Trade treaties, mega-corporations, and worldwide socialism

Trade treaties, mega-corporations, and worldwide socialism

by Jon Rappoport

June 13, 2015

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)

“The ever-emerging popular image of socialism: a humane government colossus controls the means of production for the benefit of the people; and share-the-wealth at all levels of society comes alive. This is political theory for children in a condition of arrested development—for example, college students and Hollywood actors who long for lunch at the White House.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

I use the loaded word “socialism” in the headline, because it’s important to understand that Globalism is a form of socialism.

That may not sit well with some people, because they believe in the socialism team and they think that team is against Globalism. Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s about time they woke up.

Globalism was born out of the triumphs of cutthroat capitalists like Rockefeller, and out of the triumphs of international bankers like Rothschild and Warburg. These men made a decision quite natural for them: “By hook and by crook I’ve acquired my fortune; now I want a monopoly; I want to cut out the competition; I want empire; therefore, I have to control governments; I want to make governments more powerful, so by controlling them I control society.”

What better way to make governments more powerful than by forming a long-term (criminal) collaboration with mega-corporations, including major banks?

Governments plus giant corporations. Does that equal socialism?

You can quibble and say the corporations are really in charge and therefore this arrangement isn’t socialism. Call it oligarchy. Call it runaway capitalism or the corporate state.

The collaboration among governments, mega-corporations, and bankers is the triangle. It’s the engine of control. It grossly limits freedom. It claims, through propaganda, that its “government wing” is for the people. That’s utter nonsense, of course.

Today’s socialists believe government is the answer to the control of society by big money and big greed. That’s a delusion. The governments are on the side of big money.

Socialists also like to say that governments are weak sisters in the pocket of the corporations, and therefore the governments must become stronger. Another dangerous fantasy.

The last time I looked at America, for example, the government had an extensive military, a dizzying number of spying agencies, and a gigantic Justice Department that could make arrests and put criminals on trial. If that’s weak, what’s strong?

Who are the major money men of Wall Street the US government has thrown in prison? Who are the mega-corporate thugs the government has sent away for life terms?

The government is firmly in bed with the corporations. Committed. Purposefully.

All the trade treaties—GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, the TPP, etc.—are basically instruments of the government-corporate collaboration. They strengthen the corporations and they strengthen the de facto global management system, which is government on a far larger scale.

Securing monopoly requires controlling governments and making those governments more and more repressive, in order to put populations under control.

It makes perfect sense, if you’re a billionaire/ trillionaire sociopath.

When I say “Globalists controlling governments,” I’m talking about a partnership, and if one partner, equipped with armies, spies, and prosecutors, surrenders to the other partner, that’s a form of extreme cowardice.

Just one example: the current Globalist TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) negotiation is secret, as are the details of the treaty. But any legislator in any of the 12 member nations could step out of the shadows and communicate everything he knows about what’s in the treaty…if he wanted to.

In the US, a senator might, at the extreme, spend a night in jail for violating Executive Branch regulations on classified data.

He would also spark a much needed Constitutional crisis, and he would become a popular hero.

But no; so far, no US Senator or Congressman has dared to spill all the beans.

Voluntary surrender of power.

Of course, when government surrenders its powers long enough (since roughly 1913 in the US), and when Globalists/Socialists are brought into one key government position after another, up to and including the Presidency, the corruption runs very, very deep.

Does this sound like a benign State that wants to do everything it can to help the people?

Does this sound like “heraldic Socialism” determined to build a peaceful and fair society?

Right now, President Obama is running around in a panic, trying to put together enough Congressional votes to pass the TPP. Does that sound like a man who wants to rescue the American people from the mega-corporations?

The so-called classic definition of socialism: government controls the means of production.

Just change that a bit: government, in criminal collaboration with mega-corporations, controls the means of production.

Split hairs if you want to; but it’s a distinction without a difference.

George Bush the Elder (Globalist), who briefly served as the director of the CIA and a director of the Council on Foreign Relations (Rockefeller/Globalist powerhouse), ran for a second term in the White House against neophyte Bill Clinton (Globalist). Under ordinary circumstances, there was no way Bush could have lost. But it was Globalist vs. Globalist. A distinction without a difference.

