human's ability to live a decent life must be considered in the impacts of these vulture capital acquisitions and subsequent gutting for the profit of the few investors. Ayn Rand's bizarre, unethical "virtue of selfishness", the Chicago School of "Economics", trickle down "economics", etc. is KILLING US. This will leave America UNSUSTAINABLE in the long run. The VICIOUS RAPACIOUSNESS OF PRIVATE EQUITY POWER must be stopped. Turning ordinary Americans into SERFS who can barely afford to live is the CAUSE of the rising tide for the Green New Deal movement and other similar movements.
