India’s triumph over corporate control is a very good story.

I disagree. Anytime there is a choice between vesting power to the government or a corporation, it’s downright silly to think that the latter will ever have your best interests at heart. That’s certainly no guarantee that the government will either, but at least there’s a chance. In an ideal world, that is the whole point of having a government. You know. That whole “by”, “of” and “for” thing. And again in an ideal world, you are able to do something about it when it fails to live up to expectations.

In this case it’s a moot point because the corporation has already usurped the power of the government entity, but corporations only exist to generate wealth for their owners. Plain and simple. Moreover, you have no control whatsoever over them, especially when they are nearly monopolistic. You don’t even have the option of a boycott.

I know that in this day and age it’s hard to feel that you have any control over the government, but even now that’s not entirely true. The corporations and the government are essentially partners in running the country now. There’s hardly any distinction anymore, and if I thought it was impossible to change that at the ballot box, I think I’d move to Canada. Let’s see what we can do about it in November 2018, and again in 2020.

That is, if elections aren’t cancelled!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
