Nothing is 100% Good or Bad

There are good businesses and good governments as well as bad.

Corporations CAN do some good but their main goal is to maximize profits for the shareholders.

Profits are fine but the corporations are literally psychopathic organizations because there goal is to take in the most money possible at all cost, sometimes with no regard to the law.

And some have gotten so large and powerful that if they don't like a law they can send in their lobbyist and rewrite the law.

Some corporations have more power these days than most countries on earth, including the USA.

I'd prefer a strong government that defends it's people while being accountable to them instead of strong corporations that are only accountable to their board members.

I don't know all of the ins and outs of why our founders didn't like corporations, but I agree with how they were treated prior to 1819.

I also believe that people should be able to freely associate but there does need to be some government involvement to prevent monopolies and other things that hurt it's citizens.
