all the successful corps were sociopathic. They have no interest in benefiting the community, nor their workers, except insofar as it benefits their bottom line.

That may be true in many modern corporations but it has not always been so.

There definitely are corporations that bought up failing businesses during the Great Depression and kept them running to provide jobs in their area.

I have met executives who feel a responsibility for their employees and the need to keep plants running so their workers can feed their families.

Dog eat dog may be the theme of many out there but I think we have plenty who take a more generous approach to life and being successful.
