CORPORATOCRACY

Table of Contents

CORPORATE CAPITALISM

“The corporate mantra is to avoid paying taxes, exploit consumers & workers at every opportunity; to squeeze the most profit from the least outlay possible. Corporate interests have pacified conservatives with money and liberals with meaningless woke jargon. Meanwhile, corporate capitalism does nothing to improve society in any form unless it profits, or costs nothing. By default this means a stratified society of winners and consumers and losers.”

NEO-FEUDAL LINEAGE

“It’s going to take something more than a profit motive to give the losers a humane future but we can’t look to business to show humanity when our politicians have been corrupted. The political class must be made accountable. The ruling elites must not be allowed to enrich themselves at the cost of a fair and just society; not if we want to build a world where ‘all men are created equal’ is more than an empty tagline for a neo-feudal lineage plutarchy.”

Jacob Weisberg: Cozy Relationships Between Press, Law, Academic and Government [Authority]

Jacob Weisberg of the New Republic [Centre-Left Corporate Democrat Magazine] fretted about the "increasingly cozy relationships between press, law, academia and government" that he saw there. "There’s rarely been a time when the governing elites in so many fields were made up of such a tight, hermetic and incestuous clique. The Clinton circle [and its successor like the Obamas on Martha's Vineyard] has a pronounced class consciousness that tells them they’re not just lucky to be here. They’re running things because they’re the best."

NOTE: the New Republic is now a mouthpiece of Democratic Party professional plutocracy.
