All corporations are inherently sociopathic, lacking in empathy, remorse, guilt...

A corporation pays my salary, so they can't be all bad.

Assigning any type of pathos to a corporation is silly. They have no emotions. I could just as usefully wonder if my desklamp is bored.

Claiming that a company lacks empathy is like claiming that democracy lacks a rosemary-garlic flavor. Lacking the capacity for emotions doesn't make something inherently evil or bad, it's simply a trait shared by essentially everything that is not human.

Would a locomotive be evil for crushing anything that gets in its way? We have a tendency to think that way about powerful corporations, when instead, we should be concerned about where we place the tracks (the laws).
