    Once economic security is achieved, people begin moving up the pyramid, seeking "belonging", "self-esteem" and "self-actualization" as fully-participating members of the social whole.

    And the corporate system, where a handful of people make all the social and economic decisions, is utterly incapable of providing those things. The corporate system itself is set up specifically so unelected wealth-holders get to make all the decisions.  The only way people can become self-actualized is if they themselves are also decision-makers, whether it is in the social, economic or political sphere.  We call that "democracy". Corporations have none. People will want decision-making power within the corporations.  The corporations want nothing of the sort.

    The inevitable end result is that economic and social decision-makers must all become freely-elected democratic positions, just as political decision-makers are.  Democracy outside the workplace, democracy inside the workplace.
