in defense of jared kushner
i wanted to start a thread after watching the kushner companies episode - in defense of jared kushner. it is mentioned a few times during the episode that kushner companies does not care about people, it is only about cash flow for them. since kushner companies is a business and not a community development corporation i don't see why kushner companies should be thought to have the responsibility to care about people. i am sure that kushner companies would care about people if it was more profitable to care about people than it was to not care about people. rather than placing the blame on kushner companies for its predatory/life-threatening behavior, i think that the blame should be placed on the government for failing to put strong enough penalties in place in order to deter companies like kushner companies from behaving in predatory/life-threatening ways. the purpose of government is to prevent people from behaving like savages. kushner companies should be thanked for exposing the government's incompetence. part of the episode shows how kushner companies uses government channels to fuck over its tenants (arrest warrants, wage garnishment) and another part of the episode shows how bad the regulators are at stopping kushner companies from doing what they don't want kushner companies to be doing (who cares if you 'caught' them six times if catching them doesn't stop them from continuing to operate the same way).
