We Are All Hostages Of Corporate Profits | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


We Are All Hostages Of Corporate Profits

We're in the endgame of financialization and globalization, and it won't be pretty for all the hostages of corporate profits.

Though you won't read about it in the mainstream corporate media, the nation is now hostage to outsized corporate profits.

The economy and society at large are now totally dependent on soaring corporate profits and the speculative bubbles they fuel, and this renders us all hostages: "Make a move to limit corporate profits or speculative bubbles, and your pension fund gets a bullet in the head."

Not just pension funds, of course; tax revenues will also be taken out and shotas most of the state and federal income taxes are paid by high-earners and those skimming capital gains from stock options and stock-based compensation packages.

Political and financial authorities have caved in to the implicit threat, lest their share of the corporate swag be tossed in the ditch. To appease public anger, various bureaucratic thickets have been created, but as you can easily see, corporate profits have not been affected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No longer does "justice" prevail in the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America; it's "Just Us!" for the one percenters.
