    Strictly their option but if they choose to so it could generate public good will and possible sales.

    They should reduce their profits, pay farmers a fair wage and make products cheaper for the rest of us. Of course, that's not going to happen, so we should go back to using small businesses and markets rather than supermarkets...

    no one should be MADE to give their profits away. most corporations have charities in place voluntarily.

    Should they and other corps be encouraged to do so, yes. Should they be forced to do so, no.

    It depends on what you mean by "should."

    If you mean that there's an unwritten ethical or moral responsibility there, then yes, they should. As we all should.

    But if you mean that it should be required of them by the government, no way. The government has no right to tell you what to do with your money after it shakes you down for taxes.

    First one. Not a governing compulsory law. Just, 'shoud' meaning, it being the correct, morale obligation.

    I think yes, but it depends on them, you can't force them to do so.

    If they feel like it cool. These corporations are generally very approachable w/ ideas pertaining to community support. Arm twisting and force are naughty and generally amount to extortion.

    Indeed. Most large corporations do get involved in charity and community outreach. For one, its a great way to establish a PR presence. For two, it has tax incentives in many cases.

    yep. I know it's cliche, but, it really is win-win. I totally agree w/ you.

    Only If they choose to, as nobody should be forced to give charity. Large companies like that already pay more taxes than the GDP of some developing nations.

    Yes
    Hi. How are you? :D
    I think it would help, and they wouldn't have to fork over their all of their cash.
