An End to Corporate Control? - OPPT

An End to Corporate Control? - OPPT

Hour 3. Leon is joined by Lisa Harrison and Ken Bartle. Both Lisa and Ken have been researching and sharing the Corporate Control systems including those assuming to be Government that enslave humanity.  Announced publicly on 25 December 2012, the system of Corporate-Governmental rule has been foreclosed. Legally foreclosed via one of its own mechanisms. The “Powers That Be” are now the “Powers That Were”. All debt has been erased and corporations – including but not limited to Corporate Governments and Banks – have been foreclosed.

Thanks to a series of UCC (Uniform Commercial Code) filings made by the One People’s Public Trust (known as OPPT) the choice is now yours to make. A new framework for social governance is now in effect; a fact that has been ratified by the ‘legal’ framework of its corporate-controlled predecessor.

The Corporation: The pathological pursuit of power 
Book & film by Joel Bakan
http://www.electricshadows.com.au/film/2401055480
 

Based on a book by Joel Bakan, The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Power, the film takes as its starting point the fact that, under American law, corporations are individuals and have the same rights as individual people. The film then examines the psychopathology of these "individuals". The corporations do not fare well. They have trouble, for example, making and sustaining long-term relationships; they exist only to serve their own self-interest (which would be pathological behaviour in a human individual); do not have a good record with honesty, often seem to act amorally, and often do not seem to suffer from guilt. Even world disaster areas can become profit centres for them. In a bid to own it all, even water and air and even plant DNA are up for grabs. There are no limits, and no molecule safe. In the pursuit of profit, corporations will deal with anyone (IBM with Nazi Germany, for example), and will try to render governments impotent if they get in the way. Yet some corporations are capable of mimicking human qualities of empathy, caring and altruism.

The Corporation: the pathological pursuit of power 
Book and film, by Joel Bakan,

What is a corporation? It is one form of business ownership, a group of people working together to a group of objectives. The modern corporation has grown out of the industrial revolution. Its all about productivity, getting more produce per man hour.

150 years ago the business corporation was a relatively insignificant institution, but today it is all invasive. Corporations were originally associations of people who were chartered by the state to perform a particular function, like build a bridge. There were very few chartered corporations in early US history and the ones that existed had clear stipulations in their state issued charters,  how long they could operate, the amount of capitalisation, what they made or did or maintained (a turnpike or whatever)  and they didn't do anything else, they own or couldn't  own another corporation, their shareholders were liable etc. In both law and the culture, the corporation was considered a subordinate entity that was considered a gift from the people to serve a public good.

The civil war and the industrial revolution created enormous growth in corporations and so there was an explosion of railroads which got large federal subsidies of land, banking, heavy manufacturing. And corporate lawyers, a century and a half ago, realised they needed more powers to operate and wanted to remove some of the constraints that had historically been placed on the corporate form.

The 14th amendment was passed at the end of the civil war to give equal rights to black people and therefore it said, no state can deprive any person of life liberty or property without due process of law and that was intended to prevent the states from taking away life, liberty or property from black people as they had done for so much of US history.

What happened was that corporations come into court, and corporate lawyers are very clever,  and they say, "Oh, you can't deprive a person of life, liberty or property? We are a person - a corporation is a person" - and the Supreme Court goes along with that. And what was particularly grotesque about this was that the 14th amendment was passed to protect newly freed slaves. 

So for instance, between between 1890 and 1910 there were 307 cases brought before the court under the 14th amendment - 288 of these brought by corporations, and 19 by African Americans. 600,000 people were killed to get rights for people and then with strokes of the pen over the next 30 years judges applied those rights to capital and property, while  stripping them from people.

The corporation - a legal person

What type of person is the corporation? These are special kinds of persons which are designed by law to be concerned only for their stockholders and not so much for the stakeholders, like the community or the workforce or whatever. 

The great problem is that they aren't like the rest of us. They have no soul to save, and they have no body to incarcerate. They really only have one interest, the bottom line, how to make as much money as they can. Of course they make a profit and that's a good thing, it gives them the incentive to make capitalism work, incentive to make the things that we need and that's what other systems lack. The problem comes in the profit motivation because with these people there is no such thing as enough.

