I can believe you. But the corporation is a separate personality from
the real people who work within them, just as the synthetic chemical
these corporations create is different from the natural elements that
comprise the synthetic. The corporation is a separate person, a legal
creation with very different (and non-biological) needs and instincts
(look at their corporate charters).

And this tendency to humanize a non-human, purely legal concoction
like the corporation -- and therefore accord it more rights than it is
entitled to -- is even more disturbing to me. I should be able to kill
a corporation that threatens my community without any moral qualms,
because corporations are not living organisms.
They are not organic, to go back to the topic of the thread.

You are right, that because corporations are increasingly intruding
into human social realms where they had no business to intrude before,
they are also becoming a political and social issue.

Maybe not evil, but perhaps a cancerous growth.
