I’m with you, Pastor! Down with evil corporations! Most corporations, of course, aren’t evil. But, as to those that are evil, down with them!
Among the evil one are those that only partially believe in capitalism. They believe in privatizing their profits, but in socializing their losses. Their profits they keep; but the taxpayers bail them out and pay for their losses. That’s evil, for sure.
Among the evil ones, too, are those for whom there is no such thing as a bad or immorral war, for there are virtually unlimited profits to be made in the death industry. War is profitable; peace is costly.
Among the evil ones are those who advocate and pursue government “of the corporations, for the corporations, and by the corporations”, and who have turned Washington, D.C. into “corporate-occupied territory”, there buying off the “people’s represntatives” of both political parties by funding re-election campaigns in return for legislation and regulation in their favor and to their liking. Among them are the formerly patriotic American but now international corporations who have off-shored millions of middle class American jobs to foreign lands, all in pursuit of even greater profits.
For sure, most corporations are just fine. But, down with the evil ones!
What is I find interesting is the overlap between many of the issues that those in the Tea Party have with those protesting recently. For example, both are against the large bailout of the financial service industry that as part of TARP.
This is so true! Such an interesting angle on this issue.
Is there any way I can contact you and get more of your opinion on this.
I’m a reporter for the Christian Post.
Yeah! Down with corporations! Wait, isn’t CPH a corporation?????
Corporations are people, too. Let’s not hurt their feelings.
Douglas Rushkoff provided an excellent leaping off point on this exact aspect of the movement: “Yes, as so many journalists seem obligated to point out, kids are criticizing corporate America while tweeting through their iPhones. The simplistic critique is that if someone is upset about corporate excess, he is supposed to abandon all connection with any corporate product. Of course, the more nuanced approach to such tradeoffs would be to seek balance rather than ultimatums. Yes, there are things big corporations might do very well, like making iPhones. There are other things big corporations may not do so well, like structure mortgage derivatives. Might we be able to use corporations for what works, and get them out of doing what doesn’t?”

Apparently somebody lacks both a sense of the ironic, and a basic grasp of spelling and keyboarding.
Not to mention the petroleum products used to pave the streets that the rent-a-mob gathered upon for their premediated photo op, er… spontaneous expression of collective disillusionment.
