Corporations didn't start in America. The West Indies Trading Company was engaging in shock doctrine tactics-- undercutting local workers and industries-- over 200 years ago.
But the USA has created the most destructive, horrific, human life and planet threatening monsters ever. These are very similar to the soulless monsters that are portrayed in the TERMINATOR movie series-- inhuman THINGS that see humans as inconveniences to be gotten out of the way.
Corporations have become monsters for a number of reasons, but the biggest one is that the Supreme court, through the actions of a corrupt former railroad CEO (Railroad company heads were the Banksters of the late 19th century US) that led to corporations being given the rights of corporate personhood.
Thom Hartmann wrote the definitive book on this, Unequal Protection: The Rise of Corporate Dominance.
While he was working on the book, Thom sent me a draft, for feedback. That's when it hit me. For over 100 years, science fiction writers have predicted a time when humans and the earth would be attacked by monsters, by aliens, by "Terminators" which attempt to wipe out humans and terraform the earth for their alien needs. Corporations exercising their corporate personhood rights are those monsters.
Save Humanity Kill Corporate Personhood
The way to save the planet and rescue humanity from what could really be extinction we need to kill corporate personhood-- erase it from the books, cancel the crooked supreme court "decision" that Thom Hartmann has documented was dishonestly written into the books.
