    And per the Diarist's comment:

    In our current system, corporations look for ways to commit destructive acts under the law. They use the law as an aid for wrong-doing or pay to have the law changed to their advantage. A person harmed by a corporation has to navigate a mine field of law that has been orchestrated by the corporation to put the average person at a disadvantage.
    (Emphasis added.)

    Corporate influence on the rule of law to the detriment of Common Citizens may include the following (to name a few):

    Creating permissions to exploit, pillage, and despoil The Commons.

    Creating barriers to redress of Corporate crimes.
    (Via laws as cited in the Diary, or by more subtle and insidious acts of "regulatory capture" by which enforcement and industry become intertwined.

    Creating barriers to competition by enabling laws which impact smaller business disproportionately due to a cost of compliance representing a higher percentage of revenue in comparison to a large corporation.

    I kinda screwed up with a careless uprate so (for now?) I'm a "No Rate" pariah. So when I give a comment "+110% n/t", please consider that a recommend. (That's my workaround fix to participating in this community!)
