License to Kill Cigarettes and Shards O'Glass Freeze Pops

This semester, I'm taking a course in corporate ethics, but not from a business school perspective. Issues of corporate social responsibility, governance, accountability, and transparency are so much more interesting - and a lot more fun - when done from an activist and critical ground. Naturally, the movie, The Corporation, is on the course's bill of fare (which, as long-time readers might recall, I consider a pro-corporate movie). As well, we've been pointed to the newest - and most honest - tobacco company to be incorporated, License to Kill, Inc, whose company slogan reads as "The beauty of the tobacco business is that people pay us to kill them. That's why our motto is "We're Rich. You're Dead!"" Meanwhile, I directed my colleagues to the wonderful corporate responsibility site of Shards O'Glass Freeze Pops:
At Shards O' Glass, our goal is to be the most responsible, effective and respected developer of glass shard consumer products intended for adults. Our Shards O' Glass Freeze Pops are the nation's top-selling frozen treats containing glass shards. Little wonder, considering all we put into them! Enjoy your stay here. And remember, Shards O' Glass Freeze Pops are for adults only.
