It may be valid, as in true, but is it enough to allow them off the
hook? I thought ignorance wasn't a defence here. If corporations want
the privilege of 'personhood', they can't claim ignorance. It's their
responsibility to not break laws. I don't think 'intent' comes into
this, do you? It's going to be an interesting one to watch.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
