Personal freedom and corporate freedom are frequently obfuscated by the right and the left. In this podcast, I delineate what constitutes personal freedom and corporate freedom.
I assert that some form of personal freedom, especially the freedom of thought, is inalienable to the individual. Other forms of personal freedoms may be controlled, but rarely to good ends.
I also observe that corporate freedom has run wild in the last 3-4 decades. Ironically, it has led to the dissipation of corporate freedom for SMEs, with all the rights and benefits sucked up by the large corporations who control the social-political system, essentially forming an oligopoly.
Normatively, I suggest that personal freedom should be above corporate freedom, but that the latter is also valuable.
A conclusion is that unrestrained capitalism is inconducive to lasting freedom to either the individual or SMEs.
