The #1 priority of a business is whatever the business creator wants it to be. Making money is a common goal, and a more common requirement, but it is not - and should not - be the #1 priority. Would you describe your #1 priority as "eating"? Is eating the most important thing in your life? Why do people persist in arguing points of business as if business is a starving beast that cannot think of any higher goal than its next meal?

You are acting like all businesses are ravening beasts who don't have any food and are not allowed to think of any other needs before food because of this. I maintain that businesses are as complex as people (being made up of people), and most of them are not so starved as to need to put basic survival as their primary, utmost priority. The only people that consider "survival" to be their top priority are those living in the deepest of misery. Do you maintain that all businesses are so poverty-stricken as to be likened to them?
