I don’t think anyone ‘expects’ corporations to act democratically, he’s just pointing out that they are authoritarian. I’d also disagree that Mom and Pop shops are ‘just as’ authoritarian as corporations, although any boss can be tyrannical. Small businesses wield much less power over the legal and judicial system than large corporations. I’d submit one’s labor is also a bit less ‘alienated’ working as a clerk in the local mart than on an assembly line in a factory.
