A quick run-down of famous evil corporations from movies and TV: Weyland-Yutani: “We want to capture and breed this incredibly dangerous alien species and use them as weapons, and literally every single person involved in this project is considered expendable.” Tyrell Corporation: “We’ve created a robotic slave-race that may or may not have sentience of their own, but have also made them so short-lived that it’s impossible for them to ever truly know anything other than an existence of servitude and objectification.”
Umbrella Corporation: “We’re going to destroy the world with zombies and other biological horrors because, ummmm, profits!”
LexCorp: “We’ve become so ubiquitous in every aspect of modern technology, from defense to AI to simple home appliances, that everyone is willing to turn a blind eye to the fact that we’re run by a megalomaniac.”
Cyberdine Systems: “Even though we have irrefutable evidence from the future that our meddling in artificial intelligence will one day doom humanity to a nuclear holocaust, our hubris and curiosity compel us to push towards our destructive end.”
InGen: “We are really.....really bad at making theme parks, you guys.”
You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?
