10/8/13 Bruni & Uelman

Text #1: "The businesses foster communion with employees by paying particular attention to their health, well-being, and development."

Response #1: This is a strategy more American companies should follow. Many European and Asian companies pride themselves on caring for, respecting and developing their employees as a part of their culture. This makes employees more productive and improves their self worth. American corporations however belittle and misuse their employees and often pit them against each other in a greed fueled attempt at short term profits.

Text #2: "If this is how human beings really are, than the basis for a common life cannot be love, but fear"

Response #2: I believe that fear of consequences is the driving force behind the cohesion of society. The author is basically saying communities come about because people are forced to work together under some kind of threat, and I agree. Even in today's society a lot of financial agencies and corporations work together simply because they have to in order to increase profits and stay within the bounds of law, if their is no regulation than their is no point in trade or community because it becomes survival of the fittest.
