Corporations Do Not Emote.

Somebody please tell the headline writers at CNN and the BBC that corporations do not have feelings!

CNN: Delta unfazed by pilots union decision (screenshot)
BBC: Sony repentant over CD debacle (screenshot)

God damn, this pisses me off. Sony does not alter behavior because it feels remorse; Sony alters behavior because other behavior yields more profit. If Sony ever acted out of love or pity or kindness, its board of directors would be legally liable for not seeking to maximize shareholder value. Corporations are legally bound to suck the lifeblood out of the rest of us. What sane, non-suicidal society would ever construct such a self-destructive mechanism? God damn!
