When we were thinking of examples of a pair of things that we normally don’t necessarily associate with each other that we could apply cultural logic to, as defined as
-a broad pattern, set of practices, or set of rules that crosses many levels of a culture
I thought of the comparison of the two things (in this case in order to make a statement about society and the corporation) in the book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, and its corresponding film The Corporation. Essentially the authors take the practices and characteristics of a psychopath as defined by some standard, accredited source (I cannot remember if it was an international/American medical or psychology foundation or something like that) and applies that checklist (set of rules, patterns, and practices) to a corporation, coming to the conclusion that a corporation is by definition of its practices and views logically the same as a psychopathic person. Below is the trailer for the film:
I think the interesting notion is that a corporation, though comprised of a group of people, is like a person, an accountable entity unto itself, in the legal system, but does that imply then that a corporation itself has a morality and responsibility? That in removing one individual from the legal accountability of the corporation gives fodder in supporting the argument that one can then remove (individual) morality, responsibility, and accountability? That is, can “good” people be leaders of “evil” corporations?
