> where corporate interests never trump personal liberties

Corporations are a construct of government. So yes, if we limit the power of government, corporate power will be limited too.

I guess what he meant is that in a libertarian society corporations would not be able to lobby the government for special (monopoly) rights and privileges - because there would be no government to lobby. Corporations would have to rely solely on consumers to generate profits by providing services consumers want. And if they fail to do so, they'd go out of business and no one's gonna bail them out.
