I've seen corporations take a few hits in my time. Having worked in public and governmental affairs for Ford, GM and Fiat, I could hardly fail to be aware of the attacks made on large companies by people and organisations who fear their power and resent their behaviour — actual or suspected. I was reminded of my past thoughts and efforts in this field by a quasi-documentary called 'The Corporation' broadcast during the holiday period. Needless to say, it wasn't praising the power supposedly wielded by corporate entities around the world.
