So, if businesses and corporations are considered to be people, doesn't buying and owning another company constitute slave labor? :P

What I mean is that the company itself, being a person, is a slave, because if a person is owned by another person, that makes them a slave. The individual employees in such businesses are not slaves, as they are free to go. I guess depending on the contract the companies are free to leave by their own will, and they also voluntarily can be bought, and don't have to be bought if they don't want to, that doesn't necessarily make them slaves either.

But, given just the terminology of the word "ownership" being used, doesn't that in and of itself make it slavery, or at least open slavery, even if it isn't really slavery at all in function?

It should but it doesn't.

If corporation are people, can't they be punished to the same extent as a regular citizen? No, becasue it's an intangible entity that encompasses the rights of humans, but not punishable by the same standards.

No, they're selling themselves, and that makes them prostitutes.

I never wrote that quoted material and I most certainly did not ninja edit it out after realizing that it was incredibly arrogant and annoying to point out such minor grammatical fallacies. I can assure you of this.

Does this make politicians kinda like middlemen or some other role in the sex trade? They're obviously not the pimps, those are big business.

You know, I had a long elaborate response to this wherein I mocked you for oversimplifying things, but then I decided that this thread was dumb enough that I stopped halfway through the effort.

Congrats on making me a quitter, I guess.

They're the cops who are being paid to look the other way.

I wouldn't exactly describe him as being on my shitlist. He's only done one thing on this forum that made me annoyed, and since his losering, he's back at the level he was before, which is amusing. Thus, I open and read most of his threads.

This one just happens to be particularly dumb.
