Friday Questions for Diane, April 11, 2008

This week we learned that the Bush/Cheney Justice Department has again given preferential treatment to corporations that should have been indicted for criminal activities. So much compassion is demonstrated for industry, wanting to help the corporate world avoid “catastrophic collateral consequences and costs” that can be a “corporate death sentence”.

Yet, we have seen extremely little of that compassion for human beings, either here or abroad.

I am not usually one to use inflammatory words, because they tend to turn people off. However, given this complete deference to industry over the law of the land, I can’t help but think of Benito Mussolini’s own definition of Fascism: the merger of State and corporate power.

What are we to think?!
