BeeDeeDubbleU, I could not agree more that much of what corporations do is hideous, immoral, damaging to society and the environment, and more. I believe the corporation's rights as "person" must be destroyed and that the recklessness of businesses should be reined in by regulation. But I also believe it is not my job as a businessperson to do this. It is my job as a citizen. As a businessperson, my job is to make a living--for me, in an ethical and pleasurable way. My job as a citizen is completely different, IMO. It's not that I think these two jobs are mutually exclusive, but I don't see the point of railing against the antics of Google when we have to first survive those antics as businesspeople. If we don't do that, it will be more difficult for us to work against those antics as citizens.
