The tyranny of corporations

A Listmania! list by Guy Denutte "A concerned citizen" (Cali, Colombia)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "The Corporation is today's dominant institution. This awkward entity is considered a "person" by law, but has all the characteristics of a psychopath when examined closely: it shows neither emotions nor feelings, has no conscience, is incapable of experiencing guilt, and its sole purpose it is to make profits, no matter how.

Therefore, corporations are very fond of fascist regimes, such as Nazi Germany, where IBM offered support with their machines counting the deaths in the concentration camps. Corporations themselves sometimes behave as mass murderers, like the asbestos companies. They sometimes hire murderers, as Chiquita did in Colombia, to kill syndical leaders.

Corporations deplete our natural resources. Corporations prevent us from driving zero-emission electric cars. Corporations poisoned our natural environment and our food with artificial chemicals, causing a cancer epidemic, affecting nowadays 44 % of the men and 38 % of the women, following Dr. Samuel Epstein.

This world took another bad turn when Big Pharma decided to produce drugs for healthy people. Suddenly, all kinds of new complaints were invented, together with miraculous pills that were supposed to treat them. Not to cure them, but to treat them... for life... with "lifestyle drugs".

Corporations are so powerful that they are never prosecuted. Corporations got so powerful they determine how governments should behave, even if they go broke. Then the government must help them, socializing the losses to the people in general.

Corporations think of us as their enemies. Maybe it's time to fight back. Maybe it's time to boycott them. It will be good for your health, it will be good for your wallet, it will be good for the environment, and it will be of great help to any organic farmer living in your neighborhood. This farmer will probably treat you nice, delivering you tasty food produced without pesticides nor preservatives, earning money in an honest way. Try it."
The Corporation
1.  The Corporation DVD ~ Milton Friedman
The list author says:
  "Noam Chomsky gives his point of view on the privatizations we suffered in the last decades : "Privatization does not mean you take a public institution and give it to some nice person; it means you take a public institution and give it to an unaccountable tyranny”."

Vile Acts of Evil: Volume 1   Banking in America
2.  Vile Acts of Evil: Volume 1 Banking in America by Michael A. Kirchubel
The list author says:
  "All the depressions, recessions, and panics we suffer are not produced by an “invisible hand”, but by the *expansion and contraction of the money supply*. And who is behind this ?  It is not an invisible hand.  It is the *central bank* that interferes with the monetary expansion and contraction.  Contrary to popular belief, the Fed is not a national bank.  It is a cartel of private banks."

3.  Capitalism: A Love Story DVD ~ Michael Moore
