In previous posts I have suggested (and written explicitly) that corporations are anti-human. That’s not to say that corporate entities never act in ways that appear on the surface to be in humanity’s best interest. Corporations, as parasites, have a stake in the short-term wellbeing of their hosts. It is my understanding that many spiders don’t kill their prey outright. Instead they paralyze them, immobilize them and keep them alive so that they can siphon off their fresh body fluids at their leisure.