The publicly traded corporation has been structured by a series of legal decisions to have a peculiar and disturbing characteristic. It is required by law to place the financial interests of its owners above competing interests. In fact the corporation is legally bound to put its bottom line ahead of everything else, even the public good.

That's not a law of nature, its a judicial decision. So they are concerned only with short-term profit of their stockholders who are very highly concentrated. Close to half the stock is owned by about 1% of the population and the bottom 80% of the population hold about 4% of the stock. Being on the stock market, being a public company is great in many ways but it doesn't allow any time for reflection, it has to maximise its profits and therefore everything is legitimate in the pursuit of that goal - everything, not explicit but everything.

Externalising of costs

The corporation tends to be more profitable to the extent it can get others to pay its bills for its impact on society. The term for this is called externalities. There are real problems in this area.

Running a business is a tough proposition. There are costs to be minimised at every turn and at some point the corporation says, "Let's let somebody else deal with that, let's let somebody else supply the military power to the middle east to protect the oil at its source, let's let somebody else build the roads that we can drive these automobiles on, let's let somebody else have those problems". And that's where externalities come from, that notion of letting somebody else deal with that - " I have all I can handle myself". 

The corporation is an externalising machine the same way a shark is a killing machine. Each one is designed in a very efficient way to accomplish particular objectives. In the achievement of those objectives there isn't any question of malevolence or of will. The enterprise has within it, and the shark has within it, those characteristics that enable it to do those functions for which it was designed. So the the pressure is on the corporation to deliver results now, and to externalise any costs that an unwary or uncaring public will allow it to to externalise.

The science of exploitation

To determine the kind of personality that drives the corporation to behave like an externalising machine, we can analyse it like a psychiatrist would a patient. We can even formulate a diagnosis on the basis of typical case histories, of harm inflicted on others, selected from a universe of corporate activity.

Callous unconcern for the feelings of others 

Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships 

Harm to human health

Reckless disregard for the safety of others, harm to animals 

Deceitfulness and repeated lying and conning others for profit 

Incapacity to experience guilt

Harm to environment

Failure to conform to social norms with respect to to lawful behaviours, ie obey the law if its cost effective, business decisions based on economics

Unaccountable to nobody except itself - the biosphere is in decline, all the animals are in decline through pollution and loss of habitat.

Diagnosis - the corporation bears all the marks of a psychopath who bears no responsibility for its actions.

Can any and every product be made sustainability? Not every product eg landmines. Some products ought not be made at all. Unless we can make products sustainably perhaps we don't have a place in this world. The way of the corporation is the way of the plunderer, plundering something that belongs to every creature on earth. The day must come when plundering is not allowed.

The largest, the wealthiest, the most powerful, the most pervasive, the most influential is the institution of business and industry - the corporation - which also is the current present day industry of destruction. It must change.


Confessions of an Economic Hit Man: How the U.S. Uses Globalization to Cheat Poor Countries Out of Trillions
Tuesday, November 9th, 2004
http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=04/11/09/1526251 

We speak with John Perkins, a former respected member of the international banking community. In his book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man he describes how as a highly paid professional, he helped the U.S. cheat poor countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars by lending them more money than they could possibly repay and then take over their economies. 

John Perkins describes himself as a former economic hit man - a highly paid professional who cheated countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars.

20 years ago Perkins began writing a book with the working title, "Conscience of an Economic Hit Men."

Perkins writes, "The book was to be dedicated to the presidents of two countries, men who had been his clients whom I respected and thought of as kindred spirits - Jaime Roldós, president of Ecuador, and Omar Torrijos, president of Panama. Both had just died in fiery crashes. Their deaths were not accidental. They were assassinated because they opposed that fraternity of corporate, government, and banking heads whose goal is global empire. We Economic Hit Men failed to bring Roldós and Torrijos around, and the other type of hit men, the CIA-sanctioned jackals who were always right behind us, stepped in.

John Perkins goes on to write: "I was persuaded to stop writing that book. I started it four more times during the next twenty years. On each occasion, my decision to begin again was influenced by current world events: the U.S. invasion of Panama in 1980, the first Gulf War, Somalia, and the rise of Osama bin Laden. However, threats or bribes always convinced me to stop."

But now Perkins has finally published his story. The book is titled Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. John Perkins joins us now in our Firehouse studios.