There are still hope-and-change people out there who wonder how their man, Obama, could be supporting Monsanto. They haven’t gotten the memo yet. Obama is a Globalist. Monsanto is a mega-corporation. GMO crops? Roundup? The health dangers of GMOs and pesticides? Irrelevant.

None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen, 1971:

“…most of us believe socialism is what the socialists want us to believe it is—a share-the wealth program… Here in the reality of socialism you have a tiny oligarchial clique at the top, usually numbering no more than three percent of the total population, controlling the total wealth, total production and the very lives of the other ninety-seven percent.

“…If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.”

The Matrix Revealed

In America, untold numbers of young college students are being conscripted into the illusion of government-as-savior. Matriculating on the basis of government student loans, having to go deep into debt to pay back those loans, these young people are already wards of the State. For them, the only question is: how can they minimize the interest on the loans? Otherwise, they see government and its support of politically correct behavior and speech as conditioning mechanisms leading to “a better world.” This is Pathetic Mind Control 101.

As part of this political correctness, the students are taught to rail against big corporations, never realizing their adored Mommy-Daddy Government is an active partner in crime with the corporations.

“Reform government.” “Make government better.” Make government more responsive to the people.” This is like hoping to stage a conciliatory dialogue with a T-Rex in Jurassic Park.

Socialism—the nightmare it represents—is the premier vehicle for those super-rich men who have limitless political goals that add up to population control.

    Jon, I disagree that we need to call this Socialism’s fault. We could just as easily blame it on Fascism or its economic vehicle, Syndicalism. You could also call it institutionalism. Institutions mostly all start out with a good idea, a well-meaning mission, but devolves after several years or so into something that is desperate for continued existence and aggrandizement of power which soon will become more important than its initial mission.

    Some of us are brought up in households with parents that trust government and do not trust business/capitalism; others are brought up in households that believe the opposite. Capitalism is not compassionate or always constructive and is no guarantee of freedom. Corporations serve their shareholders; that’s it, and they only create safer products, work conditions, and allow workers time off because of unions and publicly-demanded safety laws.

    Governments have also become corporations which are beholden to business corporations and seem to also be serving those shareholders.

    Some believe that the bankers created both communism/socialism and fascism/syndicalism to kill off the Russian Czar’s family for defying them and coming to the aid of the Americans in the American Revolution, War of 1812 and Civil War, and to create ripe opportunities for wars from which they could profit. Albert Pike was reputedly charged with coming up with the structure for this. We fall into traps of Democrat vs. Republican, Conservative vs. Liberal, Capitalist vs. Socialist.

    We also can’t pidgeon hole everybody. Bernie Sanders, in my opinion, has shown more integrity as a Socialist (he could be more accurately termed a European-style social democrat in my view) and willingness to stand up to power than Neo-Liberal & corporatist, Hillary Clinton. I disagree with him on the narrow-minded view of climate change as it is to the exclusion of chemtrails/HAARP as a contributor, but at the same time I agree that corporations should limit the levels of nasty emissions-to me that’s common sense. But carbon taxes to benefit a few rich people like Al Gore is wrong-headed to me.

    We would do well to stop using labels so much and look at actions and likely outcomes. TPP, internet freedom & surveillance have brought together a lot of different political people from different political stripes. They are looking past the labels and getting to the heart of the issues. This transpartisanship, Jon, is what we need because it is a natural outgrowth of the very awakening from the matrix that you speak of.

    In any case, another great article as usual.

    • procomptor says:

      Hi Robert, wow you missed the part about the bankers being Socialized communist who started out as Khazarian citizens to eventually form the Khazarian Mafia after they fled to Europe and infiltrated the Jewish population. And the part about creating wars is well established as well with helping to make the extermination of most naturally born Jews a reality during WWII.

      As for the TPP which just took a beating along with Big Corporations number one man Obama how can you support anything or anyone that opposes transparency and still call yourself awakened? You are aware that the content of the TPP is hidden from Americans behind locked doors at the White House? Have you even read about Agenda 21 on the UN website and then understand why the UN has thousands of boots on the ground along side Jade Helm 15 in Texas? This plan has been in place for some time just waiting for the catalyst to ignite it. Corporation control over our government through the TPP will allow for the implementation of Agenda 21 and finally complete world control by one entity ruled ultimately by the 1% Elite or Illuminati.

