    With events the last few days it's very clear that some people thing corporations are the face of evil in the world. Why?

    What is it that makes corporations so much worse than LLCs, Partnerships, sole proprietorship?

    Also, what's so evil about profits? Why is it wrong for companies of any size and shape actually producing a profit?

    Because the left no longer practice independent thought. They think and speak alike. Much like the Stepford Wives.

    They provide jobs and make a profit at the same time.

    Prosperity=Evil

    The total shame of those terrible evil corporations giving people jobs and still making a profit for the people who make the corporation possible. How dare they pay people to make them a profit.....

    My big question is why do hard right free market capitalists think they're so great? In a world with no government interference with business (isn't that what you guys want?), organizations like LLCs would never exist - they only exist now to circumvent liability laws and such. I have no problems with profits - but if you guys want people to get by without help from the government, I think corporations should have to get by without government help too.

    I for one do not think a company has the ability to be evil if you really think about it, further profits, and success are in my opnion great things. As some of you know, my issue with the recent decision has to do with the the belief that compaines should have the ability to advocate for political candidates one in which I do not happen to agree with for one very obvious reason which I won't repeat here as it's in other posts. To assert though that companies are evil or that providing a product or service at a profit is somehow evil is nonsense.

    Corporations are not evil.

    The influence they can now have is evil.

    They are run by people and some people are good and some are evil.

    Not all with massive money are angels.

    Some are people who HATE America and the freedoms we used to stand for.

    You are asking libtards to give reasons for their beliefs... they don't have any. They simply spout off what they heard at their buds house when they were all sitting around smoking the dope or what they say on the bumper of a car.

    They don't have explanations, only uneducated opinions.

    Do you really want to know why corporations are evil?

    Do you want me to tell you?

    Do you want the truth?

    Well, you can't handle the truth.

    Corporations are evil because they are the creation of humans.

    And humans are evil.