John Perkins, from 1971 to 1981 he worked for the international consulting firm of Chas T. Main where he was a self-described "economic hit man." He is the author of the new book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.


RUSH TRANSCRIPT

AMY GOODMAN: John Perkins joins us now in our firehouse studio. Welcome to Democracy Now!

JOHN PERKINS: Thank you, Amy. It’s great to be here.

AMY GOODMAN: It’s good to have you with us. Okay, explain this term, “economic hit man,” e.h.m., as you call it.

JOHN PERKINS: Basically what we were trained to do and what our job is to do is to build up the American empire. To bring -- to create situations where as many resources as possible flow into this country, to our corporations, and our government, and in fact we’ve been very successful. We’ve built the largest empire in the history of the world. It's been done over the last 50 years since World War II with very little military might, actually. It's only in rare instances like Iraq where the military comes in as a last resort. This empire, unlike any other in the history of the world, has been built primarily through economic manipulation, through cheating, through fraud, through seducing people into our way of life, through the economic hit men. I was very much a part of that.

AMY GOODMAN: How did you become one? Who did you work for?

JOHN PERKINS: Well, I was initially recruited while I was in business school back in the late sixties by the National Security Agency, the nation's largest and least understood spy organization; but ultimately I worked for private corporations. The first real economic hit man was back in the early 1950's, Kermit Roosevelt, the grandson of Teddy, who overthrew of government of Iran, a democratically elected government, Mossadegh’s government who was Time's magazine person of the year; and he was so successful at doing this without any bloodshed -- well, there was a little bloodshed, but no military intervention, just spending millions of dollars and replaced Mossadegh with the Shah of Iran. At that point, we understood that this idea of economic hit man was an extremely good one. We didn't have to worry about the threat of war with Russia when we did it this way. The problem with that was that Roosevelt was a C.I.A. agent. He was a government employee. Had he been caught, we would have been in a lot of trouble. It would have been very embarrassing. So, at that point, the decision was made to use organizations like the C.I.A. and the N.S.A. to recruit potential economic hit men like me and then send us to work for private consulting companies, engineering firms, construction companies, so that if we were caught, there would be no connection with the government.

AMY GOODMAN: Okay. Explain the company you worked for.

JOHN PERKINS: Well, the company I worked for was a company named Chas. T. Main in Boston, Massachusetts. We were about 2,000 employees, and I became its chief economist. I ended up having fifty people working for me. But my real job was deal-making. It was giving loans to other countries, huge loans, much bigger than they could possibly repay. One of the conditions of the loan–let's say a $1 billion to a country like Indonesia or Ecuador–and this country would then have to give ninety percent of that loan back to a U.S. company, or U.S. companies, to build the infrastructure–a Halliburton or a Bechtel. These were big ones. Those companies would then go in and build an electrical system or ports or highways, and these would basically serve just a few of the very wealthiest families in those countries. The poor people in those countries would be stuck ultimately with this amazing debt that they couldn’t possibly repay. A country today like Ecuador owes over fifty percent of its national budget just to pay down its debt. And it really can’t do it. So, we literally have them over a barrel. So, when we want more oil, we go to Ecuador and say, “Look, you're not able to repay your debts, therefore give our oil companies your Amazon rain forest, which are filled with oil.” And today we're going in and destroying Amazonian rain forests, forcing Ecuador to give them to us because they’ve accumulated all this debt. So we make this big loan, most of it comes back to the United States, the country is left with the debt plus lots of interest, and they basically become our servants, our slaves. It's an empire. There's no two ways about it. It’s a huge empire. It's been extremely successful.

AMY GOODMAN: We're talking to John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. You say because of bribes and other reason you didn't write this book for a long time. What do you mean? Who tried to bribe you, or who -- what are the bribes you accepted?

JOHN PERKINS: Well, I accepted a half a million dollar bribe in the nineties not to write the book.

AMY GOODMAN: From?

JOHN PERKINS: From a major construction engineering company.

AMY GOODMAN: Which one?

