People in companies may care a great deal, but the bottom line is that stock holders usually don't, executives don't unless it affects their bonus. The ones running the company care about money, regardless of how the designers may feel and the ones in charge call the shots.
Well, you're wrong. So apparently my "big bad companies" assumption was correct after all. There are quite a few examples of stock holders and executives that are interested in more than simply money.
Companies want to make money. They can and do put everything second to that.
The first one is most often true, but the second one is not. Are there companies for which it's true? Certainly. Is it true for all of them? Certainly not.
I absolutely agree that most companies have a majority of employees that care, but the COMPANY does not.
A "Company" isn't an actual individual, so sure, if you want to be pedantic about it, yes, it can't actually care about anything. But, then, it also can't care about making money.
And speaking of false dichotomies, to stand on the grounds of I'm right/you're wrong puts you squarely in the crosshairs of hypocrisy to your own complaint about everyone else having a false dichotomy.
You're joking, right? It's hard to believe that someone could actually put forth that argument seriously. But on the offchance you are that foolish, my comment was about false
dichotomies. If I'm making an argument that contradicts yours, there is nothing false, it's a true dichotomy.
