Life And Life Only

Episode 33- The Corporation

September 14, 2022

In an edited version of what was originally a video podcast (link below), Antony and Luke Thompson dissect the seminal Canadian documentary written by law professor Joel Bakan and directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott.

Although often run by people with decent intentions, the modern corporation, complete with its legally-determined 'rights of a person', has become a monster that seeks to devour all that stands in its own way while polluting the environment and often ruining lives. You may be shocked to hear the documentary's diagnosis of this legal monster, which we outline during the talk.

Some of the talking heads (including critics of the entity, corporation CEOs and everything in between) include Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore and Naomi Klein.
