Does anyone else think the power and wealth currently held by corporations has become rather extreme? I mean 51 of the world's largest economies are corporations. These are institutions who are accountable to rich stockholders instead of to the world's populations and the enviroment.
Politicians voted in through elections influence our lives less than the ceo's of multinational corporations whose responsibility is to raise profits rather than contribute good to the world. It is illegal for a ceo to change a corporation's habits in favour of the enviroment or it's employees if profits are affected and shareholders experience a loss.
This fact guarantees that corporations will continue to destroy nature and act discordant to humanity. When the natural resources which sustain our economy are diminished and we realize how fucked we all are, we only have to turn to the greed-maggot corporations to see who is at fault for destroying the planet and with it any hope of a utopian society.
