Wait, I’m confused. I thought we lived in a free-market democracy in which corporations are “people” with sacrosanct “opinions” (which, for some reason, usually come in the form of gobs and gobs of campaign cash).
But if a corporation—for once—stands up for voting rights instead of endorsing a coal lobbyist as head of the EPA, now you’re talking Italy circa 1943.
And if insurance companies use their clout (i.e., money and influence) with members of Congress to prevent meaningful action on universal health care—you know, the system everyone else in the developed world has—again, that’s as God intended. But if they want to promote inclusive hiring or, I don’t know, oppose Jim Crow 2.0, suddenly it’s an undemocratic overreach.
