I Should Get It On Record
I’m not a fan of the, “corporations are people,” thing. While I support the outcome of recent Supreme Court decisions, I think we’re setting a dangerous precedent that a corporation is a breathing entity. I’d prefer to have the court rule that the owners of a company are people who can govern the company as they see fit.
A personal Mozilla/Firefox vomited their boss out the door. A personal Big Oil company is evil, rather than an entity striving for profits.
So… I’m torn on where to go. I think we need to more collectively view the goals of a corporation, or even a non-profit, for its need to stay in business to accomplish its business goal. I suppose this wouldn’t be an issue of the government of the US hadn’t decided that it was a compassionate entity (thanks, GWB!) that needed to make personal decisions for 300 million people.
