Capitalism’s Moral Failure, by Sankar Chatterjee

At dusk John and his Bhutanese guide Dorji began hiking toward Taktsang, a holy ancient Buddhist temple perched on a hanging Himalayan cliff near Paro. Soon the sun appeared at horizon, while colorful magpies began flying.

John noticed discarded empty packages and cans littered throughout. Dorji explained that multinational corporations, taking advantage of globalization, had been flooding his beautiful poor nation with unhealthy snacks. However they provide no funding for disposing their products’ waste.

At the monastery, Dorji requested empty sacks from the caretaker. During return, the international duo combining their senses of moral responsibilities collected the waste for recycling.
