Corporations Are Essentially Amoral

Bain Capital, which was founded by that really wealthy clown who is running for president, is involved in helping to make China even more of an authoritarian police state than it already is.
In December, a Bain-run fund in which a Romney family blind trust has holdings purchased the video surveillance division of a Chinese company that claims to be the largest supplier to the government’s Safe Cities program, a highly advanced monitoring system that allows the authorities to watch over university campuses, hospitals, mosques and movie theaters from centralized command posts.
I know that the Vladimir Lenin quote that "Capitalists will sell us the rope that we use to hang them" was likely apocryphal. But it is true nonetheless. American companies have been doing a good business for decades in selling the tools of repression to dictatorial regimes.

If corporations were truly people, most of them would be diagnosed as being sociopaths and they'd be in locked wards.

No, I think corporations are immoral; there's intent behind everything they do.
