Who do you blame for corruption? The corporations, banksters and union goons who are buying our government officials? Or the government hack who is accepting the bribe?
Most in this forum will blame the first two. I emphatically blame all.
The difference is: (warning, repeat post) The goverment can kick down your door and storm your house. The government can listen in to your phone calls and monitor your email. The government can take your money at any rate they choose and you are powerless to stop them. The government can spend all of your money on lavish trips for themselves and you are stuck with the tab.The government can drag you out of your car and taze you. The government can sieze your property and give it to the highest bidder. And they do.
That said, we love to blame "The Corporations" but we rarely mention them by name. So lets try some names to go with the crimes.
1) What crimes has Apple commited and how should they be punished?
2) What crimes has Disney commited and how should they be punished?
3) What crimes has your company commited and how should you be punished?
Corporations have no power over me. If the richest CEO in the world tries to give me an order, I will give him the finger and tell him to get the hell of of my lawn. And if he does not, I will toss his ass off.
