"They scoff and speak only evil;
in their pride they seek to crush others."
- Psalm 73:8

Adam Smith, in his 1776 classic, The Wealth of Nations, said he was troubled by the fact that corporations' owners, shareholders, did not run their own businesses but delegated that task to professional managers.

Adam Smith believed professional managers could not be trusted to apply the same "anxious vigilance" to manage "other people's money" as they would their own and "negligence and profusion therefore must prevail, more or less, in the management of such a incorporation."

The "best interests of the corporation" priciple, a fixture of corporate law, addresses Adam Smith's concern by compelling corporate decision makers always to act in the best interests of the corporation and its shareholders.

The law forbids any other motivation for actions, whether to assist workers, improve the environment, or help consumers save money. Corporate officers can do these things with their own money, as private citizens but as corporate officials, however, stewards of other people's money, they have no legal authority to pursue such goals as ends in themselves - only as means to serve the corporation's own interests - to maximize the wealth of shareholders.

A corporation, by definition of corporate law, is singularly self-interested.
Corporate social responsibility is illegal.

Corporate social responsibility is an oxymoron.

"Corporation, n. An ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility." - Ambrose Bierce Devil's Dictionary, 1911

September 11, 2001 SEC offices are destroyed in the World Trade Center.

"The SEC has not quantified the number of active cases in which substantial files were destroyed. Reuters and the Los Angeles Times published reports estimating them at 3,000 to 4,000. They include the agency's major inquiry into the manner in which investment banks divvied up hot shares of initial public offerings during the high-tech boom." - Margaret Cronin Fisk

2002 to 2007 US Justice Department wins 1,236 convictions in corporate fraud cases.

2004 The wealthiest 1% of American citizens own 36.9% of all stock. 30% of stock is enough to fully control most corporations.

2007 Warren Buffet states he feels no imperative to invest in socially responsible corporations or to press those corporations in which he invested to be socially responsible.

January 21, 2010 Quest for corporate personhood completed. Corporations can now make unlimited, direct political contributions.

"The Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. the Federal Election Commission paves the way for unlimited corporate and union spending in elections, thus drowning out of the average citizen's voice in our public policy debates. In other words, the court has made a bad situation worse by enhancing the ability of the deepest-pocketed special interests to influence elections and the US Congress." - Bob Edgar 01/22/10

"The corporate design contained in hundreds of corporate laws across the face of the Earth is nearly identical . . . the people who run corporations have a legal duty to shareholders, and that duty is to make money. Failing this duty can leave directors and officers open to being sued by shareholders. The law dedicates the corporation to the pursuit of its own self-interest - and equates corporate self-interest with shareholder self-interest. No mention is made of responsibility to the public interest. Corporate law thus casts ethical and social concerns as irrelevant, or as stumbling blocks to the corporation's fundamental mandate." - Robert Hinkley, corporate lawyer

"There can be no real freedom or democracy until the men who do the work in a business also control its management." - Bertrand Russell


plutocracy pyramid

The wealthy need winners and need losers in order to increase the wealth they parasitically stole and, to keep it, they need only bet on the winning side - themselves.

"The idea that some areas of society and life are too precious, vulnerable, sacred, or important for the public interest to be subject to commercial exploitation seems to be losing its influence. For on an Earth where anything or anyone can be owned, manipulated, and exploited for profit, everything and everyone will eventually be." - Joe Balkan

"The practical business view is that a fine is an additional cost of doing business. A prohibited activity is not inhibited by the threat of a fine so long as the anticipated profits from the activity outweigh the amount of the fine multiplied by the probability of being apprehended and convicted." - Bruce Welling

"The truly "elite" are the super-rich who have received massive tax breaks while American jobs are sent overseas in an effort to convert millionaires into billionaires. This unpatriotic action has turned the proud post-World War II middle class into a marginalized segment desperately fending off poverty." - David Ohman



manipulation

"In 1950 US corporations footed 26% of the total US tax bill. By 1990 they were covering only 9%, contributing to massive budget deficits and the current $14 trillion US debt. In 2009 corporate leviathans such as Bank of America, General Electric and ExxonMobil paid no US federal taxes. Exxon's net profit for that year was over $45 billion. It utilized subsidiaries in the British Crown-controlled Bahamas, Bermuda and Cayman Islands to dodge the IRS." - Dean Henderson

"Any fresh survey of men's political actions shows that, in those who have enough energy to be politically effective, love of power is a stronger motive than economic self-interest. Love of power actuates the great billionaires, who have far more money than they can spend, but continue to amass wealth merely in order to control more and more of the world's finance." - Bertrand Russell

"We should not forget even for a moment that this whole animate world is a large family in which nature has not assigned any property to any particular individual. Individual ownership has been created by selfish opportunists so that they might take advantage of the defects of this system in order to grow fatter in a parasitic way. The aspiration to become rich by exploiting others is a mental malady." - Shrii Prabhat R. Sarkar



"Accumulated wealth is not a reward for any tangible contribution to society made by the possessor." - Ferdinand Lundberg 1937

"Corporate libertarianism" has emerged placing the rights and freedoms of corporations above that of individuals. This influence led to cultural and economic ideologies known by numerous names such as neoliberal, libertarian economics, market capitalism, market liberalism etc.

The guiding principles of corporate libertarianism ideology include:

Sustained corporate growth as the way to human progress.

Free markets without government "interference" as the most efficient and socially optimal allocation of resources.

Corporate globalization as beneficial to everyone.

Privatization removes inefficiencies of public sector.

Governments function to provide infrastructure to advance the rule of law with respect to property rights and contracts.



"When more than a billion people struggle to survive on the purchasing power equivalent of less than a dollar a day there has to be serious moral doubt about whether anyone should be a billionaire." - Peter Singer

Dorrance family soup works


The Cox family, the DeVos family, the Dorrance family, the Gallo family, the Harbert family, the Koch family, the Mars family, the Sobrato family, the Walton family and several other families have relied on their fortunes, the resources of their companies and their business connections to marshal a massive anti-estate tax juggernaut that has reported nearly a half-billion dollars in lobbying expenditures ($490.3 million) since 1998. They stand to save $1 trillion.

"Why should men leave great fortunes to their children? If this is done from affection, is it not misguided affection? Observation teaches that, generally speaking, it is not well for the children that they should be so burdened. Neither is it well for the state. Beyond providing for the wife and daughters moderate sources of income, and very moderate allowances indeed, if any, for the sons, men may well hesitate, for it is no longer questionable that great sums bequeathed oftener work more for the injury than for the good of the recipients. wise men will soon conclude that, for the best interests of the members of their families and of the state, such bequests are an improper use of their means. ... the thoughtful man must shortly say, "would as soon leave to my son a curse as the almighty dollar," and admit to himself that it is not the welfare of the children but family pride which inspires these enormous legacies. ... The growing disposition to tax more and more heavily large estates left at death is a cheering indication of the growth of a salutary change in public opinion. ... Men who continue hoarding great sums all their lives, the proper use of which for public ends would work good to the community, should be made to feel that the community, in the form of the state, cannot thus be deprived of its proper share. By taxing estates heavily at death the state marks its condemnation of the selfish billionaire's unworthy life." - Andrew Carnegie

77 billionaires, about 1 in 4, started out with huge inheritances.

"If you are born at the right time, with some access to family fortune, and you have a special talent for whipping up other people's hatred and sense of deprivation, you can arrange to kill large numbers of unsuspecting people. With enough money, you can accomplish this from far away, and you can sit back safely and watch in satisfaction." - Martha Stout

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully.
