We The Corporations by Rob-Caswell We The Corporations by Rob-Caswell
The concept of "Corporatocracy" is that corporations - to a significant extent - have massive power over governments, including those governments nominally elected by the people, and that they exercise such power via corporate monopolies and mergers and by their enormous, concentrated economic power which, by recent economic crises, allows them the luxury of saying "we are too big to fail" and by legal in-the-open mechanisms (lobbyists, campaign contributions to office holders and candidates, threats to leave the state or country for another with less oversight and more subsidies, etc.).

This is awesome in its simplicity! I'd buy the print and hang it up, but I fear that people might not understand it... :(

Shades of Robocop! It might or is happening now, but I think it won't last for very long. Remember, Revolution (missed) is only one meal away.

It is now happening. There's absolutely no question about that. We're living (in the US) in a Plutocracy. And as long as people remain fed and distracted, we'll stay on that course.

Thanks. I was trying to sum up something a bit complex with one simple graphic.