JOHN PERKINS: Legally speaking, it wasn't -- Stoner-Webster. Legally speaking it wasn't a bribe, it was -- I was being paid as a consultant. This is all very legal. But I essentially did nothing. It was a very understood, as I explained in Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, that it was -- I was -- it was understood when I accepted this money as a consultant to them I wouldn't have to do much work, but I mustn't write any books about the subject, which they were aware that I was in the process of writing this book, which at the time I called “Conscience of an Economic Hit Man.” And I have to tell you, Amy, that, you know, it’s an extraordinary story from the standpoint of -- It's almost James Bondish, truly, and I mean--

AMY GOODMAN: Well that's certainly how the book reads.

JOHN PERKINS: Yeah, and it was, you know? And when the National Security Agency recruited me, they put me through a day of lie detector tests. They found out all my weaknesses and immediately seduced me. They used the strongest drugs in our culture, sex, power and money, to win me over. I come from a very old New England family, Calvinist, steeped in amazingly strong moral values. I think I, you know, I’m a good person overall, and I think my story really shows how this system and these powerful drugs of sex, money and power can seduce people, because I certainly was seduced. And if I hadn't lived this life as an economic hit man, I think I’d have a hard time believing that anybody does these things. And that's why I wrote the book, because our country really needs to understand, if people in this nation understood what our foreign policy is really about, what foreign aid is about, how our corporations work, where our tax money goes, I know we will demand change.

AMY GOODMAN: We're talking to John Perkins. In your book, you talk about how you helped to implement a secret scheme that funnelled billions of dollars of Saudi Arabian petrol dollars back into the U.S. economy, and that further cemented the intimate relationship between the House of Saud and successive U.S. administrations. Explain.

JOHN PERKINS: Yes, it was a fascinating time. I remember well, you're probably too young to remember, but I remember well in the early seventies how OPEC exercised this power it had, and cut back on oil supplies. We had cars lined up at gas stations. The country was afraid that it was facing another 1929-type of crash–depression; and this was unacceptable. So, they -- the Treasury Department hired me and a few other economic hit men. We went to Saudi Arabia. We --

AMY GOODMAN: You're actually called economic hit men --e.h.m.’s?

JOHN PERKINS: Yeah, it was a tongue-in-cheek term that we called ourselves. Officially, I was a chief economist. We called ourselves e.h.m.'s. It was tongue-in-cheek. It was like, nobody will believe us if we say this, you know? And, so, we went to Saudi Arabia in the early seventies. We knew Saudi Arabia was the key to dropping our dependency, or to controlling the situation. And we worked out this deal whereby the Royal House of Saud agreed to send most of their petro-dollars back to the United States and invest them in U.S. government securities. The Treasury Department would use the interest from these securities to hire U.S. companies to build Saudi Arabia–new cities, new infrastructure–which we’ve done. And the House of Saud would agree to maintain the price of oil within acceptable limits to us, which they’ve done all of these years, and we would agree to keep the House of Saud in power as long as they did this, which we’ve done, which is one of the reasons we went to war with Iraq in the first place. And in Iraq we tried to implement the same policy that was so successful in Saudi Arabia, but Saddam Hussein didn't buy. When the economic hit men fail in this scenario, the next step is what we call the jackals. Jackals are C.I.A.-sanctioned people that come in and try to foment a coup or revolution. If that doesn't work, they perform assassinations. or try to. In the case of Iraq, they weren't able to get through to Saddam Hussein. He had -- His bodyguards were too good. He had doubles. They couldn’t get through to him. So the third line of defense, if the economic hit men and the jackals fail, the next line of defense is our young men and women, who are sent in to die and kill, which is what we’ve obviously done in Iraq.

AMY GOODMAN: Can you explain how Torrijos died?

JOHN PERKINS: Omar Torrijos, the President of Panama. Omar Torrijos had signed the Canal Treaty with Carter much -- and, you know, it passed our congress by only one vote. It was a highly contended issue. And Torrijos then also went ahead and negotiated with the Japanese to build a sea-level canal. The Japanese wanted to finance and construct a sea-level canal in Panama. Torrijos talked to them about this which very much upset Bechtel Corporation, whose president was George Schultz and senior council was Casper Weinberger. When Carter was thrown out (and that’s an interesting story–how that actually happened), when he lost the election, and Reagan came in and Schultz came in as Secretary of State from Bechtel, and Weinberger came from Bechtel to be Secretary of Defense, they were extremely angry at Torrijos -- tried to get him to renegotiate the Canal Treaty and not to talk to the Japanese. He adamantly refused. He was a very principled man. He had his problem, but he was a very principled man. He was an amazing man, Torrijos. And so, he died in a fiery airplane crash, which was connected to a tape recorder with explosives in it, which -- I was there. I had been working with him. I knew that we economic hit men had failed. I knew the jackals were closing in on him, and the next thing, his plane exploded with a tape recorder with a bomb in it. There's no question in my mind that it was C.I.A. sanctioned, and most -- many Latin American investigators have come to the same conclusion. Of course, we never heard about that in our country.

