In this article we develop some ideas taken from “The Corporation” by Michael Moore, we thank him for his contribution.

The mass media need sponsors and financing work. The question is: who gives news that could be against those sponsors? Nobody.
The government and the media are working with the corporations to maintain power and bring them profits, holding a derisory slice of cake, and passively they accept this without understanding.

We are no more protected by anyone: we have only ourselves. But if we’re alone, we can only give information and hope that there are others like us, and then create ourselves a corporation which fight for its own profit: life, human rights, freedom of choice, expression, information.
The corporations are nothing without the community who they sell the brand or its meanings: the community is a machine that generates money for the corporations, and it is the community that must act on common principles.

What would you do if your father was the CEO of Shell corporation, and had over his consciousness the life and health of millions of Africans?
We must act on sensibility of people like corporations do from years; we must create an anti-corporation corporation. The biggest corporation of this type is the planet … we are its shareholders… And you?

We need to decide what is good for us … So why don’t we exploit the power of corporations to get it? They want to make money by following what market wants… Ok, what if you ask ecology, sustainable development?

Coca cola? Is sustainable? Is ecological? Otherwise not buy … This is what we must use to get what we ask. They just want to make more money: we want that they don’t exploit anyone anymore in the world in order to produce their products, otherwise we won’t buy. At that point they should invent something to solve the problem, or fail.
One possible revolt? ALL supermarkets that do not buy the products of Coca Cola, Monsanto, etc.. Saying “I do not stretch that logo” ..

Simply they think that we aren’t able to think.

“TRUST is a feeling of security that comes from the confidence in someone or something. It’s a personal conviction of fairness and truth and can not be enforced. If you get the confidence of someone, you have established a relationship based on interpersonal communication, on shared values and experiences. TRUST is always by reciprocity.”
The corporations want you trust them, even if they have no moral and therefore by their nature the don’t trust you. The question is: why should you trust them? Similarly for governments and the media.

We are in the war of advertising, marketing, sponsors, and it is a war without borders which knows no allies, everyone against everyone, towards the total destruction, global. We are seeing it now already, in the corners of the world.
On one side there are financed trafficking with the consequent struggle that comes from it, from another side poverty, from another one we can see pollution, or dictatorship. There are too many problems around the world that sooner or later all together will knock at our door, at your door.

The truth is that the economical, but especially social, system failed. It failed inside our homes, our schools, failed in our offices and in our cities.
Representatives of the citizens do not represent us any more: the system failed in the nations, in the continents. It is just a great mass bankruptcy.

Are you sure you want to be part of this bankruptcy?

In this article we develop some ideas taken from “The Corporation” by Michael Moore, we thank him for his contribution.

The corporations understood a long time ago that the manipulation of advertising is essential for their profits. “Kid is the key”: They learned to develop “consumer power” in people, or imposed choices and solutions based on their concept of morality, family, utility, freedom, respect for nature, providing consumers with products that they do not claim, basing them on concepts like fashion.
To implement this strategy, they need persons completely dissociated from each other, whose conception of theirself, their value, are only: “how many created desires can I satify?”

Life as a sponsor, life is a sponsors“: they are buying the spiritual values after they bought the materials ones; “creative minds strive to strengthen our confidence in corporations, seduce us with deceptive illusions, designed to distract and build our consent “. They reworked the fundamental concepts of human freedom, loyalty, fidelity, etc.. so we can believe that they are like us, but overall that they are the model to follow.

“Do you want to be free? Buy our cars. Do you want to prove your loyalty? Buy our diamond De Beers” … And have upset these points of view … Because if you see that car you think freedom, if you see Disney you think family and tradition, if you see De Beers you think quality and fidelity …
In this way they don’t sell a product but a mark and the meaning that they gave to that mark.
They oblige us to relate our ideas to the mark so we don’t think to a company, to a palace, but to a “man” or “woman” who warrants a value … a right, a feeling, an emotion …

They oblige us to believe that they are responsible for the progress and welfare. Are you really sure that this is the truth? We believe that they can buy people, but not ideas, feelings, emotions, values.

The solution? The corporations build their power over consumers. None of us tomorrow won’t drink a Coca-Cola (it is good, isn’t it?), but we could tell to Coca Cola, “you can show me that your product does not destroy lifes of any kind and respects the nature and the rights of people like me? If you can prove it, we’ll use your product, otherwise we’ll use that of a company that meets my requirements.”

By requiring these guarantees with determination, we can kick-start the engine of corporations: the race to capture the consumer. But to capture the consumer they must meet our demands for not to fail; they will listen us.

This is the power that we have over them: we must exploit it, or end up in a world controlled by corporations, where they’ll give meaning to love or friendship or freedom, in function of their products.

In this article we develop some ideas taken from “The Corporation” by Michael Moore, we thank him for his contribution.

The “personality” of the corporation is summarized in the following profile:

– Callous unconcern for the feelings of others
– Incapacity to mantain enduring relationship
– Reckless disregards for the safety of others
– Deceitfulness: repeated lying and conning others for profit
– Incapacity to experience guilt
– Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviours

Since their target is to increase the capital, they do not care feelings or emotions of others. As a result, corporations are incapable of maintaining enduring relationships and shamelessly lie to others while making money.

Their activities cause serious damage to people who work for them, their consumers (including their shareholders) and the nature: however they are unable to feel remorse for this and tend to hide their atrocities buying silence with money, it costs less to corrupt instead to adapt to the laws.

The diagnosis is clear and you can get it from any book of psychiatry: the corporations have the same personality of a psychopath. Unbelievable!
