Yeah, I get that....but other people were linking corporatism with communism.....I was just trying to point out the absurdity of that.



Ok, no worries.

Thank you, and good point.



ETA: There seems to be a lot of that going around,
getting mixed in with Corporatism = Fascism.

That is coming from the Antifa folks.

Sorry, just got to jump in and say this; how anyone can align the interests, intentions and agendas of 'major corporations' and the people who run and control these institutions with 'communism' is quite frankly beyond me and shows a complete lack of understanding of the ideologies that influence both.


Have you ever worked inside a major corp? If you had you wouldn't wonder as much. They already have the bureaucratic type structure. It would transfer over to that sort of society very well. All it would have to do is become the official apparatus of the state in order to apply.

But communism is about state control of everything, corporations are privately owned by a priviliged few and are free from government/state control. Private ownership is not allowed under communism.
Many would argue that corporations have an undue influence over governments/states.

They are diametrically opposed.

Corporations are structured much like a communistic bureaucratic apparatus. The only question becomes which entity consumes the other.

In China, the state is the business. In the West, it may turn out the other way.

But get few enough entities either way, and it all ends up the same. They own it all and you exist in their structure.

Privileged few...

So... what’s a stock? You know, those things you can buy.. freely... between the hours of 9:30 AM and 4:00 PM ET most week days...

A stock is an ownership share of a company.

You can now buy “slices” of a stock for 5 dollars... literally.

The barrier to entry is so low that at this point literally no one has an excuse to not buy shares.

And when you do, those “privileged few” are now working for you. And you get to profit off them for doing basically nothing yourself.

So you can climb above your fellow humans. Id like to think if a mystery donor gave me billions i wouldnt turn into one of them, in fact id like to say that if that did happen id give the vast majority away, a million to each person that executed an elite, bosses of banks, big pharma, MSM.
Them and the zombies (disinfo agents)

It would be interesting to see what sheep do with no shepherds.

Make no mistake all that has happened this year has put
them to far down the road to turn back now. And they will
always have the advantage because they know what they want.

And we don't. By the time we get it into our heads that somethings
happening. It will be over.

Hitler's blitzkrieg will look like a bee bee gun fight compared to what's
coming to the US. The wheels are in motion and this ends only one way
if they keep making the decisions. For us if some crazy bastards don't
jump up and throw a wrench in their works real soon? Forget it put
a fork in us.

Get enough people owning stock and the workers own the means of production, but they don't run it. Just like the state in communism.

Yeah they do - two ways. Voting rights and capital flight.

Tank the share price and stop buying their goods? Doesn’t work out well for the elites you are all railing against.

You’re as powerless as you think you are in this situation. Does most everyone have limitations? Oh yeah - everyone does in various capacities - but that isn’t to say you’re going to throw your weight around like Bezos.

You do, however, have the ability to profit off of them, enhance your life, teach others to do so and in the process become less “dependent” on these elites.

If any of you have, or are willing, to take the time to go actually learn about capital markets, economics, taxation, estate planning, corporate structures, investment banking/VC, etc. to get how the game actually works - which since you can post here you can do since you can read - you’ll instead say “it’s rigged” and turn it into the devil you know.

Because short of a lottery ticket If you can’t speak the language of business or money then you’ll forever hate those who do - even though you can just as easily pick up a book and figure it out yourself.

I witnessed first hand what happens when people have small amounts of stocks and shares etc.....they all ended up in the hands of major corporations - mainly French and German - and as a result almost every single utility in the UK is now privately owned.....by a privileged few.

Very small investors are only interested in very small profits and will cash out very early.

So... they owned small companies which got bought?

Not at all.
The government sold off the government owned utility companies to 'the people' - which they already owned.
These small investors made a little bit of many very quickly and sold their shares on.

Literally all utility companies are now owned by foreign companies with just a privileged few large share owners.

I think only water is publicly owned in scotland , everything else is private

we need to take by ownership of the utilities

before its too late

but the internal markets bill will probably make this happen privitise everything

Corporations don’t care about individuals... it’s about the greater goal of the company. One goal, one company, unified power.

Nationalisation is a dirty word nowadays.

Personally I'd re-nationalise every single one of our utilities along with rail services - maybe all public transport - andmaybe even The Royal Mail.

But, and its a massive big #ing BUT, I'd make sure they were run exactly the same as efficient modern day private companies yet with transparency and public oversight.

I won't be holding my breath though as I can't see it happening any time soon.

Neither do politicians.

Individuals care about individuals, thankfully. Which is why putting as much sovereign power in the hands of the individual is so crucial. It prevents large groups of # morons making decisions that impact my life

Funny. Dick Costolo has a net worth of about $300 million dollars.




But but but...he is so virtuous?

I'm not really clear yet on what makes him think he
is a good person. Just months ago we hear about
"if we can save one life". Now its gone to "firing squads"
for business owners that vote for trump.

The left is a bunch of carcasses.



You know, one time I told a fellow employee that George Soros was not such a nice person and that at age 14 he had confiscated wealth of the Jews in Hungary for the Nazis, and as an adult billionaire he says outright in an interview he had no remorse whatever. This employee then said to me oh but look what he does he gives so much money away. And do you know, that is what all these wealthy elites do, they give massive amounts of money to charitable orgs and NGOs and special interest groups so they are perceived as nice and good. Clearly Soros Hates America and American conservatives and what we stand for (Liberty and our Representative government and small government).
The wealthy do get tax breaks for charitable giving so it’s not really that they are nice.

Thats just socialism. State run is not better than private run.
By the way, US Postal workers were told to mark time stamps on mail in ballots on Nov 3 even if they came in later. That’s a gov run facility committing election fraud deliberately.
