[My response from the SvN post]
You know, everyone wants corporations to be more like people — more responsible, more honest, more respectful of the environment, etc. Yet we’re not as quick to treat corporations like people.
You’re confusing motivations here. We don’t want corporations to be more like people. We want people to be themselves, and stop hiding behind corporations.
The corporations themselves are not people, and when we treat them as if they’re the same as people, we get the disconnect of “brand identity”, corporation with protected free speech, and other madness.
