Yeah, it is pretty pathetic. It’s the 21st century version of feudalism except that corporations, like feudal lords, control and own everything now. They (multinationals) are fiefdoms in their own right with a devoted and compliant peasantry who fall over each other to demonstrate that sacred devotion by sacrificing their own self-interest.

Like serfs, we owe everything – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – to some private, profit-making entity that will foreclose on you, dictate your lack of health care, downsize and put you out on the streets for some other serf halfway across the world, and then convince you they’re on your side and absolutely necessary (too-big-to-fail) for your present and future well-being! Well of course. I could be the next Steve Jobs, Rupert Murdoch, Bill Gates if I really worked hard enough at it because that’s they’ve told me….

What we really need is another French Revolution with all the trimmings, pun intended.

Sorry, but they’re providing neither and taking more than ever before. Your goose is a rat…
