Multinational corporations have been around for hundreds of years,
proving what evil they can do. Early Amerinans knew about them and
the Boston Tea Party was after all a protest against a corporation.
Requalifying corporations as more efficient or more responsive to
investors completely ignores the hundreds of years of history
and the horrible track record of corporations.

If you want to talk like a sales brochure, feel free, but you're
only fooling yourself.

Business people are all taught the same caustic principles
of exploitation, regardless of where they end up working. If you
want to believe the propaganda that this or that company is
more ethical than another, in virtually all cases there is evidence
to disprove the fantasy of corporate responsibility.

And the fact that they've set up the FSF to get gullible
kids and programmers to write software often for no money
is from their point of view an enormous gain against workers.