AMY GOODMAN: So, where -- when did your change your heart happen?

JOHN PERKINS: I felt guilty throughout the whole time, but I was seduced. The power of these drugs, sex, power, and money, was extremely strong for me. And, of course, I was doing things I was being patted on the back for. I was chief economist. I was doing things that Robert McNamara liked and so on.

AMY GOODMAN: How closely did you work with the World Bank?

JOHN PERKINS: Very, very closely with the World Bank. The World Bank provides most of the money that’s used by economic hit men, it and the I.M.F. But when 9/11 struck, I had a change of heart. I knew the story had to be told because what happened at 9/11 is a direct result of what the economic hit men are doing. And the only way that we're going to feel secure in this country again and that we're going to feel good about ourselves is if we use these systems we’ve put into place to create positive change around the world. I really believe we can do that. I believe the World Bank and other institutions can be turned around and do what they were originally intended to do, which is help reconstruct devastated parts of the world. Help -- genuinely help poor people. There are twenty-four thousand people starving to death every day. We can change that.

AMY GOODMAN: John Perkins, I want to thank you very much for being with us. John Perkins' book is called, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

NSA (National Security Agency) insider comes forward with stunning disclosures "Economic Hit Man"

Rarely does the public get an opportunity to learn what has really been going on.

John Perkins has "risked it all" by publishing his book ,"Economic Hit Man", only 3 months ago. This will answer a LOT OF QUESTIONS many have been suspecting.

I know most do not like to make time to listen to audio clips. You will want to make an exception this time. Normally, I try to limit my excerpts to 1 or 2 - 10 minute audio segments. The 3 1/2 hour interview had so many disclosures, which we seldom, if ever, learn about, that I could not ignore them...thus the length of this particular set of audio clip excerpts.

"Economic Hit Man"

John Perkins, the founder of Dream Change Coalition, shared the story of the time he spent as an international 'economic hit man' after being recruited by the National Security Agency. He defined an 'economic hit man' as someone who assists in cheating developing countries and US taxpayers, by funneling money from the World Bank to the wealthy in the private sector.

THE MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS AND THE GOVERNMENTS
http://home.iae.nl/users/lightnet/creator/dilemmacentralsouthamerica.htm

This awareness indicates that for the most part these multinational corporations and the governments which they control tend to enter into areas to exploit the countries, setting up just enough structure within the country to call it a government, recognize it as being the legitimate government, and defend it against all other who might interfere with their structured corporate government within that country.

This Awareness indicates that wherein democracies or other forms of political activities are brought to bear against these corporate governments and structures, these are termed as outlaw forces and the corporate structures using their influence in the nations will seek to supply arms to defend their established governments in the smaller nations.

This Awareness indicates that if entities could strip away the belief that governments are created and held by the sacredness of a constitution or law within a country, and see these governments are established and created by the economics of intrigue and corporate structures, they would realize half of the reality upon this plane, they would recognize the forces that are acting in regard to much of the developing nations and emanating from those nations in which the corporations hold power.

This Awareness indicates that on the other side, there is the State Socialists as represented by the concepts of Communism, ( the State) this as Communism and Bolshevism, the State Socialists as opposed to the Capitalist, or Corporate Socialists, approach these developing nations to exploit the people by seducing their minds into the belief that they are being violated by the Corporate Socialists through the exploitation of their land, their minerals, their natural resources, encourage and incite them into attempting revolution to overthrow those corporate governments that have been set up, and to take back the land for themselves.

