That's a perfectly shortsighted and socially irresponsible way to view
things, luckily enough various societies have put control measures in
place to stop people who err into your thought-pattern pathology. I
mentioned some of them in the previous email.

Here are some examples of where various entities recognize the issue
in your train of reasoning:

- governments build roads
- work places set up buses to get their workers to the factory hall
- governments build silos to store milk and processors to create
butter (= long-term storage of milk) to support the production

Given the prolific acceptance of the above, I would say few people in
charge get to exercise your views.

As a company grows large and its products become more and more
important to various industries, with the business it brings in it
accepts a responsibility. This is recognized in various ways around
the world. In dire cases -- even in free-market economies -- the
government can step in and take hold of a company that's doing wrong.
Example: bank bailouts.

It's very simple to come up with a defeated point of view and call
everyone as unwise dreamers who are disconnected from the dire, gray
reality, David.

>From my point of view, with the correct organization there can be
quite an impact. For one thing, if all small-time synth and studio
equipment builders came together and stated their, however meagre,
requirements, then it might well add up to very significant numbers,
and ADI would likely listen to that.

If the socioeconomic impact of killing business is measured, very
likely governments are likely to listen to that.
