  1. Not to wonder, since it is now a barely-veiled plutocracy…

    Plato records Socrates as having little good to say for that system of government in Republic… although he held “democracy” to be the lowest form of government?

    (LOL/0 = ERROR)

    … although characterizing our system of government as a “plutocracy” may be misleading, given the destructive tendencies unleashed through the novelty of the powers now accorded The Corporation, an altogether inhuman agency… in which the psychopathic pursuit of “profit” has been enshrined as the only motivating value?

  2. If corporations are people, then they are people who by law are forced to be perfect Randians, interested and motivated solely by personal short-term gain. The American Elites have decided to elect a new American people, and corporations are their candidate for our replacement.
