“With 112 billion barrels of oil, at least according to Oil
and Gas Journal, Iraq has the second largest oil reserves in
the world. And although you may not be aware of it… 90% of
Iraq’s oil exports — 24.2 million barrels a month — already
go to the United States. Only the “invasion strategy”
appears to remain in question. “

POCLAD – Can Corporations Be Accountable, Part 2

and

By the beginning of the 20th century, corporations had become sovereign and they had turned people into consumers, or workers, or whatever the corporation of the moment chose to define humans as.
Without a clear understanding of history, most citizen efforts against corporations in this century have been struggles against the symptoms of corporate domination, which we have waged in regulatory and administrative law arenas.

POCLAD – Can Corporat

and..

In the late 19th century, the Supreme Court of Georgia, in Railroad Co. v. Collins, wrote:
“All experience has shown that large accumulations of property in hands likely to keep it intact for a long period are dangerous to the public weal. Having perpetual succession, any kind of corporation has peculiar facilities for such accumulations, and most governments have found it necessary to exercise caution in their grants of corporate charters. Even religious corporations, professing and in the main, truly, nothing but the general good, have proven obnoxious to this objection, so that in England it was long ago found necessary to restrict them in their powers of acquiring real estate. Freed,as such bodies are, from the sure bounds–the grave–to the schemes of individuals they are able to add field to field, and power to power, until they become entirely too strong for that society which is made of up those whose plans are limited by a single life.”1
Justices White, Brennan and Marshall, dissenting in a 1978 case, First National Bank of Boston v. Belotti:
“It has long been recognized, however, that the special status of corporations has placed them in a position to control vast amount of economic power which may, if not regulated, dominate not only the economy but also the very heart of our democracy, the electoral process… The State need not permit its own creation to consume it.”2
