Evidence corporations are the new government. No doubt others could add one or two other items to this list.

Corporations operate at the local and global level thereby heavily influencing national and global policy.

Corporations control energy thereby controlling its availability and use.

Corporations control the development and use of technology, thereby heavily influencing what technology is in use, how the economy is structured and how it operates.

Corporations control the generation of finance, thereby exerting extensive control over its availability and application.

Corporations control the media thereby exercising extensive control over what the masses see, hear, read and therefore what they know and thereby what they think.

Corporations control the production, availability and quality of food and water thereby exerting extensive control over the heath of whole populations of people.

Corporations control health care and medicine thereby exercising extensive control over the health or otherwise of entire nations and regions.

Corporations control smart meter technology thereby heavily control the behavior of households in ways the corporations desire. Smart meters enable corporations to punish individual households without impacting neighbours or the whole street.

Corporations are self interested therefore they hold self-centered objectives.

Corporations are unelected and therefore wield unelected self interested power.

Corporate power determines national and international policy thereby rendering national governments to mere implementers of corporate defined policy.

Corporate power has relegated government power to 2IC status

You cannot clump all corporations together like this. There are lots of good corporations out there, not all are out to take over the world.

Old news alert. Governments are owned... and not by us. But that is merely capitalism acting naturally.

"Corporations are the new government"

This is not news to most really.

Indeed.
I work for a corporation which has 20 employees. We are not out to rule anything. Not much influence over anything. Just trying to make a living.

Also, they can be large and clumsy, and they fail sometimes.

There's your silver lining.

Back in 2011, researchers studied the links between thousands of corporations. They ended up with a bow-tied shaped network with 147 corporations that controlled everything:

The banking houses and a select few individuals profited immensely from world war two.

Corporations just do there bidding by default.

Bravo!

Yes, corporations are the government. Washington is a Gangsta's Paradise, and we have reached a new level in the sophistication of fascism.

No it isn't. Free trade is based upon mutually agreed exchanges of goods and services. The corporate structure evades liability, changes laws to favor them and tilts the table to their benefit.

Bottom line is we either outlaw corporations or we will be ruled by them forever.
They are artificial constructs that empowers a small group at the expense of everyone else.
Their useful life is over, they are no longer net contributors to society.

Corporations control energy thereby controlling its availability and use.

Corporations spend money to mine resources and generate energy, buy some solar panels and wind turbines if you want to generate your own energy, or buy a generator and manufacturer your own fuel. We have corporations so all these complicated things can be simplified and made easier. The alternative is that the government owns all natural resources and that is what true totalitarianism looks like.


Corporations control the development and use of technology, thereby heavily influencing what technology is in use, how the economy is structured and how it operates.

Uh... any can form a company and create stuff, you don't even really need a company, independent researchers constantly make new discoveries. Corporations provide a lot of innovation because they have an incentive to beat their competitors, it's that competition which allows the free market to be such a strong mechanism for technological development. Again, would you rather the government create all our technology for us? You don't mind waiting a century for anything to get done do you?


Corporations control the generation of finance, thereby exerting extensive control over its availability and application.

What does this even mean... the fed and banks control money. Corporations produce a profit and use it to pay employees, who then go onto spend it and keep it circulating, maintaining healthy levels of liquidity.


Corporations control the media thereby exercising extensive control over what the masses see, hear, read and therefore what they know and thereby what they think.

This is probably the best point so far but people have many options besides MSM sources, there is a vast number of small news corporations and independent reporters who aren't forced to put a slant on every story or withhold relevant facts. You seem to forget a corporation consists of human beings...


Corporations control the production, availability and quality of food and water thereby exerting extensive control over the heath of whole populations of people.

Buy from an organic food corporation, don't buy cheap crap food there are many corporations offering differing levels of quality, or better yet grow your own food. No one controls your health but yourself, once again, would you rather the government prepare and disperse all food rations?

Well, I started a corporation a few years ago, and we are small, with only 3 partners. We have no significant amount of money yet, and don't seek to rule the world, just to start up a nursery business.

so ... I guess I volunteer our corporation as an example of a good corporation, however small!

No,

Hitler was going to kill off the bankers as he already had in Germany. He had no allegiance to outside banking influence. He was a hardcore Nationalist, interested in one thing, and one thing only. German world domination. If you think that because a few banking houses had a vested interest in their survival, that goes for any subsect group in the populace. Would you not align as well with someone for survival?

The fact is that if corporations, like that of Rolls Royce, GE, Boeing, etc, did not contribute their minds and efforts to the war, your post would likely be in Russian or German depending on how things played out. Go look at what corporations worked for the Germans, they are still around today. Who do you think built the Zero for Japan...The Banks? lol...Mitsubishi. Who do you think figured out Radar? Eleanor De Rothschild? You think they wanted U Boats blowing people to hell traveling in the Atlantic? Like seeing their relatives sink in the cold was something they enjoyed?
