People who believe corporations are inherently evil are inherently stupid.

It is better to work for a corporation than an authoritarian government dictatorship.

Yes because money is our current method of trading goods and services that people need to live happy productive lives. What corporations produce is what other people want to purchase so they can also live happy productive lives.

If a corporation cheats or hurts people they should be punished under law. Ever watch the tv show Whistleblower? Wells Fargo will pay $575 million for it's financial customer scam. So corporations can be held accountable. Many still get away with unethical practices. Employees and customers have to stand up against them, like current Communications Workers Union strike against ATT that just started again.

I do think we need laws that ensure corporations act ethical.

We should not fall for in this commie guys trap. His posts may seem supportive of capitalism and corporations, but he hates them and still wants Chinese style state ownership of everything. Typical of them - wants American investment, but bans fb, google and uber and amazon citing "competition" . ( Trump understands this, but many do not) .

I suspect you were throwing that quote at me.

Corporations are NOT inherently EVIL. There are good and moral corporations.

I did give a list of corporations that I thought were neither good or moral. A good guide to a immoral corporation is one that says "its the bottom line".

As noted, by other posters....there need to be limits on governments AND corporations.

My biggest gripe with a lot of big US based multi-national corporations are the ones who promote leftist politics, outsourcing and open borders.

For all the folks in the back:

The U.S. government is a corporation.

Doesn't the same or a similar concept apply to fascist, socialist, and communist governments?

Actually, they have their fellow Africans to thank for capturing them and selling them into slavery, a practice that still exists in Africa to this day.
