Yes. In fact, to the extent the business has more wealth than you, it has more responsibility than you; proportionally the same, but in absolute terms, more, and with regard to the percentage of resources discretionally available, far more.

Let those who control the wealth of America heed Spider-Man: "With great power there must also come great responsibility."
