Here's another question,

How come it is ok for us to live under a Big Business dictatorship, but not ok for other countries to live under cruel merciless dictators like that North Korean guy - whathisname?

In the US people get upset when they read of the North Korean brutal dictator mauling family members with doberman pinschers and nerve agents, and shake their heads when they see this fella's face plastered on walls and billboards. But in the US, a large business can legally torture a citizen for ~30 years and their CEOs will be celebrated on the front cover of Fortune Magazine.
