@imani makes a powerful analogy: Corporations behave (are *constructed deliberately* to behave) as callous, self-maximising, humanity-indifferent artificial intelligence.
“Corporations run on a form of code – financial regulation and accounting practices – and the modern version of this code literally prohibits corporations from treating human beings with empathy.”
As Imani points out, we as a society choose what code those corporations run.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
