It's not just the corporate take over of our country - it is the corporate take over of the whole world. If it were just our country we could handle
it through the normal political give and take. But through the web of foreign entanglements called trade agreements, we are saddled with assured
serfdom. The global web of trade agreements places corporations out of the reach of each country's people because they can just punish you and run
jobs out of your country to a different country if you dare to push back on them.
Then there is the social/cultural cleansing game they have played with every nation to accomodate economic globalism - multiculturalism. To be a
people united in a vision, you have to share a basic ideology, history and social norms. It all adds up to a common soical idenity. In the US the
ideology used to be constitutional freedom and the common culture that grew out of that was mutual protection of one another's freedoms - in time
beyond race and sex inequality. We had a general social agreement on what is right and what is wrong in life but everything was tempered by our love
and understanding of freedom. The history we shared was the history of freedom's fathers and mothers and the philosphy that it came from. We called
this culture the "melting pot" and every American inherited this idenity plus our own unique family and ethic backgrounds.
That common National idenity and vision all gone now - along with the National borders, the National interest and vision, and the notion of of
citizenship has even been attacked by illegal immigration. We have lost all power as a result and corporation have gained all power.
