As we all know in our bones, there is a predatory quality to our
economic system, and competition underlies all our institutions. We
prey upon each other. It may not be obvious from within our planetâ€šÃ„Ã´s
dominant society, but our culture and our corporations and other
institutions act in ways that can only be described as predatory
vis-âˆšâ€ -vis those who are less industrialized, less wealthy, and less
able to protect themselves.
