I have been re-reading Jerry Mander's "In the Absence of the Sacred" for a piece I'd like to post here sometime in the near future. I came across this segment from the book that deals with corporations right here on the internet and I thought I would share it.

Generally I think people consider corporations relatively neutral. We tend to forget though that a corporation has one purpose and one purpose only: to make money, turn a profit- make a return to investors to make further investment inviting. And guess what- "externalizing costs", that is, not making them show up on the balance sheet, equals profit. It costs money to dispose of toxic waste properly; but if you just run it down the drain you spend less, making the bottom line better. Now the "externalization" comes in when folks get sick from the water the toxic wastes run into- they rather than the corporation pay the end "cost" of the corporations toxic by-product.

Give "Eleven Inherent Rules of Corporate Behavior" by Jerry Mander a read. It will really make you think. I can guarantee that you'll look at Corporate Commercials with a more critical eye.

If that got your mind warmed and your dander up I offer you this awesome resource for comprehending and combating corporate governance. If you access all the links offered there I won't be seeing your smile here for a while. Just be sure to share all you learn. And come on back...


You sure need a critical eye and ear to make your way through all the poop our current White House resident and his advisors are spewing. Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about sex: will Mr Bush ever be called to task for the lies he tells the American people? ( heres a bunch, documented, don't be afraid to do some scrolling and linking)


This article " All the Presidents Lies" is very specific about instances of Mr Bush lying to "We the People", you'll notice the truth is never as nice as what he says; he knows the average American is a good person and would disagree with his actions if honestly stated. Why do you think the media(that we are told is left-wing or at least Liberal) doesn't do its' unbiased best to inform us? Hmmm....

This Australian TV News segment on the FOX network is really worth watching. It is streaming video and the dialup option worked really well on my computer...

Synchronicity

I have been re-reading Jerry Mander's book "In The Absence of the Sacred" in the face of our nations occupation of Iraq. I had been thinking abut it since Rachel Corries death, and moreso since the the shooting of Brian Avery and the murder of Tom Hurndall (realaudio) by Israeli Defense Forces.

While the book speaks about the impact of technology on the life of modern people while leading us to ponder just how genuine our way in the world is nowadays, what I was looking for was some concrete examples of just how dehumanizing Occupation is. You see one thing the IDF and the US Calvary have in common is the inhumane treatment of the people that live on the land. Oddly enough in "Mein Kamph" the book Hitler wrote that initially showed the world what a hate filled and horrible man he was he detailed that the manner in Native Americans were treated in by the occupying Americans would be the model for his treatment of
