    Yes. All these people fighting for rights are trampling on the rights of corporations. What if the corporation dies, think of the tragedy!

    We must protect these endangered entities from the predation of individuals looking to consume them. It’s not like they need to eat. Feed the company, it must live.

    /S

    Seriously, what the fuck is even the point of living if we just end up serving a bunch institutions, desperately trying preserve them past their usefulness? If an institution doesn’t make the world better, it doesn’t need to exist.

    And fuck. CEOs taking out a salary and bonus that kills the company, a-ok, but god forbid paying the baristas enough to live.

    Funny how much support these companies need: waivers for environmental and zoning issues, noise and use variances, incentives and tax breaks, special protections, benefits, or exceptions their lobbiests arranged, artificially low minimum wages, artificially high prices, bailouts, special bankruptcy protections, tax laws written just for them, tariffs on international competition, etc etc etc etc etc.

    On top of which, various forms of wage theft cost more than all robberies, burglaries and motor vehicle thefts combined, and it’s almost never prosecuted (or only in a superficial fines-only way, with no admission of guilt and no jail time). And the exact same thing happens with undocumented labor.

    And on top of that is the rollback of hard-won worker protections: states rolling back child labor laws, states saying kids don’t need meal breaks, states saying people working outdoors in extreme heat don’t need water breaks, etc etc etc etc.

    Of course, if you ask the owner, or the CEO, or other people who are benefiting from this system, they’ll tell you all about how “they built it with their own hands, from the ground up, with no help from anyone else” …

      Capotalism, the best system in the world!

      (So long as businesses are propped up with an endless supply of taxpayer funds, political power, and unpaid labor)

      People were so mad when Obama said “you didn’t build that.” The more mad they were about it, the more stupid you knew they were, and the more you knew they had no sense of community and didn’t care about others.

    Many Corporations seem to all be desperately clawing at whatever they can to reach new profit highs but it is backfiring and is getting CEOs fired when the consequences of their actions catch up. Just ask the ex Unity game engine CEO how it went when they pushed too hard. People, society has a tipping point that you do not want to cross as it threatens everything including their profits.