This Awareness indicates that the action parallels the early revolutionary war of the United States wherein the rebels, rebelling against the British rule, overthrew these governing bodies and set up their own constitution. The difference however, is that the advisors to these revolutionary factions allow these people to develop their own governing bodies only along certain lines that are compatible with the world design of Communism. This Awareness indicates that the two more powerful forces of the Communism, which is an economic policy, and Capitalism, which is an economic policy or system, these two systems do in fact have greater political clout than the constitution and laws that are paraded before the public. The constitutions and laws of the various nations are in actuality but facades to these two powerful forces.

THE FIRST 2 STEPS: RECOGNIZING THE TRUE FORCES

This Awareness indicates that wherein entities can recognize the true conflict in regards to the communistic designs and the capitalistic designs as opposed to looking at these sub-concepts of democracy versus dictatorship, the entities have broadened their understanding of what is occurring in the world by one step.

This Awareness indicates that to take the second step, and to understand that the two forces (the Corporate Capital; Capitalists, or Corporate Socialists as opposed to the State Socialists or Communism, that these two forces are in working as the right and left hand of the same entity. Though there is a continual conflict between these forces, the ultimate goal and purpose of these forces is a world domination and hierarchy whereby the classes are separated and the elite rule under either name, so that there are the masters and the slaves.

This Awareness indicates that the problem which occurs in this effort of the right and left hand of the Dark Force in its manipulating activities is that it becomes serious and intense in its efforts, so much so that it becomes likened unto a schizophrenia, whereby the controlling brain becomes split and the conflict becomes real, though its earlier intention was merely to present a show which would manipulate the masses.

This Awareness indicates that in manipulating the masses back and forth so that they maneuvered toward a One World Government; this was the intention, but certain things occurred and the third step in understanding what happens is to recognize that the Beast or the controlling brain behind this activity, having its purpose and goal to maneuver entities into a One World Government whereby all power is held over the resources of all nations, including the people thereof; all power being held by this one brain or one group of entities, a collective society.

It's the Corporate State, Stupid

"Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power." - Benito Mussolini. 

David G. Mills

11/10/04 "ICH"
-- The early twentieth century Italians, who invented the word fascism, also had a more descriptive term for the concept -- estato corporativo: the corporatist state. Unfortunately for Americans, we have come to equate fascism with its symptoms, not with its structure. The structure of fascism is corporatism, or the corporate state. The structure of fascism is the union, marriage, merger or fusion of corporate economic power with governmental power. Failing to understand fascism, as the consolidation of corporate economic and governmental power in the hands of a few, is to completely misunderstand what fascism is. It is the consolidation of this power that produces the demagogues and regimes we understand as fascist ones. 

While we Americans have been trained to keenly identify the opposite of fascism, i.e., government intrusion into and usurpation of private enterprise, we have not been trained to identify the usurpation of government by private enterprise. Our European cousins, on the other hand, having lived with Fascism in several European countries during the last century, know it when they see it, and looking over here, they are ringing the alarm bells. We need to learn how to recognize Fascism now. 

Dr. Lawrence Britt has written an excellent article entitled “The 14 Defining Characteristics of Fascism.” An Internet search of the number 14 coupled with the word fascism will produce the original article as well as many annotations on each of the 14 characteristics of fascism that he describes. His article is a must read to help get a handle on the symptoms that corporatism produces. 

But even Britt’s excellent article misses the importance of Mussolini’s point. The concept of corporatism is number nine on Britt’s list and unfortunately titled: “Corporate Power is Protected.” In the view of Mussolini, the concept of corporatism should have been number one on the list and should have been more aptly titled the “Merger of Corporate Power and State Power.” Even Britt failed to see the merger of corporate and state power as the primary cause of most of these other characteristics. It is only when one begins to view fascism as the merger of corporate power and state power that it is easy to see how most of the other thirteen characteristics Britt describes are produced. Seen this way, these other characteristics no longer become disjointed abstractions. Cause and effect is evident. 

For example, number two on Britt’s list is titled: “Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights.” Individual rights and corporate rights, at the very least conflict, and often are in downright opposition to one another. In the court system, often individuals must sue corporations. In America, in order to protect corporations, we have seen a steady stream of rules, decisions and laws to protect corporations and to limit the rights of the individual by lawsuit and other redress. These rules, decisions, and laws have always been justified on the basis of the need for corporations to have profit in order to exist. 

