finally spliced a couple of notable items from recent times, offering a glimpse, if you will, into our corporocractic future. this is not a future world where it's some swank, gone off robot game. this future is one where it seems unlikely that the human species will progress to the point of having gone-off future world gun-slingin' yul brenner badass robot games. the actual corporate vision of the future, hinted at below, appears decidedly less appealing.
In one, well known and widely despised monsanto wants to rule the world's food supply. government agencies, aka former and future monsanto executives and lobbyists, are entirely onboard. they will stop at nothing to prevent much public exposure of scientific research detailing the rather grim hazards of both GM crops and the money-making roundup/roundup ready crop system in creating both human disease and deformity, and superweeds -- yeah, superfukkinweeds. childhood cancers, genetic deformation and super goddam weeds. not to mention a doomed food monoculture. there's yer monsanto, leave us alone to rule, corporate future of the world's food supply, untethered from monitor, regulation, science, law, and reason by sticky interleaves of corporate and governmental interests.
In another spritely tale brought to us by overlordly corporate vision, another peep into their glorious, do what they want future, lies the toxic and radioactive saga of hydrofracking in the stout-hearted homeland, replete with corporate disregard for human health, or even basic livability of place. government agencies, aka former and future industry executives and lobbyists, are entirely onboard. the corporocratic american petroleum institute helps keep it all quiet, even writing silly letters to the amp telling those dummies that the film "Gasland" should be un-nominated for best documentary -- full of lies! they said. therefore, fiction. naturally, the silly letter made the issue not quiet at all. the petroleum industry is willing, able and now actively poisoning americans with befouled water and air. though the epa knows this, overlook has been the policy of both bush and obama, while the plunge for gas blights the land, fouls the air, inflames the water, sickens the population. there's yer petroleum industry, leave us alone to rule, corporate future of america's air and water supply, untethered from monitor, regulation, science, law, and reason by sticky interleaves of corporate and governmental interests.
now, you can pretty much apply that template to any industry, arms, war makers, mining, timber, on and on. which basically means that, if these fuckers get their wished for unfettered way, we all be deformed, sick, dying or dead. do corporate visionaries not understand that they need water too? perhaps not. perhaps the lethal fancy pantsers all think they'll just keep drinking bottled water, so, ha! no problem. alien lizard theory would explain this behaviour quite well. either that, or innate hubris, impermeable ignorance, and blinding cupidity. shave that with the razor.
