Type="TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_0";
StatementText=[=[People blame business for the despoiling of the world. They believe one cannot cherish a thing and profit from it at the same time. People are fools. They do not realize you cannot have one without the other. Profit is preservation.]=];};
 
TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_1={
Type="TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_1";
PromptText=[=[Impossible! Corporations ruined Old Earth!]=];
StatementText=[=[You simpleton. Without corporate enterprise, we never would have gotten here. Our ships and technology would never have been developed. The scarce resources on Earth would have been consumed by starving mobs. Corporations took control. Corporations made sure resources were saved, rationed, applied to their necessary ends. Without commercial enterprise, the Old Earth you remember never would have existed.]=];};
 
TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_2={
Type="TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_2";
PromptText=[=[Perhaps not. But business is certainly capable of great damage.]=];};
 
TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_3={
Type="TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_3";
PromptText=[=[That cannot be true. Profit leads to corruption and waste.]=];
StatementText=[=[Profit does not lead to waste. Greed does. Greed, inexperience, and short-sightedness. Our forebears on Earth were led by some profoundly stupid people. The result was the Great Mistake. People think our system broke down because it was being administered by buffoons. A failure of management, not design. The lesson is not to change the system, but make sure it works as intended.]=];};

TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_5={
Type="TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_5";
PromptText=[=[I absolutely agree. Business is beneficial to our world.]=];
StatementText=[=[Not just beneficial. Vital. Altruists who claim humankind can simply put aside their differences and work together are living in a fantasy. We all saw the Great Mistake as it happened. Differences are a fundamental fact of human nature. Economics -- commerce --these provide structure to channel and cultivate those differences. In business, humanity in its truest nature flourishes. And how can we improve our world if we cannot thrive ourselves?]=];};

TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_7={
Type="TOPIC_FIELDING_CORPORATE_VALUE_7";
PromptText=[=[That sounds unlikely. How can this be true?]=];
StatementText=[=[Think about it. What protects a resource from destruction? What prevents people fighting over it, ruining it, squandering it? Ownership. Assignation of value commensurate with its capacity to provide. Economics ensures that everything is preserved, employed, and disposed of to its greatest extent, to the greatest possible benefit, with the greatest care. Everything is a resource, and business is the guiding hand that takes care of it all. Commerce protects humanity against itself.]=];};
