    Corporations are just not "people friendly".

    Or didn't you know?

    Corporations are not people at all, a corporation is a business entity. That business entity exsists for one purpose, to make a profit.

    And profits are people friendly, thus: The purpose of corporations is a people friendly purpose.

    Profit is good up to the point it exploits. At that point, it becomes bad. Hence, as long as a corporation is run by people with consciences... corporations are people friendly.

    You neocon cluckers need to check yourselves. Business should take place inside some sort of moral framework. Do you moral christians really believe there should be no moral contraints on business whatsoever? Is it fine that we encourage china's totalitarianism by buying all their crap? Is it really?

    So whats the plan? Want the government to legislate morality to corporations? If you don't like corporations dealing with China or any other regime, then don't give them your business. Its called capitalism, the power is in the hands of the consumer, not the government.
