      We do after all have a conscience.

      Corporate conscience? No such thing.

      But at the top of these are people, with consciences, who will
      at one point or another, only give so much of their soul to
      the holy dollar, before they will break themselves into a quivering
      mass through guilt. Perhaps to make room for the next, but
      through the watchful eye of organizations such as Green Peace,
      World Vision, World Wildlife Fund, etc, the general public
      maintains a measure of power over them, capable of rendering
      that mighty blow, that coupe de grace, the boycott.
