Corporate America. Could it be...Satan?!

I've worked for huge companies, medium-sized ones, smallish ones---and they are all evil. All run by the devil's excel spreadsheet-crazed minions. At my last job I led this Dilbertesque cubicle-bound existence, barely ever seeing the light of day. And all for what? My once a year 3% raise.

"You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it. Is that clear? You think you merely stopped a business deal. That is not the case. The Arabs have taken millions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back. It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity. It is ecological balance. You are an old man, who thinks in terms of nations, and peoples. There are no nations, there are no peoples, there are no Russians, there are no Arabs, there are no Third Worlds; there is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems. One vast and interwoven, interacting, multi-variant, multi-national dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, Reichmarks, Rubles, Pounds and Sheckles. "
