Despite our best, often heroic efforts the New World Order of post-2012 is shaping up to be very difficult, indeed downright scary.

A corporation today can have an infinite lifespan. It doesn't fear death. It doesn't fear pain or incarceration. It doesn't need fresh water to drink or clean air to breathe. It doesn't need health care or retirement. Corporations are not people and should have privileges not rights and this is a great starting point for change.

I can think of two things that Democratic Presidents have done; one which should be implemented immediately and one that should be immediately repealed. JFK shut down the funnel to the silent partners in Europe who were and still are to this day; bilking the American public out of 17% on every dollar issued. He closed the FED down; put the currency under the control of the US Treasury and started reaping the benefits. I'm sure this was a major reason why he was murdered. The other of course is the reinstitution of Glass-Steagall which would take away the unfair advantage the investment banks have. JMO of course.

Thank you cal! One thing everyone should remember, we have to stick together to come out intact! Most know that already. I just want peace, love and a better future for the young ones of the world. It's so hard to see that our children are the ones that will be left to rebuild the mess that is becoming of the planet as a whole. It's so sad.

janice b, you are so right. It is also a way to escape personal responsibility.

Thanks, Cal. This is a great explanation. Yes, we need a revolution against the Corporatocracy...especially all those Trans-National, multi-national corporations that are popping up so fast it's like "whack-a-mole." Within the framework of the trade agreements, these humongous corporations are superseding state and local laws to steal land from property owners and destroy the environment.