      No Robert, Jon has been and still is right on the money with his insight on current affair events concerning our Federal Government and their corrupt programs including vaccinations, death by Monsanto’s GMO’s and vegetation poison? I am a 25 year veteran of computer engineering who has been fighting the NSA’s overreach of authority used in stealing my customers data for over 6 years now. I know viruses-malware and internet securities fairly well as I own a small computer business helping civilians, police officers and businesses cope with PC corruption. This is made much worse by weakened back door security on many products done intentionally from NSA and/or government threats aimed directly at these individual companies.

      Fear is a powerful tool as anyone in the awakened group knows. This is why we were asked to STAND together in solidarity so as to peaceably bring about change through community awareness and a commitment to work hard towards eliminating government overreach. Our forefathers established the Constitution to keep power in the hands of the American people and tight control over our elected officials. In particular it is suppose to balance our governments authority while safeguarding the Republics freedoms including speech, religious choice and the ability to control each branch of the government with superior individual powers over elected officials and their agencies.

      Also well known and proven is the governments commitment to serving big corporations over it’s boss (being the people who elected them) because of the big financial gain received from these corporations verses the smaller paid salaries for their positions paid by Americans. I am sure you can throw in X amount of collusion, bribery, personal threats and just plain immoral behavior made possible by the 1% who own the corporations and most of the worlds wealth as well. In order for the 99% to gain back the power belonging to them ordained by God and promised within our Constitution we must first neutralize the thieves, liars and morally corrupt individuals that are the 1% and who control all big business. A great start would be not only requiring all agencies to comply with transparency but also the elimination of certain non-functioning or corrupt groups. This should include the entire stock market structure, IRS, NSA and many others to be replaced by new structured groups and agencies restructured with the American people and Mother Earth’s best interest coming first finally as it was intended by God and our forefathers.

      “This transpartisanship, Jon, is what we need because it is a natural outgrowth of the very awakening from the matrix that you speak of.”

      You must be kidding, right? Or maybe, I did not understand what you have written. So for now, I will take it as a joke.

      • ozziethinker says:

        I think Robert was probably referring to “commerce enablement” benefiting humanity, which, in effect, parrots some of Jon’s muted sentiment.

        Personally, I take your view, FQ, HOW DARE THEY [TRY TO] CONTROL MY DESTINY? I am a free man. Nevertheless, at some point, there has to be a new means for lateral cooperation of human beings that transcends the whims of the self-serving few; where people can take ownership of individual destinies without being marginalised or victimised by competition.

    • middleway says:

      Robert brings up a key point whose implications people find difficult to comprehend: Nations, states, counties and cities are all corporations. As this corporate reality has been slowly morphed into place over the past one-hundred years, a simple question must be asked, “Who do you suppose these governmental corporations serve and represent,… people or other corporations?” What these trade treaties will nullify, once and for all, are the last standing remnants of national identity, which would include sovereignty and law. Globalization / One World.

  2. middleway says:

    … so, we’re all headed back to where we started; a manageable number of obedient communitarian slaves to support the earthly-gods.

    • procomptor says:

      Good way of putting the end game in its place, Middleway. This game of control has been played over and over since the beginning of recorded history. Now that we are going through another quantum leap in evolution where war will not be tolerated the 1% controllers of these corporations must find a cleaner or more appropriate way of controlling the masses with more profit and power under their God Lucifer.

      With corporations ruling all governments (the text within the TPP proves this leading into the UN’s agenda 21) it is as Neil Young sings in his album “Rockin in the free world”; We got a kinder gentler machine gun hand. He wrote this during the Bush administration and it is even better suited for Obama’s! Lets hope their miscalculation on the power of the internet will allow enough time for most to wake up and STAND together and say “No more”! Behold “The great Awakening” we incredibly out number those that would kill 90% of the worlds population so keep waking up those sleeping in front of the 6 o’clock news\lies. The winds of change are blowing in more truth every day and the Illuminati don’t have many lies to hide behind left…..mike

  3. ozziethinker says:

    There is another way of looking at this, Jon.

