      "isn't that what I was saying?"

      But I guess it wasn't precisely.  I'm saying that a corporation is incapable of caring about human cost, but it will act as if it does care if its reputation is significant to its success.  And that's all the victory you can expect.

      (corporations aren't people.  They're logical constructs designed to do nothing other than generate money for the people who "invested" in them.  By definition they don't care about anything except return on investment)

        Without regulation and limits, corporations go feral and destroy everything in sight.  It's how they're designed.
