@AvatarJohn "And corporations are just people who want to make something of themselves and contribute to society. But... brainwashed morons won't hear that." Wait... what? Is that the height of ignorance or brilliant trolling? Methinks it is you who is the brainwashed moron.

'And corporations are just people...`
Well, apparently that is the legal status in the US, but not really.
As William Hazlitt put it;
`Corporate bodies are more corrupt and profligate than individuals, because they have more power to do mischief, and are less amenable to disgrace or punishment. They feel neither shame, remorse, gratitude, nor good-will. The principle of private or natural conscience is extinguished in each individual (we have no moral sense in the breasts of others), and nothing is considered but how the united efforts of the whole (released from idle scruples) may be best directed to the obtaining of political advantages and privileges to be shared as common spoil.`
