I can see how age has made me less niave. When it happened, I had expected Buh to just allow a recount, so that all the votes could be included. I was absolutely shocked when he wanted the results to stay the same, even though their had clearly been problems with the voting system.
Now, 13 years later I would not expect a politician to do the ethical and honest thing.

Yes yes. No public education and no public safety net are terrible freedoms. Let's just let people be poor and stupid.

Since corporations are people they can have all the power and freedom they want and I'd bet they would be free to treat their employees...well...badly since there will be little, if any governmental regulation or protection.

Open borders wouldn't be an issue because nobody would want to come to such a country - of course keeping people IN such a country might be an issue.

These are not particularly great scenarios if you are an actual living human person. Corporation people however will make out like bandits.

I think if you check the extreme right wing in the USA you will see many similarities. You may not consider yourself a "right-winger" but frankly, if it walks like a duck and it talks like a duck, it's probably a duck.

Actually, no they are not, they are run and supported by people, but the actual "corporation" is a status label dictated by regulations that allow them to speak for all those employed within it, sort of like unions only bigger. Now, many corporations do not abuse this power, but most still do, like Disney. Some corporations are even owned by the employees within them, a good idea all around.

The same problems that we see in unions are seen in most corporations, an elite few acting on behalf of the majority within the organization, often ignoring the majority's needs and desires. It's regulation that makes all this possible.