    Fortunately, I have compiled a lengthy post on my other blog


    “Some readers may find this heavy going, but unfortunately deep secrets are never easy to convey. Traditional thinking framed by our modern system of science might be convenient to blame, but institutions measure and form opinions on what they see in the way they see it. Basis for humans, in general, gravitates around truths (or lies dressed as truths) supported by cast iron “material” data sets that mirror and theoretically validate perceptions. These stereotypical projections are loosely called reality, but many only “work” in our reality band. Change the frequency and brave new worlds await us.”


  4. procomptor says:

    Jon your story here is more reality than most can handle. When the 3% become the 1% and the 97% become the 99% then it is very near time for the concept of Agenda 21 to become reality. This is the end game for the 1% or Illuminati that seals the deal for them and the fate of everyone else.

    This is exactly the reason I have been working with Senators and Congressmen in the hopes they will start to see the reality of how much power Big Corporations have over our governments! This is are best hope and is of course assuming that at least half of those contacted are not under Big Business influence themselves and therefor willing to at least investigate the motivation behind there constituents Anti-Constitutional efforts.

    The end game of course is the very concept Agenda 21 sets as the future of global law. And it explains the reason for one government and one religion as stated within its context. Of course with China owning most of the current manufacturing muscle and set to take over global currency we all know who the one government will be under the 1%. And as a communist country this pretty much dictates total individual control Now as for the one world religion this will be that which the 1% or Illuminati practice already which is Luciferionism as it was practiced in ancient Babylonia!

    Now certainly this is my story that I have pieced together following the 9/11 events. Also collectively put together by the thousands following the Great Awakening occurring around December 25th 2012. Strange enough since then I notice this exact story growing in popularity driven by truth given out freely by more and more folks continuing to awaken every day. There were different messages sent on awakening day according to the testimony I have received from many other awakened folks. Mine was simply a supernatural event that involved my Mom, Dad and Jesus asking me to investigate anomalies found on the internet. Through 2.5 years of meditation and investigation I have received visions that have all become reality and a relationship with Lord that has given me an understanding of the importance in finding unconditional forgiveness towards everyone I have ever met in exchange for unconditional Love and forgiveness the Lord holds for every man, woman and child here on Mother Earth.

    Blessings Jon and everyone and the hope that truths bright light shows us all the way home…..mike

      Complete and utter tripe…visions of Jesus. Tell me did he wear a tunica and toga picta sport. Was he speaking Latin when he spoke to you. Was he the nailed or un-nailed version.
      I hope mom and dad made him feel at home, did they have him stay in the spare room…so Jesus likes the Internet.
      I never would have thought he would have had to use the Internet, I figured him more of the letter writing, carrier pigeon type. Hell if he needed to get there real fast, he would be the telepathy type. Or tell his dad.
      Maybe you could show him how to set up his own Facebook page, that cluster frack could use some religion?
      Is he addicted to candy crush like the rest of us…bastard I hate that game.
      Ya do realize it is your type of religious zealousy that has the world burning down to the granite right now procompter…do you know that. I hate to be the one to bring you bad news, but your insane. This is the crazy club. And insane is two clicks on the internet to the left.
      Now if you can detach yourself from the nasty paranoic side affect of your insanity. You could have a good time with insane. It could be a good gig. Maybe even realize that your God. You are ya know…your god of your own little space. It little now but it get bigger the more ya think about it. It gets so big that you realize Jesus is a pain in the ass.
      I mean you can’t do any worse than JC. All he did was cause two thousand years of war, suffering, torture and pedophilia…the crusades, the inquisition, Cortez and the near extinction of the Aztec. Almost five hundred years of the dark ages, and burning women on a stake, television evangelists and those stupid fucking bobble head dolls.
      You on the hand could start your own religion. Procomptorism…yeah. I like it. Sounds professional…and important too.

      • ozziethinker says:

        Here, here…and plus one brother Michael.

      • procomptor says:

        Wow you write out of hate where Jesus stands for love. You just condemned Jesus me and every other believer in God and you don’t have a clue why. No my friend it is people like you have to have an excuse for why the worlds problems are anybody’s fault but your own.

        You are so self righteous in the comfort of your own short comings that you can’t see the truth through the lies that you have not only adopted to but are quite comfortable with. I might be insulted except for the fact I am a thermal dynamics engineer and over the last 40 years have known many scholars and scientists who like me have come to know Jesus through the Holy Bible because it is a verifiable truth that comes with hope for our Children and Grandchildren.

