I see lots people and most of the media are railing against the “evil corporations.” Is it determined by line of business, size or revenue?

It's not the corporations that are evil, but the people that run them.

Was Sam Walton evil when he started his Walmart?

When do they become evil?

I didn't say all people who run corporations are evil.

James Sinegal and the executives at COSTCO are a perfect example of people who aren't evil. It's reflected in the company's strong employee-centric culture and the high quality of their products.

Which one is evil then? How do we determine that?

It depends on the culture that people running the corporation have established.

When it sells aborted baby body parts that would cross the line into evil !!!

When is sells body parts from convicted criminals its a step up but still crossing the line into evil !!!

When its core business is murder incorporated that's a bridge to far and no getting back from evil !!!

Are the people doing business with the 3 above evil or just contributors to evil ?

Its up to the individual, I suppose !!! Are they contributing to the common good ???

Explain evil please. Right, wrong,good , bad ,evil are relative terms, especially when it involves money.

Papa Johns I considered kind of evil. I am no fan of Obama's ACA, but at least my companies and the company I work for did our part to make sure the employees had health insurance.

Papa Johns actually slashed all his full time workers to part time to get out of having to pay for coverage, and then he took the money he saved at the end of the year to buy himself another mansion.

Disney is borderline evil in my opinion. We already know the company buys off congress to keep pushing the public domain copyright laws so Disney can retain the rights of Mickey Mouse. This is stuff we know the company has already done. What are some of the stuff that we don't know about? They practically own Orlando, and are buying up everything that they can, and nobody in congress seems to want to challenge them with having a monopoly.

I got a great solution for you - don’t work for Papa Johns.

It’s their money and they can do whatever they damn please.
