Corporatocracy killing democracy!

Corporatocracy turns its sights on last remaining pillars of democracy

by Malcolm Martin

The children are taught that the United States of America is a democracy. As the tale is told, at the founding of the nation, a government “of, by, and for the people” was established. […]

Then there is consolidation by vertical integration and its heavyweight champion is Wal-Mart, the world’s largest corporation. Wal-Mart has made a partner of the Chinese government. Working together, the partners have turned China into a vast subsistence-wage labor camp. […]

f you watch FOX, the reality is filtered through Rupert Murdoch’s Newscorp, NBC is General Electric news, CNN is Time/Warner news, ABC brings you into Disney’s world, and Viacom regularly checks the iconic CBS news department to make sure Edward R. Murrow is still dead and buried under a mountain of infotainment. That is when Viacom is not preparing America’s youth for slavery and death through MTV and B.E.T. […]

The corporations have begun forming their own Praetorian Guard. The massacre of Iraqi civilians and the patrolling of the hurricane ravaged streets of New Orleans have made Blackwater Worldwide, formerly Blackwater USA, the most famous of the rising corporate armies. […] Read More …

Facebook Bootjack Tactics: Breaching the Right to Privacy

Posted by terres on December 13, 2007

Here’s another of Facebook’s bootjack tactics employed by their affiliates (presumably in a desperate attempt to keep the fad alive for a few more days!)

The following message was sent to my colleague today:

Date: Wed, 12 Dec 2007 22:32:58 -0600
From: Name and contact email removed
Subject: [ccomy] Apologies
To: My Colleague’s email address
CC: About 700 other email addresses (whose owners’ privacy was breached) and 4 Yahoogroups

Message: If you found it strange that you were invited to join Facebook by me yesterday (and you may not even have an idea of who I am), my apologies – it was an accident. I hope it didn’t come off as unprofessional or strange.

I accidently clicked the ‘invite all contacts’ feature, and there was no taking it back. I think Facebook should revise this feature so this doesn’t happen again.

Happy Holidays.

To which My colleague promptly responded (reply to everyone):

“Facebook is a fad whose time has already expired! How many of you still play packman on an IBM PC with a 12-inch black & White screen?”

Name and contact email removed.
The perpetrator has apologized (again) to my colleague.
He has implored Moderator to remove his details because promoting FaceBook might jeopardize his future prospects with his current employers! [OK JR, will let you off this time, but “thread lightly, for you thread on your dreams!”]
