Another reason why I like Elizabeth Moon.

"Understand that corporations do not have a conscience, do not have
morals, do not have ethics. They are fictional constructs designed to
remove responsibility from individuals--does that sound like something
you can trust to have the best interests of employees, the community,
natural resources, or the country in mind? No, of course not.
Corporations are a valuable concept, but it's a mistake to confuse them with a real person who has a real ethical stance. Corporations must be subject to laws which they will find onerous if they are not to end up
destroying the welfare of the community as a whole."
