Overview

Our leaders have put themselves-along with the people they represent-under the control of unelected leaders of industry and directors of modern megacorporations. An unhealthy nexus, inimical to the tenets of true democracy, has been developed between our government and the leaders of the corporate world and it's turning democracy into plutocracy. Other critics see today's government as a form of fascism. Why? Because when the interests of state and industry merge as they do today-and when circumstances (9/11) have created an environment in which strong nationalism is galvanized-we have a breeding ground for fascism. A truly democratic government creates the political, economic, and cultural conditions necessary for people to reach their full potential as human beings. What we have, instead, is a government that is a "captive" of corporate entities, pandering to corporate greed and dismissive of the well-being of people and their environment.
