Mercenary Morality

The process of extracting money is mindless, not malevolent. The CEOs of soda, candy, and fast food companies don't lust for making others fat and sick. They just want to get money from weak people.

Entertainment CEOs don't want to make you stupid and dull. They only want to register you as a watcher to sell to advertisers. Inevitably, you have to give up a lot of living to watch the screen, and executives know that, but they are interested in your money, not the reduction of your quality of life.

Politicians make society progressively worse, but they don't usually hate the public. They just need to make changes that benefit the politician's personal purposes. They know people are being hurt, but that's not their motive.

Hired mercenaries don't care about what happens after their mission. They complete it and move on to the next one. They aren't paid to assess the morality of their actions.

Mercenaries take on difficult and dirty work knowing their bosses are involved in nonsense that depends on acquiring talent for money.

The enterprising boss envisions a means to an end. The mercenary doesn't look into details, only offering muscle to get something done.

This detachment is plain enough when mercenary labor is used for killing, heists, and enforcing. The same lack of concern for what happens to others also follows from all labor done for pay. People do their jobs as instructed and never consider the purpose or consequences of their actions.