Number three on Britt’s list is the identification of scapegoats or enemies as a unifying cause. Often the government itself becomes the scapegoat when the government is the regulator of the corporations. Often it is lawyers or administrators who take on the corporations. Often it is liberals who champion the rights of individuals, or terrorists who might threaten state stability or corporate profit. Any or all may become scapegoats for the state’s problems because they pose problems for corporations. 

Other notable characteristics of fascism described by Britt which are directly produced by corporatism are: 

< The suppression of organized labor (organized labor is the bane of corporations and the only real check on corporate power other than government or the legal system);

< Supremacy of the military (it is necessary to produce and protect corporate profits abroad and threats from abroad); 

< Cronyism and governmental corruption (it is very beneficial to have ex-corporate employees run the agencies or make the laws that are supposed to regulate or check corporations);

< Fraudulent elections (especially those where corporations run the machinery of elections and count the votes or where judges decide their outcomes); 

< Nationalism (disdain for other countries that might promote individual rights);

< Obsession with national security (anti-corporatists are a security risk to the corporate status quo); 

< Control of the media (propaganda works);

< Obsession with crime and punishment (anti-corporatists belong in jail); and 

< Disdain for intellectuals and the arts (these people see corporatism for what it is and are highly individualistic). 

All of these characteristics have a fairly obvious corporate component to them or produce a fairly obvious corporate benefit. Even Britt’s last two characteristics, the merger of state with the dominant religion and rampant suppression of divorce, abortion and homosexuality produce at least some indirect corporate benefit. 

In sum, it’s the corporate state, stupid. 

As I have pondered what could be done about America’s steady march toward the fascist state, I also have pondered what can be done internally to stop it. The Germans couldn’t seem to do it. The Italians couldn’t seem to do it. The only lesson from recent history where an indigenous people seemed to have uncoupled the merger of economic power with governmental power is the French Revolution. The soft underbelly of consolidated economic power is that the power resides in the hands of a few. Cut off the money supply of the few and the merger between economic power and government becomes unglued. The French systematically took out their aristocracy one by one. It was ugly; the French couldn’t seem to figure out when there had been enough bloodletting to solve the problem. 

The thought of an American twenty-first century French Revolution is ugly. But the thought of an American twenty-first century fascist state is far uglier. It would be a supreme irony that the state most responsible for stopping worldwide fascism would become fascist 60 years later. But far worse than this irony is the reality that an American fascist state with America’s power could make Nazi Germany look like a tiny blip on the radar screen of history. 

For some years now we have lived with the Faustian bargain of the corporation. Large corporations are necessary to achieve those governmental and social necessities that small enterprises are incapable of providing. The checks on corporate power have always been fragile. Left unchecked, the huge economic power of corporations corrupts absolutely. Most of the checks are badly eroded. Is there still time to get the checks back in balance? Or will we be left with two unthinkable options?

Experts
http://www.home.earthlink.net/~jnewell957/#dark

99% of experts become experts for financial compensation, ego expansion and power. They are almost all paid well. Only corporations and well funded organisations can afford to pay the experts. Corporation that employ the experts have only two moral obligations: the first is to obey the law and the second is to maximize the returns on investment without reference to any other morals. 

Any public good that costs money reduces the stockholders' return and is thus necessarily immoral. The obligations of corporations are consistent with the attitudes of those who become corporate
officers and officers of other institutions. In pursuance of their obligations the officers will punish any experts in their employment or in their direct or indirect control who might communicate negative information about the corporations. The treatment of whisle-blowers illustrates the above point. All well funded organisations are cont rolled by corporations.

The expert himself will, after spending much time, money and trauma in acquiring his expertise, will be hostile to negative information which would make his expertise less valuable. Since corp orations control the curricula of most institutes of learning, the expert will not be taught any negative information about any aspect of the corporations. Thus no expert can be expected to articulate, admit or even know about negative information about his field.

 

Companies to boycott
http://www.thegreatboycott.net/
By Jon Rappaport

These corporations and others like them stand for control of the planet, as around us the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Each of these eight corporations is at least four things: a pesticide company, a pharmaceutical company, a genetic food seed company and a producer of industrial chemicals. The eight corporations to be boycotted are:

Dow
Du Pont
Monsanto
Imperial Chemical Industries
Novartis
Rhone Poulenc
Bayer
Hoechst

Concerned Australians should study three books.
http://www.alphalink.com.au/~noelmcd/articles/media.htm

Shutdown: The Failure of Economic Rationalism and How to Rescue Australia (1992), edited by John Carroll and Robert Manne.

