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 planet‚Äôs
dominant society, but our culture and our corporations and other
institutions act in ways that can only be described as predatory
vis-√†-vis those who are less industrialized, less wealthy, and less
able to protect themselves.
