This is a little hypothetical scenario I came up with a few years ago to illustrate why I believe we are already living in the world Sci-Fi writers warned us about.
Night of the Living Dead, The Terminator, You name it…
(I always tell people "The Matrix" is the greatest Documentary ever made).
A mega oil company is polluting a country with their drilling and people's children are getting sick & dying. The people protest & death squads are sent in to silence them & keep the oil money flowing.
The CEO of this company has a sudden spiritual awakening & realizes the company is doing wrong. He vows to change things & begin doing business in a responsible manner.
The headline in the paper the next day is Not:
"Oil Co CEO vows to change years of oppressive policy"
The Headline simply reads:
"New CEO tapped to head oil company"
If the CEO of a company can’t change that company’s policies, who can?
I use this example to demonstrate just how uncontrollable our little corporate entity creations have become.
We live in a sci-fi world populated by deadly, out-of-control, monsters right NOW! (and have been for generations).
Our laws are so insanely structured that “doing the right thing” (with regard to protecting life on our planet) could subject you to legal penalties if it interferes with shareholders profits…
Here’s an idea for the poster. Maybe an artist could make up some good graphics..?
We created it.
Now it’s unstoppable & out of control.
And it’s destroying our world!
Sadly, You don’t need to go to a theater, just look outside.
The corps may be alive, but they’re NOT People.
