Are you scared of corporations and banks? I used to be until I began to see the bigger picture.

Microsoft, Apple, UBER, Ebay, Amazon, Facebook, Google are growing hugely every day. The evolution of banks from the streets of the ghetto to the global institutions and evolutionary structures they are today have evolved us "bigly" culturally, socially and globally.

These big guys are the future. They are putting in place GLOBAL STRUCTURES. These global structures are able to create opportunities where governments could not. Yes, governments must keep them in order and be brokers between the corporations and the people.

We have no idea about what the future may hold in terms of market evolution. These global structures are just the beginning. It is all the pangs of a world coming together.

Despite MSM moaning China has been very good with the U.S about North Korea. Real progress is being made. If these two are locked into each other economically then we are already global to all intents and purposes, except for contrary Mr Putin. Mr Putin is too proud for his own good and the good of his people. Open up your doors Russia. Come invest and let the rest of the world invest in you.

Open the floodgates, the damn is bursting!

Corporations are the backbone certainly of all the West, China and India. Our interests now are all mutual. This must not be tampered with. The kind of war we would have now if the superpowers lose the plot with each other would be one only a few forlorn cavemen might even survive.

It's never over until it's over. In my life time I have seen great progress. Yes, progress. The days of my childhood and youth look barbaric to me now.

THANK YOU, Boss, whoever you are and wherever you are. You are at least trying to do the right thing.

Onwards with the boxing match we all know as democracy:

I will never see corporations as the hero of any story. They have profited from lying, stealing, pillaging, heavy handed tactics and even murder to get their way. None of them do good, just to do good. If it didn't improve their profit in some way, they wouldn't do it.

The "corporations are evil" line is so 2000s, get with the current times grandpa.

Whether you love or despise them, corporations are an integral part of a modern society.

So integral it appears their control of information for normal people to be able to understand what the truths are is almost complete. Just one switch away from shutting down the internet. I suspect that we all know they would gladly take the control to decide who sees what information.

"Grandpa"...right. "So 2000s"? Didn't know that kissing corporate ass was the "IN" thing to do. Glad I'm behind the times if that's the case.
You may want put your hero worship on hold and look into how these giant money making machines became so integral. It was not to be do gooders.

New faces same game. Exploit the poor and working class for profit. Create root causes of division and sow seeds of necessity of materialism.

I would just like to add. Take a look at China online. I mean a site like alibaba.com see how well China is organized digitally. Alibaba boasts "Global trade starts here". The U.S needs to stop squabbling so internally and get organized at least with the foreign trade and affairs, lol.

Britain is going to be struggling on its own I know it. It has gone the wrong way down a one way street. It represents a failure and a withdrawal from the market place. Can it re-write the rules? I don't think so. It is not the player it used to be.

May be they have plans that it will be some kind of refuge, a necessary retreat for very good reason? We shall have to see.

I love global everything really. My mind has never been able to think just locally or just about my own race and own self interests. World politics and current affairs are fascinating. I am very fascinated with the U.S politics; very dynamic and healthy. You're all up for a good old scrapping with the issues.

You don't need to be a "corporate ass-kisser" to know that especially in a capitalist economy corporations are significant.

I don't worship corporations, I'm not even pro-corporations but I still understand their importance in terms of economics.

"Giant money making machines" hey, I think I know what's going on here. You are pissed because they make so much money and you don't own one. It's not fair executives can make so much coin and you can't. Well, that's life...

Corporations don't want to shut down the internet. Billionaire oligarchs do.

I can remember a time, when this was actually a CONSPIRACY SITE, when you would have been a laughing stock for posting this. Now, there's people who support this drivel on here? Smh..

I feel corporations have taken advantage of consumers more today than they ever had in the past! One only has to look as far as cell phone fees and contracts. Don't get me started on outrageous college tuition, the outrageous costs of pharmaceuticals, hospital and nursing home care costs, banking fees and high student loan interest rates, satellite and cable contracts and fees, the bombardment of daily courtesy calls and TV and Internet ads!

Service contracts are an easy way to keep disgruntled consumers from fleeing high rates or poor service. I wish our government can bail us out when we over spend and can't pay are bills. Instead our homes are taken away, and are bank accounts or pay checks are garnished. All this, while our representatives in congress turn their backs to corporations ripping us off! They sure don't have our back.

Everything on this god forsaken planet is owned and controlled by big corporations.

When will they step up, and declare all countries and or states obsolete and meaningless?

I am sick and tired of this game! Go big or go home!

And why i have no beer in my fridge? Been doing some heavy duty drinking, and i am not planning to stop today!!!

(SNIP)!

I got rid of all my credit cards several years ago, put enough in the bank each month to pay bills and the rest is......somewhere. I cut DISH Network out years ago and just have streaming. Verizon got the boot about 8 months ago and I have a "pay as you go" plan that only costs me $35 a month and I get the same amount of use out of it as when I was paying Verizon $120 a month. I text my kids, call my Mom and just have one so family can reach me and if it's a number I don't know, I don't answer it.
I'll be the first to admit that cell phones were a great invention, but they are quite a double edged sword. You can call for help if you break down on the road and people can call for help if they are really in trouble, but other than that, I think they're a bit of a nuisance. Not to mention the idiots who can't drive without checking their FB or Twitter. They seem to think the world might end if they didn't pay attention to their phone for a whole 5 minutes.

Funny you should mention streaming. I was just looking into that the other day. I'm still trying to figure out the channels. I just want the free channels, but I'm kind of addicted to the ID Channel and the History channel. It says those channels have fees and says I need satellite or cable to receive them. Heck, I want to tell Direct TV adios once my contract ends!

Corporations are NOT the backbone of nations.

People are.

Just had to place a reminder here.
