Corporate responsibility is an oxymoron, says John Perry Barlow of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

In an interview with Video4Good at Commit!Forum 2012, Barlow expressed other strong opinions. He points out that in an environment where companies are motivated by profits and self interest, the human race is in competition with corporate organisms that have a limited sense of the future.

Most companies don’t live as long as human beings so they focus on immediate returns even when they have enough, warns Barlow.
