  •  Well thanks for your gross generalization. (4+ / 0-)

    Is every corporation a "corporate master?" I am a manager at a corporation, so I'm curious.

    Is every customer or client of a corporation also a "corporate master?" Is the corporation is not part of the forces of evil, are their customers still corporate masters?

    It's to be expected that any corporation can be broken into and that it's innocent customers are harmed? Who takes responsibility for that?

    •  I don't know..is it a mega corporation (8+ / 0-)

      that spans continents?  Does it sell "security" to the U.S. Government?  Does it spend more money on lobbyists than it does in taxes?

      You can split hairs all you want, but the truth is that the big money is making the rules around here and they are making them to benefit themselves.  They are pulling the ladder up behind themselves to avoid competition.

      Citizens no longer have any expectation of privacy, so why should corporations have any greater expectation of such privacy?

        So any company that does business globally is evil and deserves to be entered and stolen from.

        A company that sells a product to the US government is by definition evil.

        While I agree that big money is making the rules, you are validating theft and damage, simply based on your own personal judgement as to whether the company deserves it or not, and irregardless of the damage done to its customers who have not done anything to deserve the damage.

        Nice.

          I said can expect.  This is what happens when might makes right.  No one says that it is good, only that it is to be expected.