        As believers in the Lord God we know that unconditional forgiveness opens the door to unconditional Love. We don’t hold anger to Atheists, Muslims or even the Illuminati yet all of you hold anger towards us? No I think you need to study your history better and this time get your information from scholars not the sheeple of the times. The problem of the past is the same we face today. Folks of the Lords light always fight against great odds when it comes to Satan’s dark army. We don’t lie or kill for power or personal gain by what ever means suits us. We don’t hate or conspire to belittle others in order to make us better in the eyes of others. We don’t condemn others for their beliefs because we are taught to love our neighbors.

        Now you can rattle on about how bad Lord is as I have heard the same old story for 50 some years now. However this country was founded on faith and was and will be again a leader in making this world a better place based on good moral standards and family. When you find something better that doesn’t include hate and condemnation then I suggest you grab a hold of it as it has to be better then trying to belittle others for amusement…..mike

          Have actually READ the “holy Bible”, Mike? Where was Jesus’ “love” for the innocent herd of swine he barrelled over a cliff? (Legion tale)

          Try Deuteronomy and Leviticus for the really juicy indecency.

          Go away ignorant heathen.

          “As believers in the Lord God we know that unconditional forgiveness opens the door to unconditional Love. We don’t hold anger to Atheists, Muslims or even the Illuminati yet all of you hold anger towards us?”

          So, you offer unconditional forgiveness and love to predators of humanity who orchestrate wars, who poison our bodies, manipulate our minds and bankrupt our nations? And you think that will stop them? Will unconditional forgiveness and love stop wolves and lions from hunting, too? Human predators are acting according to their nature, just like other predators. Your unconditional forgiveness and love serves them well–every predator prefers prey that will not fight back.

  5. Robert Nemtusak says:

    2 decades ago, I began to wonder about the socialist Trojan horse. I knew about Russia’s blood-soaked Bolsheviks. “Socialists.” I knew about Germany’s murderous Nazis. “National Socialists.” Two-faced mass murderers, in both cases. I do not, however, understand places like Sweden. We hear about nations who “peacefully adopted” socialism. Are there truly places where folks share the wealth? I’ve heard about Scandinavia’s “high standard of living.” I’ve heard of Fabians foisting socialism on England. “Peacefully.” I fear that, like secular humanism, corporate socialism is as bad as corporate capitalism. I don’t suppose it’s a big shocker, that the Bush Crime Family consists of ultra left Bolsheviks.

  6. roberta4949 says:

    socialism I have heard is socialize the liabilities but privitize the profits. corporations are state created entites. given limited liability so when the gov talks about wanting to form a public private partnership what they are really saying is they want to continue to do business as usual. their hatreds for corporations and corp hatred for over reaching gov is fake.

  7. brad says:

    That’s about as clear as it gets.

    And all the potential whistle blowers are either highly corrupt, highly compromised, or both.

  8. Greg O. says:

    Socialism is Globalism’s favorite son and the Globalists number one tool for advancing their agenda for control over every molecule on this planet and beyond. Forgive me if this veers a little off-topic towards the end:

  9. mangrove says:

    Excellent piece. It all really just boils down to semantics though — the socialism thing. And obviously, the word has been co-opted and so twisted and redefined (by design, of course) that nobody even knows what it means any more, even the so-called socialists.

  10. Theodore says:

    “Right now, President Obama is running around in a panic, trying to put together enough Congressional votes to pass the TPP.”

    That is, effectively, correct.


    re: House Democrats rebuff Obama on trade, delivering major defeat

    “The silver lining for Obama and his unusual Republican allies is that the balance of the trade package narrowly won support. The House voted 219 to 211 to approve fast-track, also known as trade promotion authority [TPA], which had been expected to be the most crucial vote.

    “On that vote, 219 to 211, 28 Democrats joined 191 Republicans in supporting the president.

    “But because House leaders split the bill into several pieces (*), approval of the worker assistance program — known as trade adjustment assistance, or TAA — is needed to advance fast-track.”


