Economic Justice: The Corporation

Corporations have no soul to be saved, no body to be incarcerated, thus they are difficult to motivate toward good. When they were delivered to life by the Supreme Court, they became "people," but what kind of people are they? If the financial meltdown -- or Michael Moore -- has piqued your interest in the workings of capitalism, this three-hour documentary will blow your stocks off.

"You'd think that things like disasters, or the purity of childhood, or even milk, let alone water or air, would be sacred. But no. Corporations have no built-in limits on what, who, or how much they can exploit for profit. In the fifteenth century, the enclosure movement began to put fences around public grazing lands so that they might be privately owned and exploited. Today, every molecule on the planet is up for grabs. In a bid to own it all, corporations are patenting animals, plants, even your DNA. Around things too precious, vulnerable, sacred or important to the public interest, governments have, in the past, drawn protective boundaries against corporate exploitation. Today, governments are inviting corporations into domains from which they were previously barred." -- from the website.
