1.Federal Reserve
2.D.O.D.
3.Health and human services
4.Department of energy
The list goes on and on. It would not surprise me if all these powerful agencies have some type of central operating system in common.

The real issue is the lack of organization of concerned citizens. Unorganized citizens cannot compete with the titans of industry that control our politics and economy. They have unlimited capital to influence our elected officials and governmental bureaucracy. Why are citizens so ineffective at organizing like the corporations? I believe it comes down to a distortion of the importance of short term and long term benefits. People take action to increase the wellbeing of their existence. Most people only see importance of the short term benefits, and do not have the foresight to see change 20-30 years down the road. Why is this? I think there has been a kind of mass brainwashing that encourages short term gratifications instead of long term accomplishment and permanent positive growth. Also, because of the economy, many people do not have the energy or sustenance to fight any other battle than that of getting shelter, and food on the table for their families.

It’s easier for corporations to work in harmony because they all have intentions of profiting. It is a more complex fight for the people. Not only do we have to profit financially, but we have to fight for our rights to live freely. That is why we have to try to educate the uneducated. And by that, I mean the ‘asleep’, the people who we need to wake up to this grim reality so that we may have a better chance of influencing our nation in a way that benefits us all.

Great thread.

This is why I always laugh at people like Rob Reiner. He takes on the tobbacco lobby and strikes a victory and millions of people applaud. As if something groundbreaking has just taken place. If Reiner really wanted to strike a blow to TPTB and make an actual difference, he would try to take on big oil or Pharma or the Military Ind Complex. It is those things, and those things alone, which shape our government and the world in which we live.

Recognised the name. He appears in this documentary, which is related to the subject matter of the op.

Park Avenue - Money, Power and the American Dream


Through archive and interviews with academics, political scientists, psychologists, former lobbyists and even a former doorman at 740 Park, Gibney's film is a polemical look at the socio-economic political landscape of contemporary USA.

Indeed it is. Thanks for that.

ATS'ers who want to put a name and face to the "Special Interests" ruining America are advised to watch that video.

There is one big business that runs everything, the bankers.

The bankers control the oil industry, the insurance industry, the military industrial complex, big ag, big pharma, the media, everything.

The plan to destroy the US government, shrink it down until it can be drowned in the bath water, has only resulted in a bank take over of the US government, which has not shrunk at all, but in fact gotten far bigger than ever.

People don't care about the facts, far too many are brainwashed by right wing talk radio.

When will Americans demand that their greedy politicians listen to Academics like this one? It's clear to anybody who pays attention that educated people, the truly educated, are screaming at the top of their lungs that this is not sustainable, and that the average person is being screwed.

~Tenth


So what is "truly educated", educated by the state? A university? Has a BS degree, I know plenty of people with one of those, they usually validate their points by screaming at the top of their lungs that only non-educated people would oppose them.. They must be insane!!! OFF TO THE GULAGS WITH THE INSANSE!!!

Every Government is a gang... EVERY GOVERNMENT ON EARTH is a gang.. The corporations will align themselves with the biggest one when ever possible be it American or Chinese... The bias of this OP only shows not what corporations run the government but which government runs the biggest corporations..

Yours Truly~ Gangdum

Wrong, the banks run the governments, all of them.

The banks control the money supply, and the governments now due the bidding of the banks.

You are the one who has bought into the propaganda.

IE- Gulf+Western who also owned ABC/Paramount.
(Oil/Power/Media - Production & Distribution & Desemination)

The People who dared to question the status quo were labeled Hippies/Freaks/Commies & Disillusional Drug Addicted Flower Children.

Hence the 'War on Drugs'.



The conglomerates as you might know them... I'll take free market business conglomerates over say old world government conglomerates.... Is it perfect? It is better then Kings, Queens, hitler, Mao, and Stalin... Non-paid Slavery.

OLD WORLD, A women WAS slave to a man, (be it black white yellow or brown) and in today's society should a man be slave to the women.. Is either perfect?

Sorry no, not really seeing it, could you show some sources to make your argument.
Not totally disagreeing with you because the Governments are part of the problem.
But you must realize the Governments are baught and paid for if not by international banks then by international corporations.
For my sources I'll refer you to one of my threads here:

Straight from the headlines.

online.wsj.com...


The so-called Basel III accord, known for the Swiss city in which it has historically been negotiated, required banks to greatly thicken their capital cushions and come up with trillions of dollars of liquidity. The banking industry argued that the changes were overkill and would prompt them to dramatically reduce lending. Regulators ultimately accepted some of those arguments, and agreed to delay or ease key elements of the rules.

Meanwhile, questions are mounting in some countries, including the U.S., over whether the package will be implemented at all. It is up to individual countries to decide how to apply the rules to their financial institutions.


In other words, dare to regulate us and we will crash your economies. If we, the bankers fail, governments must bail us out, or we will crash your economies.

So, you vote in one Senator or Congress person (maybe even 2 or 3) with insight or reason the try to change the system and they are " re-educated" to conform or they are blacklisted and outed. Not much of chance to change unless the entire system is brought down and restarted.

So you agree? The conglomerates and banks would never get away with what it does if not for government?

Because a just government says let them fail!!!! LET THEM FAIL!!!

That is the easiest way out, but there are risks. Every revolution has been ultimately managed by groups of interests. What one gets in the end may not be what one intended to. I believe that the path of exposing and educating people is more secure and has a long lasting outcome.

Sachs says the main thing to remember about the corporatocracy is that it looks after its own.


More people need to call it exactly what it is. "Corporatocracy" is a new 50 cent word for facism.