    (1) (*) Why say ‘several’ pieces? Why not just say ‘two’ pieces (TPA and TAA)? (2) So, TPA _has_ already passed — but, just can not go, yet, to the president’s desk for signature — until TAA is passed? That is what is sounds like. (3) Just put TAA to a vote again sometime next week (Tuesday, 6/16?), and, if TAA passes, then both TAA and TPA go to the president’s desk for signature? That is what it seems to be. (4) Also, Pelosi said “slow down” TPA not “stop” TPA. (5) So, once TAA passes, then TPA becomes official — for 6 years. (6) TPA “rules” say that when a trade deal (TPP, TiSA, TTIP) is then put before congress, that each congress crittter (by TPA “rules”) can only make a yes or no vote. No debates, no amendments, no filibusters. (7) Supposedly, the subtext is that the “no debates, no amendments, no filibusters” procedures will cause a congress person who is “on the fence” to ultimately vote “yes”. (8) And there you have it, from Lake Wobegon.

    You all may wish to see how the collaboration and the conflict among governments is created and staged for public view.

    Meet Robert Lawrence Kuhn, Illuminati handler of China’s leaders at:

    Kuhn was the “keynote” speaker about the Chinese Dream. Why would a Western Jewish international investment banker be explaining the Chinese Dream to the Chinese? Because he wrote it and assigned it to China’s President Xi Jinping.

    Read The Rockefeller Plan for the BRICS New World Order, in their own words… at:

    The photos of Henry Kissinger with China’s Premier Chou En-Lai and more recently with China’s President Xi Jinping show the planned decline of the West has been slowly implemented over many years.

  12. Jon Olsen says:

    Jon, You are usually right on with your analysis, but what you are describing (correctly) above is FASCISM, not socialism. The fusion of mega-corporations with the State is FASCISM. Socialism is empowerment of the working class against the power of the mega-corporations, and the dismantling of the latter! The late USSR had evolved away from socialism into State capitalism, much too like contemporary China. This is NOT socialism. (another) Jon in Maine

    • GJH says:

      Or is it that what is hyped by salesmen as ‘socialism’ is a fantasy that inevitably turns out to be fascism?

    • jkb says:

      Yes it really describes fascism
      And globalism is international capitalism
      but what we’re facing is more like corpratism(subsidies, tariff protection, bails out) it’s faux capitalism, fascism at it’s worst.

    Senate Reverses Course on Fast Tracking TPP

    After some negotiations between parties over the weekend, the Fast Tracking TPP will go back to the House for revote in the next week. My guess is that barring serious resistance from the public, the Bill will fly through Congress.

    True Socialism has nothing to do with any form of government or how business, small or large, but rather a true compassion for the well being of others; That’s the “Social” in socialism. Many Americans have the mindset to put forth the individual first and foremost, and what is left over can be contribution towards others such as philanthropy. Being a true socialist doesn’t mean sacrificing ones individuality for the sake of others. Helping others in your own true unique way is true socialism. Living life any other way will always foster contention and discord in society, and one will always be fighting for “freedom”. This can be thought of semantics of socialism vs. individualism…but is just serving to bring to light the subtleties I see in the above article in regards to what socialism really is rather than what it is not.

    • ozziethinker says:


      Marx came along to head Sarah Louise Bevington and others “off at the pass”. His manifesto was “plan B” capitalism. Other than a few (not internally self-sufficient) Ashrams and “hippie colonies” there has been no instance of TRUE “communism” which transcends government and commerce agendas. Even Africa’s Ubuntu is “pocket capitalism”.

  15. Darlene says:

    Jon the system is called FASCISM. Remember Hitler called his version “National Socialism” specifically to woo the disenchanted workers but the intelligentsia in reality were fiercely opposed to Russian Communism. Sound familiar? It should. Extreme jingoistic nationalism and profits from war glues the disparate puzzle pieces together with the cherry on the top being a pre-selected pre-vetted if not artificially created “leader.” The same class always pulls the puppet strings. The effective Nazi playbook is being replayed on many levels including the deceptive hidden collusion with world Zionism and other extremists in the Middle East, with Mother Russia occupying the role of radical other upon whom all evil is projected, an essential element to another German invention: the Hegelian Dialectic. Spin, wheel of history, spin.

  16. Abinico Arts says:

    Socialism? Huh? This is FASCISM. When mega international corporations run the show it is FASCISM – get it!
