This is why I'm against limited liability and corporate person-hood. The people who made these decisions should not hide behind the virtual psychopath that limit their responsibility and their monetized laws.

Good. Fuck Nestlé. There seems to be absolutely no sense of morality or common decency at these sorts of mega-corporations. Shit like this always makes me remember the government ruling that says corporations are people. I picture it like it's just one massive evil creature torturing the poor and exploitable.. Like something out of a DnD campaign or fantasy film.

It's insane to think that there are probably numerous higher-ups in that company that knew exactly what was going on, that knew the exact extent of the corrupt tactics they used and are undoubtedly still using. It's really pretty terrifying.

EDIT: remember not remembering

Corporate personhood is an evil that drags down America

I feel like this is because it's inherent in human nature to become corrupt given absolute power. A kinda Hobbesian way to look at things, but whatever.

If a human being, much less a collective of sociopaths, is to be given a massive chunk of the worlds wealth, a complete lack of accountability for their actions, and the ability to shape the world how the please, they will become absolutely corrupt. Guaranteed. We as a species are still far too primal to be in any sort of position like that.

I've always pictured corporations as babies or invalids. You have some people controlling their wealth, and able to enter contracts for them, but they're unable to do anything on their own.

The laughable thing is when the caregivers get caught doing something illegal or immoral, they point to the baby and say "It was him", and we punish it instead.

Granted, corporations shouldn't get to profit off of immoral acts of its agents, but those agents should also be held legally responsible too.

Nestlé just has a string of rights violations to it's name doesn't it. I had no idea they were in the Pet food market too. Do they only employ sociopaths to conduct these worker deals?

To be fair, it's probably hard to find anything but sociopaths that high on the corporate latter.

I'm so glad some one took the time to post that. Our cat does not eat sea food based cat food so can continue to enjoy his kibble with the assurance it's from free range labor and not tainted.

My cat, Ayn, tried the non slave pet food but she's not keen. She is cursed with a refined palate, like me.