Australia 2000: "What Will We Tell Our Children?" (1997), by Jeremy Lee, provides the evidence about what has and is happening to Australia.

Economic Rationalism: A Disaster for Australia (1997), by Graham Strachan, provides a discussion of the objectives and operations of the predatory foreign corporations.

 

The Left Right Paradigm is Over: Its You vs. Corporations 
http://usawatchdog.com/democrats-vs-republicans-its-you-vs-corporations/ 

For a long time, American politics has been defined by a Left/Right dynamic. It was Liberals versus Conservatives on a variety of issues. Pro-Life versus Pro-Choice, Tax Cuts vs. More Spending, Pro-War vs Peaceniks, Environmental Protections vs. Economic Growth, Pro-Union vs. Union-Free, Gay Marriage vs. Family Values, School Choice vs. Public Schools, Regulation vs. Free Markets.

The new dynamic, however, has moved past the old Left Right paradigm. We now live in an era defined by increasing Corporate influence and authority over the individual. These two “interest groups” – I can barely suppress snorting derisively over that phrase – have been on a headlong collision course for decades, which came to a head with the financial collapse and bailouts. Where there is massive concentrations of wealth and influence, there will be abuse of power.  The Individual has been supplanted in the political process nearly entirely by corporate money, legislative influence, campaign contributions, even free speech rights.

This may not be a brilliant insight, but it is surely an overlooked one. It is now an Individual vs. Corporate debate – and the Humans are losing.

Consider:

• Many of the regulations that govern energy and banking sector were written by Corporations;

• The biggest influence on legislative votes is often Corporate Lobbying;

• Corporate ability to extend copyright far beyond what original protections amounts to a taking of public works for private corporate usage;

• PAC and campaign finance by Corporations has supplanted individual donations to elections;

• The individuals’ right to seek redress in court has been under attack for decades, limiting their options.

• DRM and content protection undercuts the individual’s ability to use purchased content as they see fit;

• Patent protections are continually weakened. Deep pocketed corporations can usurp inventions almost at will;

• The Supreme Court has ruled that Corporations have Free Speech rights equivalent to people; (So much for original intent!)

 

L.A. calls for end to 'corporate personhood'
December 6, 2011, Los Angeles Times blog
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/12/corporate-personhood-la-constitutional-amendment.html

At a packed City Council meeting ... Los Angeles lawmakers Tuesday called for more regulations on how much corporations can spend on political campaigns. The vote in support of state and federal legislation that would end so-called "corporate personhood” is largely symbolic. The council resolution includes support for a constitutional amendment that would assert that corporations are not entitled to constitutional rights, and that spending money is not a form of free speech. City Council President Eric Garcetti, the resolution's sponsor, said such actions are necessary because “big special interest money” is behind much of the gridlock in Washington. He blamed a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Citizens United vs. the Federal Election Commission, which rolled back legal restrictions on corporate spending on the grounds that political speech by a business entity should receive the same 1st Amendment protections that people do. It allows corporations and other groups to spend unlimited money on behalf of candidates. Councilman Richard Alarcon, who also supported the resolution, said corporations are “trying to take over every aspect of our lives.” “Corporations are at the wheel of America,” Alarcon said. “And they are driving us to destruction.”

In 1983, 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the U.S. At the time, Ben Bagdikian was called "alarmist" for pointing this out in his book, The Media Monopoly. In his 4th edition, published in 1992, he wrote "in the U.S., fewer than two dozen of these extraordinary creatures own and operate 90% of the mass media" -- controlling almost all of America's newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, books, records, movies, videos, wire services and photo agencies. He predicted then that eventually this number would fall to about half a dozen companies. This was greeted with skepticism at the time. When the 6th edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 2000, the number had fallen to six. Since then, there have been more mergers and the scope has expanded to include new media like the Internet market.

In 2004, Bagdikian's revised and expanded book, The New Media Monopoly, shows that only 5 huge corporations -- Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch's News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, and Viacom (formerly CBS) -- now control most of the media industry in the U.S. General Electric's NBC is a close sixth.
