Another generalization i'd say you could refine. Not all are bad for society and not all are as harmful as others.

"Corps were once beneficial to society, now they suck the life out of the US and the
world....With no social conscience any more, only the worst of us would defend them...
"

There are many bad people yet you would never say all people are bad. It's an aspect of thinking you could check.

Do corporations do more harm to society than good?

[...]

Monopolies yes...Corporations no.

I think part of the culture that is anti-corporation is centered around the giant ones. Those ideally if they are that large become monopolies, unfortunately the powers that be tend to not prosecute or otherwise put the watch dogs into place to prevent this. Corporates in general are not bad and do far more good then bad when you take into account that the reason for a corporation is to separate oneself legally from their business, most corporations are incorporated small businesses and small business is always good for a community. Its when a giant starts to stamp those out that we have issues, buy something from a local store if you have issue with the big guys. Personally I end up doing both, for quality vegetables I go to the local grocer and they are usually competitive price. For other items like coffee I tend to go to larger stores because I am froogle. Corporations exist so say someone who had a great idea wants to start a business around, legally separates himself from the business and then can sale stakes in the profits to be made so he create prototypes or buy supplies etc. So the vast majority of corporations are not evil, it is the large ones that technically are not legal as they are for all practical purposes are the issue. Go after the Apples and Walmarts if you want but leave the other smaller corporations out of it.

It was Plato who said, “He, O men, is the wisest, who like Socrates, knows that his wisdom is in truth worth nothing”
