While I voted yes, I am going on instinct here, and possibly a hope and prayer.

Massive fresh water aquifers being bought up (all over the globe), oil catastrophes (as Gulf of Mexico) poisoning our Oceans/food supply, power crazed sociopaths intentionally run worlds economic system into ground ( to impoverish all but 1%). Fukushima looming, fracking poisoning, purchasing of bio-organisms and Democracy, gmo manipulation of food supply, seed banks buried deep into earth, drug induced zombie psychology controlling % of population, capitalism raping very essence of humanity, police state, corp., gov., & citizen centrepol, bunkers 10+ stories deep into earth, social progs of food, healthcare and housing (sustaining human life) being systematically demolished, ...there is intent here, clearly all this (and more) does not propagate "Life, Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness" ... to put it mildly.

If it is not Fukushima Reactor 4 alone that triggers a global catastrophe, obviously there are a myriad of catastrophic elements breaking, just as the dawn.

This is not the 60's... "We're not in Kansas anymore"

oh, you know, now that we are no longer a democracy…I guess an initially defective nuclear reactor going hyper ballistic and ejecting a radio-active cloud into the atmosphere that rivals an asteroid impact only to leave a crater where southern Japan and a sizeable chunk of the ocean used to be…is just something we are going to have to get used to. Long live GE.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
