    Death by Corporation: America's Corporate Deathstar

    http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/18...rate-deathstar

    "In Parts I and II of Mankind: Death by Corporation, we looked briefly at what amounts to ruthless, psychopathic behavior of our largest corporations spanning most major industries. But aided and abetted by "sincere" government officials, corporations are working behind the scenes, rapidly assembling the corporate "Death Star" to be unleashed upon citizens throughout the world, allowing them virtually unchecked control of our food supply, our land, air, water, wallets and our future.

    An in-house editorial in the New York Times on July 5, began, "For all its rabid partisanship, Congress has shown time and again that it is willing to come together to deregulate corporate America." This new corporate giveaway is a bill in the Senate sponsored by Democrats and Republicans that would, for all intents and purposes, end the "independence" of independent regulatory agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the National Labor Relations Board. These independent agencies were established to be accountable to Congress - not the White House - with the goal of insulating them from political arm-twisting."

    "This bill is just a warm-up act. While the public and the media sleep, the real corporate "Death Star," the TransPacific Partnership (TPP), is being forged in secret. The term "partnership" hardly sounds ominous. But for the last two years TPP negotiations that could have unprecedented consequences to citizens throughout the world have been going on among a dozen Pacific Rim nations. No information has been made available to the press or the public - and only extremely limited access has been allowed to a few members of Congress. But last year a document was leaked to the watchdog group, Public Citizen, revealing the current US position and the reason for the secrecy. The contents are surreal and shocking, and prima facie evidence for how corporations have become the master puppeteers of government.

    "The leaked document reveals that the trade agreement would subordinate domestic law and policy to a binding international governance system. Specifically, TPP would (1) severely limit regulation of foreign corporations operating within US boundaries, giving them greater rights than domestic firms, (2) extend incentives for US firms to move investments and jobs to lower-wage countries, (3) establish an alternative legal system, creating "investor states" that give foreign corporations and investors new rights to circumvent US courts and laws, allowing them to sue the US government before foreign tribunals and demand compensation for lost revenue due to US laws they claim undermine their TPP privileges or their investment "expectations."

    Is this a realistic of Corporate USA?

    Does this make clear why the US Treasury was given to the "too big to fail banks?"

    Does this clarify why there are no jobs programs?

    Does this render a clue to the NSA information sponge?

    If you can keep track of every Internet bit, you can easily track every penny movement for precise control.

    When the mega-corps start redistricting out the United States into private territories, I want to be a Costco citizen.

    In fairness, the 1940s through the 1970s were somewhat anomalous to begin with. Human society works like chimpanzee society; the largest and best connected ape gets to hoot on the hill while his minions drudge it out in the sun.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    That, but imagine that the ape on the hill convinces others to rally around his exploitation.

    Yes. That is the point. A small group is reorganizing our way of life without defining the parameters. I'm totally suspicious of anything New World Order.

    Does anyone have a written agenda of the New World Order plan? I don't mean the CNAC plan of post Soviet dominance. The references to the New World Order are so ubiquitous that their plan must exist somewhere in a written format.

    Does "Globalization" mean Corporate control of trade, politics, boundaries, banking, etc. and is it another definition of New World Order?

    There's always the option to go off the grid.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    I am certain that is the option that Corporate Big Energy and Banking fear the most. Germany is closing fossil fuel plants because of the success of its solar renewable energy programs. The roadblock to renewables is the status quo of Big Money preventing local initiatives that undermine Centralized Distribution of Energy. It is, after all economic considerations, the "cash cow" that has allowed them to thrive. They don't want to kill their golden goose, even if it kills the planet.

    I had family that lived in West Virginia off the grid in the 60's. They lived off the land, worked their own crops, pumped their own water. They were almost completely self sufficient. Sugar, coffee, flour... these staples came from the store. It wasn't an easy life but I enjoyed spending time with them and working with them and enjoying their lifestyle when I got a chance to do it.

    Is living off the grid really a viable option for anyone on the Internet?
