By Christopher Jay Thompson.
I am sick of living under the Iron fist of corporate rule. It has gotten to the point where major corporations have more power than governments. We think that our current president, but the president is the same president who has been in power since the end of the 1800’s. That president is big Oil, its cabinet members are the coal industry, Wal-Mart, Fox, Disney,Sony, the Auto industry and other corporate Entities.
When are Americans going to realise that they have been made into the Bitches of the Major corporations, mainly the corporations that control the supply of energy. Yet any time anyone wants to limit the power of the All powerful corporate elite they are called communists and Un-American. I think the all-encompassing power of wall street is un-american.
The corporate world is the biggest threat to our freedom than anything else in the world, but we have become so dependant on our corporate masters that we cannot see through the lies. Why are Americans so willing to bend over and take one for the team. This country was built on the Idea of personal freedom, not free enterprise.
We have gotten to the point that we don’t even Know how to grow food or make our own clothing. We would be helpless without the corporations. They take advantage of that fact. Maybe we need to relearn to do thing for ourselves so we won’t be so dependent on them in order to survive. It is cool to have interesting things like cars, computers and tv’s, but it isn’t cool to be dependent on greedy companies in order to survive. Slavery is slavery regardless of the form it takes. I believe it is time to stop being slaves.

I was reading”the Esential Chomsky” when I came upon the mention of a conflict I have never heard of before. It was the 1954 U.S. invasion of Guatemala.I thought to myself “What the hell did we invade Guatemala?” The proposition of our government invading this tiny central American country seemed Preposterous.
So I did a little research.Two things led to the invasion, Corporate greed, and Americas ati-comunist Hysteria.Guatemalla had a new government, the president of that country took unused land set aside for corporations and gave it back to the people, the United states Saw this as a step towards communism. That is ridiculous. Giving the people back what was esentialy theirs is communism? I thought democracy was about the people being in charge. Oh that’s right commun ism is a form of economy not government. So,capitalism, being a system where corporations control everything, is actually working against the foundations of democracy.
The real reason for the invasion was the fact that by giving the land back to the people, it to the land away from the American fruit companies, who would take the bananas without giving anything Back to Guatemala, and profit off of it. Why is it that all of our conflicts since World war 2 have been for the sake of resources and Corporate greed.
Even the Vietnam war turned out to really be about natural resources. the United states has no business Invading other countries and having the audacity to call it self-defense. we constantly wage wars in the name of rescuing the world of some hypothetical enemy that always has a different name and face, but the same goal : the destruction of America’s values and “the American way of life” . why do we keep falling for the same tricks. our government only cares about its own gains, and does not care about its own citizens.
