  Corporatocracy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Corporatocracy (sometimes Corporocracy) is a pejorative term coined by proponents of the anti-globalization movement to describe a government bowing to pressure from corporate entities.
Critics of this term argue that the term has no real meaning in terms of political theory, arguing that a corporation is nothing more than a body of individuals, ruled by an elected governing body and executives appointed by that body.
Hence the term "corporatocracy" might be considered somewhat synonymous with plutocracy, the government by the rich.

It is also true that while anyone can become a shareholder in principle, in reality it is frequently only the wealthy who can afford to own enough stock to directly influence the voting (and hence the activities) of a corporation.
Others argue that this doesn't matter, since it is likely that even if poor shareholders were in the majority, they will still vote for things which would make the company more profit, in order to benefit the shareholders.

 Causes - where from here? (part 2)
There will be action plans to de-fang: the corporatocracy, so that corporations can continue to provide products and services without trying to rule the world by whatever means; and the occultocracy, so that intelligence services provide only that, not 'psychological operations' to try to rule the world.
In de-fanging the corportocracy it must be considered that the corporations themselves are not the corporatocracy, rather it is the way that they work together to influence Congressmen and the Administration.
The 'drug war' which is presently unwinnable because the corporatocracy and the occultocracy are on the side of the drug kingpins; will be won.

 Small Acts: John Perkins : Interview
You’ve got to look at it… if you were running for President and you really wanted to reign in the corporatocracy and you ran on a platform that was very nationalistic and said, “we’re not going to let the Americans, the empire, the corporatocracy exploit us” and you won, and you started implementing those policies.
And that all comes through the corporatocracy and they don’t allow anyone to make it to the nominee of either party—Democrat or Republican—who doesn’t meet with their approval.
The corporatocracy has tremendous control over the electoral system in our country and a lot of that simply comes from the fact that it costs a fortune, a huge fortune to even run for president or to run for any major office in the United States.

 Corporatocracy, Corporatism, Fascism
Back when people were actually almost "free" (immediately after WWII), when public education was not just another empty promise - and the trend in life was toward a better tomorrow for everyone - at that time "control" was in retreat, and progress was the theme of every hour.
Instead of that promise, instead of that possibility - what we have now is the outright worship of Mistrust, of Fear, and of Paranoia - along with obscene profits for those who have purchased all the politicians, and who control every facet of this once nearly free society.

Thus, according to Perkins, in the neocolonialism of the 1970s, consultants traveling the world and persuading developing country leaders to borrow and "convincing" developed country governments and agencies to lend were purposively chosen and conscious of their mission-to advance the interests of the corporatocracy and extend the empire of the US.

I really agree with dmennie's comment "Everything important is in play right now from the minimum wage to health insurance to Social Security." What I see happening is the morphing of our democracy into a corporatocracy, where the major corporations are the real arbiters of power.
