The entire world is headed into three simultaneous monumental crises: financial, environmental and social. The environmental destruction, social unrest and financial collapse are all precipitated by corporate stranglehold on our governments, institutions and global monetary policies.
Guns, laws and money are all instruments of social organization and control. Whoever controls any or all will rule the world. Right now, the military-industrial-congressional-complex (MICC) has it all.
In Chris Hedges latest article, “Colonized by Corporations” (truthdig.com - May 14, 2012)http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/colonized_by_corporations_20120514
“We have been, like nations on the periphery of empire, colonized. We are controlled by tiny corporate entities that have no loyalty to the nation and indeed in the language of traditional patriotism are traitors. They strip us of our resources, keep us politically passive and enrich themselves at our expense.”
“Laws are written to legalize corporate plunder and abuse, as well as criminalize dissent.”
“A change of power does not require the election of a Mitt Romney or a Barack Obama or a Democratic majority in Congress, or an attempt to reform the system or electing progressive candidates, but rather a destruction of corporate domination of the political process... It requires the establishment of new mechanisms of governance to distribute wealth and protect resources, to curtail corporate power, to cope with the destruction of the ecosystem and to foster the common good.”
Our only hope to stop the MICC domination is by revolution of the masses.
The Occupy protest we witness now is just a dress rehearsal of what is yet to come.
We have already seen the start of this revolutionary process in the “Arab Spring” in Middle Eastern nations. We will see this eventually come to Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy in the coming months. As the walls of the financial-corporate-ruling class structures come tumbling down, this will spread to the rest of Europe and America.
“A revolution has been unleashed across the globe. This revolution, a popular repudiation of the old order, is where we should direct all our energy and commitment. If we do not topple the corporate elites the ecosystem will be destroyed and massive numbers of human beings along with it.”

“Go ahead and vote this November. But don’t waste any more time or energy on the presidential election than it takes to get to your polling station and pull a lever for a third-party candidate—just enough to register your obstruction and defiance—and then get back out onto the street. That is where the question of real power is being decided.”
