Personally, I recently started boycotting WalMart due to the predatory Capitalism they represent. I farm and we've all witnessed the negative effect that large scale corporate Agri-bisiness, and the predatory Capitalism they practice, have done to our smaller communities over the last 50 years. In and by itself, I am not anti-Capitalist. However, Capitalists and managers of large corporations have more than just a responsibility toward their shareholders and consumers, they also must respect labor, adhere to ethical business practices, and practice sustainable economics.

In the early days of our Republic communities could and would revoke a charter of a corporation when that corporation was seen as a detriment to the common good of the community. Unfortunately, since the advent of corporate personhood in 1886, corporations have gradually become so powerful that they are very hard to reign in. (a great essay on this subject can be found at http://www.iiipublishing.com/afd/Coperson.htm )

As more and more people educate themselves about the history of corporations, and as the effects of their corruption becomes more and more apparant, and as the social safety net continues to erode, I think we'll soon see a huge backlash against irresponsible multi-national corporations such as WalMart. I might add that the most corrupt private corporation is the Federal Reserve. Nationalizing the Federal Reserve would do far more for our economy than a multitude of economic stimulus packages. Please visit http://www.monetary.org to learn more on this topic.

It's time to act more like our forefathers and start taking back our country from the radical moneyed corporations by replacing the politicians that they have co-opted.

Below is a couple of quotes from Abe Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson concerning corporations:
Abe Lincoln's letter to Col. William F. Elkin Nov. 21, 1964 Reference: The Lincoln Encyclopedia Archer Shaw. "Yes; we may congratulate ourselves that this cruel war is nearing its close. It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood. The best blood of the flower of American youth has been freely offered upon our country's altar that the Nation might live. It has been, indeed a trying hour for the Republic; but I see in the future a crises approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war."

Thomas Jefferson to George Logan 1816.
"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country."

And a contemporary quote from David Korton.
"The corporation is not a person and it does not live. It is a lifeless bundle of legally protected financial rights and relationships brilliantly designed to serve money and its imperatives. It is money that flows in its veins, not blood. The corporation has neither soul nor conscience".

Thanks, Matt

WALMART WORLD


I want to live in a corporate world.
I want to live in a Wal Mart world,
With a Burger King franchise on every street,
Where Continental Grain control sugar and wheat,
And bring joy to the masses with Honey Buns, Ho Hos, and Cocoa Puff treats,
I want to live in a corporate world
I want to live in a Wal Mart world,
El taco grande and quarter pounder with cheese,
With curly fries and a Coca Cola please:

I want to live in a corporate world,
I want to live in a Wal Mart world,
With corporate logos on every lapel,
With discount merchandise and a half price sale,
And where profit sharing Commies are sent straight to jail,
I want to live in a corporate world,
I want to live in a Wal Mart world,
Tax shelters and investment schemes,
Corporate mergers and material dreams:

I want to live in a corporate world,
I want to live in a Wal Mart world,
Where I travel to the East not to see the Tah Majal,
Where I bypass Nepal and China's Great Wall,
But I stop at the New Dehli mall to purchase my piece of Shangrila,
I want to live in a corporate world,
I want to live in a Wal Mart world,
El taco grande and a quarter pounder and cheese,
With curly fries and a Coca Cola please:

I want to live in a corporate world,
I want to live in a Wal Mart world,
Where market share cannibals obsessed to be the best,
Exploit desperation to have money to invest,
To pay-off politicians to support their predatory quest,
Tax shelters and investment schemes,
Corporate mergers and material dreams.


ECONOMIES OF SCALE


Down on the farm they're spinning their wheels,
Talkin' to their bankers making a deal,
Loan me more money and I can rebound,
I'll expand my acres and we'll turn it around:

Then there's Wall Street sellin' futures in the common good,
As they take down wages in our neighborhood,
Down on Main Street they know they can't win the war,
While shoppers shop away their jobs at the Wal-Mart store:

Economies of scale rule the day,
Orwellian efficiency will pave the way,
For eunuchs to toil because they must,
Serve Big Brother or turn to dust,
No time to pause no time to protest,
For the taxman cometh and taketh the rest,
Hurry to wake hurry to sleep,
Unable to smile unable to weep,
Let's go to work because we must,
Serve Big Brother or turn to dust:

Steel buildings and assembly lines monotony's child,
Chain stores and double wides monopolies gone wild,
Currency casinos a conspirator's game,
Capitalism strengths have turned to shame:

The bottom line is as far as they can see,
As they send their factories overseas,
How rich can you get exploiting the poor,
When you're knock knock knockin' on heaven's door:

Economies of scale rule the day,
Orwellian efficiency will pave the way,
For eunuchs to toil because they must,
Serve Big Brother or turn to dust,
No time to pause no time to protest,
For the taxman cometh and taketh the rest,
Hurry to wake hurry to sleep,
Unable to smile unable to weep,
Let's go to work because we must,
Serve Big Brother or turn to dust.
