Corporations – Not The Government, Are What’s Boss!!!

January 12th, 2014 by Michael Tabor

How interesting, mind – boggling, and quite frankly bizarre is the FACT that most people concern themselves with politicscorporate1corporate2corpoate3 and which political party one is affiliated with rather than really getting down to the very root of who (or what) is really in charge of matters and ultimately who is in fact controlling the world. Secondly, what I find fascinating is that though corporations are of course comprised of people, the reality is that Microsoft, Apple, IBM, and Google don’t really exist in the truest sense of the word.

When I was in college, I was lectured to by a very astute professor who stated that the most powerful corporations run itself and noboby is irreplaceable; yes, certainly you need personnel and brilliant people, but the aforementioned corporate entities have prodigiously deep pockets and can certainly attract the best and the brightest.
Any average person can figure this out if you just sit and think about it: Corporations employ lobbies, lobbies in turn exert their profound influence on politicians and lawmakers, and then the politicians ultimately con you into voting for him or her. Along this road and path there are a lot of favors and backroom deals that will of course be reciprocated.
So WhaDaYaThink ? What do you think ? Incidentally, corporations care about only two things which is 1. to first survive and then 2. grow as big as it can possibly get at all costs and without concern or care for you or the planet (extracting fossil fuels, dumping toxic wastes into our waters, fracking, etc.) & the fuel which turns the corporation into a finely – tuned, well – oiled machine is – MONEY and lots of it. $$$ doesn’t talk, it screams.

    Just realize that the corporation, Coca – Cola, has been around for a longer period of time than anyone alive today.

  2. Michael Tabor Says:

    Joe Rogan said something interesting: Corporations like $$$ more than they like people !!!

    As Lincoln said: for the people, by the people, of the people …. for/by/of was not meant for an abstract concept

    If you don’t like corporate america, then stop using it’s products. Don’t buy an iPhone. Don’t use Google Search and take Microsoft’s operating system out of your computer. While your at it, stop watching NetFlix movies, disconnect your cable TV and get rid of your car. And when you get sick, don’t take any medication, chances are it came from a big evil pharmaceutical company.

    Good comment – SOW !!! However, I never said anything about abolishing corporations nor did I suggest that corporate entities are evil incarnate and are incapable of producing any good in the world. I merely threw up a few words about what a corporation is and how it can, perhaps get out of control. Pros & cons – another blog.

    Also, SOW – I think it’s monumentally important that we take into consideration that computers are just 0’s and 1’s/black & white/Yes’s & no’s & ideas & concepts like corporations are just that & have no feelings and emotions i.e. a sociopathic, psychopathic profit – machine. I think it’s great that we, human beings can create an abstract concept which can create an unfathomable amount of wealth and resources to do positive things, however, just be careful ……Dr. Frankenstein.

    It’s all a catch – 22. If we didn’t have corporations, we wouldn’t be able to raise the funds and attract the necessary talent needed to find a cure for Hepatitis – C. However, in order for a corporation to recoup its investment & ultimately make a profit (which is all the invisible – non-existent – entity cares about i.e. bottom line !!!) it has to charge an exorbitant amount of $$$ (I can give you the specifics e.g. drug names, clinical trial costs,etc. but I don’t want to bore u) only wealthy folks can afford the treatment

    Governments fail because they get too big (and social) and dictate how you live your life. Corporations dont have the power to do this. I’m sorry Mike Coca Cola doesn’t tell me to pay taxes. Get healthcare or pay a fine. Pay for social programs I don’t agree with. Our governments one major job is to protect us, not become a huge burden on us. I agree with corporate lobbying, but once again its our government that accepts it. They dont have too. Theres more corruption in government than in corporate America.

  9. Rick Says:

    AND THIS IS THE BIGGEST LINE OF BS FROM YOU MIKE EVER. NOT A VERY SMART STATEMENT.

    2. grow as big as it can possibly get at all costs and without concern or care for you or the planet (extracting fossil fuels, dumping toxic wastes into our waters, fracking, etc.) & the fuel which turns the corporation into a finely – tuned, well – oiled machine is – MONEY and lots of it. $$$ doesn’t talk, it screams

    SAYING ALL LARGE CORPORATIONS THINK LIKE THIS IS PLAIN STUPID.

    Hey Rick,

    I understand what you’re saying if you’re a small businessman but I’m talking about gargantuan abstract machines that seemingly have a life of its own i.e HAL from the classic Stanley Kubrick film -“2001 – A Space Odyssey”

    We’re still in the Sci.Fi. area, but machines will, in my opinion, someday – THINK – very soon !!!

  11. Michael Tabor Says:

    One other thing Rick, what is the deal w/ the GOP hating government ??? Scores of people have died for the people, by the people, of the people …. what would we do w/o government ??? Anarchy ?? Just think, no gov. = a country utterly defenceless without an army, navy and air force and also get rid of the police and do away with public infrastructure such as roads, trash collection and street lighting, the cuts are going to have to be made in public services that disproportionately affect the poor, since higher earners usually procure healthcare, pensions and education privately.
