|Meg - compassionate or callous?|
Take Meg Whitman, she made a nice fortune running Ebay. She then ran for the position of Governor of California, spending some of her own money to have the voters reject her. The people of California decided she was unfit to be Governor. Now she's running Hewlett-Packard and cutting 27,000 jobs. She's going to make Hewlett-Packard successful. Does she care about the people who are losing their jobs? Hell no. She's getting paid another fortune to make that company make money, not to demonstrate care and concern. That's not part of her persona. She doesn't want to be Mother Theresa. She wants to be in charge. This is true for all successful business men, it's not about creating jobs, it's not about about controlling people's lives, because people don't matter to successful business men.
