Have you seen the film "corporations"? http://www.commondreams.org/headlines04/0120-03.htm
- it's about the power, influence, and participation of companies like Ford, IBM, Lockheed, and others in the history of the world's tyrannical gov'ts.
IBM executives chatting with Adolf Hitler about what their technology could do for him, as did Ford motor. Dow Chemical selling Saddam Hussein the gas he would use against rebel Kurds, with US State Dept knowledge.
I would add Diebold to the thefts of our last two presidential elections - which, like many other anomalies since were "investigated" by ppl with a vested interest in maintaining the orig outcome.
The auctioning and prostitution of our Congress - actually the whole gov't - is appalling. I often feel that every one of them, incl the current crop of Pres candidates, is bought & paid for by corporations, special interests, global conglomerates - "on the payroll", a la many cops, thugs and judges in the days of Al Capone.
Ford, other Wall St. giants:http://www.thenation.com/doc/20000124/silversteinhttp://reformed-theology.org/html/books/wa...reet/index.html
this actually would make a great thread
I think I'll just do that
