Corporations hire private militia and ruin whole countrysides just
fine in countries where the state is corrupt/weak. 

Power is power. Whether government or company, they'll gladly
take turns in screwing you over. In a more or less decent
social system the government is supposed to watch the corporations,
and you're supposed to watch the government. The reality, unfortunately,
is that the foxes are almost always in charge of the henhouse.

Things should become better with a vigilant, wealthy and educated
populace. Things should become worse with an apatic, poor, ignorant
populace.
