Isn't that going a bit too far?  While I agree that selfish interest and 
the rest are undesirable qualities (at least in others ;) , attributing 
those qualities to all corporates is a bit extreme.

After all, Sun and Red Hat (both large corporates) employees have played 
an invaluable role in keeping software patents away from us so far.
