Are corporations the new autocracy?Written by louise on September 19th, 2008
It got me to thinking. So you’re supposed to subscribe to the corporate spirit, wear tops with corporate logos on to corporate events, conform to corporate expectations and rituals. Does this sound familiar? Ok, so this is in no way as extreme as the movement created in the film or the classroom, but some aspects of the experiment were uncomfortably familiar. What do employees of corporations get out of the deal? They get paid, they get a sense of community, maybe a sense of pride - but this can all disappear at a moments notice.
When did corporation become a word that makes you feel vaguely uneasy? In the way when you can’t quite put your finger on something, but your gut tells you it’s not right.
