A Thought on Corporations

Inspired by the documentary The Corporation (2003).

With the fall of totalitarian communism at the end of the 20th century, the world of 1984 now seems ominous but outdated. a fear whose potency we cannot fully recover.  The truth is that the world of corporate totalitarianism (see Jennifer Government) is not a threat but already a reality.  And we’ve already branded ourselves.

    Do corporations make us go to war and manipulate history to hold poor people down? I mean, I guess corporations can place pressure on governments to go to war (a la Why We Fight), but I don’t see how it’s like 1984, or why we need to recover the potent fear of 1984, for that matter. What we should fear, though, is Zidane’s headbutt. O RLY? YA RLY!
