Skeptic BS: MORE credit for Bush (105* d) RE: BS: MORE credit for Bush 25 Apr 01

It's getting out of hand when we start parsing the parsings. One topic would be nice.

I still would like to hear a reconcilliation of the conservative (and libertarian) view of personal responsibility with the idea of the corporation as a legal "entity", enjoying the rights and protections granted to citizens under the constitution. Such would seem to unduly shield corporations from social and moral responsibility.

On the one hand, it does allow the corporation to enter into contracts and commit corporate resources (versus the individuals as in a partnership). There are less encompassing ways around that problem.

On the other, it shields (partially or completely) the very real people who make the decisions from any real consequences for their actions and would seem to allow the ethics of "business as business" to dominate.

There. A more or less single topic, more or less on topic. I must be getting old.
