Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

in a nutshell...

So let's have a bit of a look at what's happening, eh?

We're seeing the corporatisation of:
Schools and Universities (those not controlled by religions): This is leading to the corporatisation of thought, philosopy, history and knowledge. i.e. the corporatisation of "truth".

Politics: The Corporation now owns "the economy" and the politicians are mere slaves to "the economy". Ergo, The Corporation owns the politicians. This was flagged a while ago when Clinton made that now-famous statement "it's the economy, stupid"
Forget Democracy, it's already a Corpocracy, by which I mean - [corpo(rate) +cracy (rule of)]

Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" is no longer just a quaint novel. It's what's actually happening right friggin' now.

A viable political opposition? There is none for which a sufficiently large number of people will vote.

In Australia, Labor, the Fabian Society, The Evatt Foundation, i.e. the intellectuals and academics "informing" these august bodies, are all hyocrites because they have sold out to GobalCorp's agenda via their subservience to "the economy".

Ditto the Democrats in America.

In Britain, New Labour already owns the people and their only alternative is the Tories. Imagine that...

GlobalCorp IS the government now, and it won't tolerate socialistic or communistic ideals. Welfare structures are being demolished. Governments who are not willing to be compliant instruments of GobalCorp, will not be tolerated.

"Threat to the security of the nation" is newspeak for "threat to the economy" which itself is newspeak for "threat to the security of GobalCorp."

"In the interests of the nation" is newspeak for "in the interests of the economy" which of course translates as "in the interests of GobalCorp."

It will therefore soon be deemed be against the "nation's interest", and in fact it will be deemed to be "a threat to the security of the nation" to expound upon ideas which threaten or expose GlobalCorp's ever-tightening grip on global power.

And Globalcorp already has its own armies i.e. Sandline, Blackwater, et al. But it also owns the government military, security and intelligence services by default. These agencies are ruled by governments which are firmly in the grip of Globalcorp's power via the WTO, the World Bank, the IMF, etc. i.e. ruled by GlobalCorp.

Anti-monopoly laws are dead. Eventually it will all morph into one megacorporation - and for want of a better name I've called it GlobalCorp, although how long that name will be allowed to exist un-trademarked is a moot point.

Be nice to your managers... very nice...

Great post, Gez. I am reminded of Brave New World about 5 times a day at the moment. Community, Identity, Stability. Ending is better than mending. Arghhh.

Yes, well done. I despise the whole megacorporation idea. I like the unique-ness of small businesses. I like having the owner/workers know who I am and care about making a good impression.

On the other hand, I'm guilty of shopping at some large corporate retail stores out of convenience...

Hypocrisy, party of one?

Thanks guys.

Check out parecon if you're not already familiar with their economic model.

Jenni, we're all guilty of supporting GlobalCorp via our consumerised, glitzified, bling-bling lifeslyle. Clinton should have said "it's the lifestyle, stupid". But can you imagine him, or for that matter, you and me, actually inventing (reverting to) a lifestyle which treads so lightly as to leave only one ecological footprint?

There's no megabucks in that! That would be the end of the economy as we know it... I'm just a heretic. And a hypocritical one at that...
