Re: outrageous

"the premise that ALL corporations are inherently evil, and must be punished, is a COMMUNIST one. It should be rejected on THAT basis, alone."

Corporations exist to make profit for shareholders - since shareholders (the generic blob of shareholders represented by Wall Street) are only interested in short term profits and dividends then their prime motivation is money.

And since we know that the root of all evil is the love of money I think we can reasonably suggest that corporations have an inherent bias to evil.
