Doing Business with Psychopaths

If you enjoyed Bowling for Columbine, you must see The Corporation. After explaining how modern corporations came to be defined as “persons” in legal terms, this documentary shows how such a person would qualify, based on their behaviour, as a psychopath.

This film is well-paced, well-researched, well-structured, and, well, confirms all the horrible things you suspected about corporations, as well as some you never would have imagined. Along the way, some ridiculous but little-publicized facts of law are exposed, such as the loophole that let Fox television off the hook in a “whistle-blower” lawsuit: it isn’t illegal for a media organization to falsify the news. That’s right. As if we needed more blatant justification for distrusting the media, knowingly lying, in a news broadcast, is perfectly legal.
