Yes, that is often true. And we as people have to keep the
corporations human from within, or make them human from without -
and if necessary, pierce the corporate veil to castigate the
perpetrators of any inhumanity emanating from that source.
This too, can be done via institutional mechanisms, with real people
in charge. And while this presumes that legislators too act as
responsible human beings, this *understands* that when elected
officials *fail* to behave as human beings (forgetting their own
legacy), other means may well come into play.
These other means are many, because apparently, history is a stream
originating from natural sources and not easily dammed, and damned be
those that try.
(The case of Pinochet is an example. An army is a corporation, but so
are the courts. The Berlin Wall is another case in point).

The problem then, is that some people seem to have a hard time
understanding this. While it's said: "You can't fight the system", the
truth of the matter is that "the system" is nature. For that reason,
