If I may barge in here, this is a valid interpretation of the situation as
it is.  But, a corporation is more than an "entity," it has also become a
process  -- for perpetuating an elite by developing the next generation
which, hopefully, will respond intelligently to the conditions it faces and
justify its elite status.  This is the architecture Toffler seeks to erect.




What do you mean by "respond intelligently"?  Intelligently re/ corporate
profits, or intelligently re/ humanity?  And isn't "maintain" more to the
point than "justify"?  And when you talk about the "next generation", do
you refer to the technocrats & employees or to the capitalist owners?

Please clairfy.
