First, I don’t really support the boycott of Chick-fil-A. It is a waste of time and the direction is misfocused.
However, to support them is another matter.
Or maybe they are the different sides of the same coin.
Corporations are not people. They do not have freedom of speech. They cannot discriminate. They cannot hate. They cannot be anti-gay. They cannot be pro-fay. They cannot be… well, you get what I mean, right.
Corporations are paper-only entities that have no life blood, no brains, no mouth, no heart. They have one purpose – to make money not for themselves, but for those who own them. That’s right, corporations do not even “care” about themselves. If you give money to a corporation, you are giving money to the people who own it. If you don’t give money, you are hurting those who work there. The corporations don’t exist except as an abstract – and an abstract that not even Plato could justify.
Because they can’t care.
So to support Chick-fil-A’s “freedom of speech” is to buy into the notion that “corporations are people, my friend.”
Don’t do it. Don’t be that person.
