Rogue Protocol (Murderbot Diaries, book 3) by Martha Wells

There's an odd recurring theme in these stories. Although large
corporations are inherently untrustworthy, willing to murder and
massacre if that helps the bottom line, the humans who work for the
megacorps take a surprisingly sunny view of their evil masters. Which
makes them sitting ducks when the megacorps decide that they must
be exterminated.

Perhaps this odd obliviousness is a coping mechanism; if the humans
need jobs and they need to be blind to context to keep those jobs, they
will be blind. Or perhaps it's simply that until they themselves are
targeted, the humans see the corporations as threats to other people,
not them.

The Nuremberg defense is not just for public servants.



Thank you,
