The Corporation 

The Film you must see.

This film says it all. Go out and buy it, watch it, and pass it around to your friends. This will show you how the world really works, and it should be spread around as much as possible.

This film covers all the ills that the corporate culture hath wrought on this world, from sweat shop labor, polution, privatization, collusion with fascists regimes, exploitation of just about everything in the name of profit and control.

I think one of the worst exampls discussed in the film was IBMs provision of punch-card machine to the Nazis that allowed them to keep track of the prisonrs in the concentration camps, allowing for the tabulation of such information about the prisoner as to why they were being held, whether they were homosexuel, jewish, a jehovah's witness, and how what happened to them, suicide, execution, or special treatment (i.e. the gas chambers).

Or how Coke had created Fanta Orange in order to maintain it's profits in Germany during WWII.

I think one of the more disturbing aspects covered are the 'single season seeds'. These are seeds for crops, some developed by the Monsanto Corporation, that, among other things, contain a 'Terminator Gene' that prevents the crops from generating usful seeds to be used in planting the following season.

All around this is a very good documentary that i'm sure you lefties will enjoy... if you get joy out of being enraged anyway.

Have a good weekend folks!
