What this is basically a metaphor is the question of whether or not people would still be moral if there was no fear of being caught or punished. This is related to The Corporation in that, at least in my opinion, giant corporations would not be moral or follow the rules if there was no fear of punishment because they all have their own 'corporate agendas' and, typically, are so driven to be successful and make money at any cost.When Thrasymachus claims that "justice is the advantage of the stronger" and, in conjunction

Exam Revision – Corporation Law
[4.01] Through section 124(1) of the Corporations Act 2001, upon the date of registration, a company has the full legal capacity of a natural person where the identity of the company is separate to its shareholders, directors and agents. Thus, a company can sue and be sued. Furthermore, as a company has a separate legal entity, the liability of the shareholders, directors and agents of the company is limited. The principle that a company is a separate legal person is a cornerstone of company law. This was firmly established in the landmark case of Salomon v Salomon (1897) where the House of Lords held that a company is considered to be a new legal entity

Corporation and Government Control reflected in 1984
Throughout 1984, a book by George Orwell, the dystopian setting ruled by Big Brother
reflects and warns us about the growing control of Governments and Corporations over citizens'
lives. Possessing the power to rewrite and edit history in addition to manipulating citizens
psychologically by making the party's failures appear to be huge successes as well as suppressing
sexuality and emphasizing that the end goal of making love is to create new party members is
also key to Big Brother's control. Additionally, punishing citizens for anything they do while
observing them through telescreens keeps the citizens in fear of doing anything. The

Brief SummaryFrom Intel's beginning in 1968, the company strategy was to "push the envelope of product design and to be the first to market with the newest devices." By 1973, the company had the world's best selling semiconductor product (1103 DRAM chip). From 1979 into the 1980's the industry began to change as competition became fierce and the PC market began to take hold. Intel executives later made a dramatic decision to exit the DRAM business and focus resources on the Intel invented microprocessors. In January 1997, Intel was ranked among the top five American companies. For the most part, Intel's success had been due to its microprocessors. Notwithstanding the company's remarkable
