          I've been alarmed at the growing power of corporations for a while.  I even wrote a diary on the subject last June.  

           I didn't have any good solutions in mind until I read  Sperry's comment.  That gives me hope.  Now I'm headed over to read the article in Atlantic that you said gave you hope.  These days, I need all the hope I can get.

           I see a potentially big problem in regulating the power of giant multinational corporations.  Since they are not chartered within a community, they lack the constraints of a society around them that could revoke their charter if they become offensive to public morality.  

      Bush hijacked the US with lies about 9/11 and crashed it into Iraq, killing over 500,000 human beings. So far, he's avoided arrest and prosecution.
