If Corporations Ran the World

Republicans keep telling us the world would be better if government stopped trying to run things. They want the corporations to run things instead. I don’t think this is such a hot idea. Why? No matter how badly the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Monsanto behaves, even if he directs his company to repeatedly break the law, there is no way to fire him. Have you ever tried to get service from Microsoft? They are worse than the government! Big business has all the disadvantages of big government plus the lack of accountability. As an employee, you are in the same rôle as medieval serf. There is no democracy. You do what you boss tells you or he fires you. We all know exactly how unregulated companies behave since we watched the investment houses melt down the US economy. We watched how US health insurance companies gave Americans care worse that Cuba and charged three times the going international rate. They gouge and screw. Why would anyone claim to |want more of this unless they were paid to lie, the way Republican politicians are.
