So what term would you recommend to disentangle Google from Doctors Without Borders?

I don't know - large multi-national for-profit businesses?

I know that's not very satisfying, but it's really only a narrow slice of 'corporations' - even business corporations - that are 'sociopathic in the quest for profits.' There's only a few thousand publicly-traded corporations, but there's literally millions and millions of corporate businesses out there. Most of them aren't sociopathic. They're just the corporate form of your local dry cleaner, neighborhood Italian restaurant, or dental office. Many of them are just pass-throughs - my psychologist wife and all of her psychologist friends/colleagues all do their practices under a corporate entity. And that's to say nothing of the millions and millions of special purpose entities - corporations that exist only to do a single thing, like own a single parcel of land for development purposes or hold the lease to a piece of capital equipment.
