Here's a neat speech for Remember Me, the dystopian game where a corporation manages to own the memories of nearly the entire population. The speech is delivered by Antoine Cartier-Wells, founder of that corporation -- and listening to him talk about memories, it's not difficult to see how easy it would be to sway public opinion on giving a corporation so much power.
Granted, it's not just his charisma. Having the ability to share and delete memories, a power which his corporation can provide via brain implant, is seductive too.
