    Unaccountable power — bad for us if that's the case for government and corporations alike

    Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.

    •  So then, how to apply your tagline? (0+ / 0-)

      I agree with that, BTW.

      ...and it suggests that we the people, agree to self-govern, so that we may "secure our freedom".

      Business is permitted, through government to do the same thing.

      If we are being enslaved by one or the other, we check that with civil action, right?

      So then we have the ballot box for Government, but if business comes before people, we don't have a check on that, given the size and scope of business as it exists today.

      IF THEY ARE GOING TO SCREW THE PEOPLE, MAKE THEM OWN IT.
