Hello. Watching an American TV show I've seen this sentence. A woman is talking about a corrupt organization, known as the Company. Then she says: "It's a body that bends to the will of its head. And right now, it is bloodthirsty and war-hungry." I think that 'body' here could mean: 'A group of individuals regarded as an entity; a corporation,' (from The American Heritage® Dictionary). And the 'head' being the chief or director of it. Not just talking metaphorically about a human body, I think. What do you think? Thanks in advance!
