I will opt out. I will not buy the mandated insurance. I will not pay the fine. I will not.

I am not talking about myself, but the people who are enslaved by this corporate system. I do actually own an iphone but I am talking about the big picture of dictation about how we are really controlled. For instance the Obama law forcing people to buy insurance was done at the behest of insurance companies. What if we want to opt out?
"If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; may your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

But seriously it wasn't any better in the 1960's or 1860's or 1560's.
Someone has always owned more than you do.
Actually corporate power has never been as consolidated as it is today. Not to mention with advances in technology it has made their reach much more apparent.
It's no different in the animal world. The strongest lion pack has the greatest range with the best impala herd.
Are we comparing ourselves to animals that do not have the ability to reason, use logic or have the capacity of human emotion and compassion? Nor do they have access to the type of communication and technology that we enjoy. This is exactly the type of mentality that makes the #ty world we live in possible. The dog eat dog/survival of the fittest mentality does nothing for the human race. The mind of a corporation is not human, nor is it animal, it is an entity on it's own. One that is destructive, exploitive and psychotic
Maybe you could become a honey bee. But no their lives are just as controlled.
Sounds like that's the perfect world for you being that you enjoy either controlling or being controlled (depending on your net worth).
I guess your are SOL! Deal with it. That's what the rest of us do.
More hive mentality. Deal with it, nothing will change its been that way for 2000 years, you are unworthy, pay tribute to the corporate gods.
Tonight I'll have a meal from a corprate controlled store. Then I'll watch my corprate built tv with a show produced by a big media company.
Then if I'm lucky I'll have sex in a position of my own choosing.
Life's good. What more could I want?
If you are happy then why are you posting on this thread?
Wow now I know you are trolling....
