"Community through capitalism" is the mantra. Together there is nothing we can't do, and by modeling my personal life on a corporation it allows all of us to be rewarded when great things happen. If no man is an island then no man should be a sole proprietorship. Let's make it happen.
My life is broken into shares. You can buy them and you can sell them, but the more you have the more power you hold over my life. And the more power you have over my life, the more control you have over what happens next.
When I face a hard choice I don't turn to my family, my close friends, or a psychic hotline. I turn to my shareholders. I trust they will guide me to the choices that result in a higher stock price. Then we all win.
There are hundreds of shareholders all across the globe. A network of like-minded people all coming together to control a single person's life. But we also hang out sometimes and just chat about coffee lids, politics, or dogs.
