It's Just Business

Whenever I hear someone say "it's just business" in order to magically justify some decision to ignore the humanity of individual people, I remember that it's adapted from a line in The Godfather spoken by Michael Corleone at the precise momentwhen he decides to become a murderous sociopath. We should maybe stop running businesses like fictional mafia families.

I've seen this movie a couple of times yet never made this connection. 

Now that I know "it's just business" comes from The Godfather, I'll use this in business meetings 😊
