If you ask people, “Are you gullible?”, the automatic answer is, “No, I don’t think so.”. Given enough economic and social pressure, people do agree to the strangest things. Once a generation agrees to be a sub – contractor for an invading private agenda, rather than keeping independence and free will, it’s all downhill for subsequent generations. That is the history of what was once America. That independence and creative resilience is gone. Each generation in the progress of Reconstruction is loaded on the Federal cattle car. Offer people prosperity. Offer them power and influence within the corporate structure. Tell them “It’s for the children”. Tell them anything. Bring them tales of corporate conquest and parade military heroes in front of them. For generations, people have called corporate tyranny a good thing. They just follow orders, believing that leaders do right in the world. They profit from trafficking in people and body parts, thinking they are serving the greater good. Where is the conscience that quietly and persistently reminds us that our economy grows on the people that have been plowed under as corporate fertilizer?
Barbed wire, overt human harvesting, internment and labor camps, the visual trappings of government gone bad, are bad public relations. Today, Americorps and the Peace Corps have replaced the Hitler Youth. yes, they will be trained to be good little Corporatists. Conquest in the name of Public Service is now the accepted definition of Humanitarianism. That is the way that Fascism presents itself, as the benefactor of humanity. the promise of a glorious future always ends in smoking ruins and piles of dead bodies. It is that dark side of human nature, that lust for power, hard at work seeking dominance over other human beings. We see it in the efforts to create “constituencies” and in “development projects”. A constituent is legal property. In these efforts, nations are drawn into web of debt and corporate subjugation. Billions of people suffer, while corporations manage the wealth they stole from them. That is why some of the wealthiest people in the world gave it all away, before they died. They wanted to get the guilt of all of that dirty money washed from their hands, before they died. Late may be better than never, but that doesn’t restore the lives that were destroyed. There will be a just accounting for the lives sacrificed for the gain of Corporatism.
