    I wrote about corporatism recently on my website.

    It all started to go down hill when Corporations became protected under the Bill of Rights and the 14th amendment as “Natural Born Citizens” this gives them the right the petition the government and all other rights of an individual citizen.

    It was not always like this, i go into much more detail in my article here:

    I take an early look at the history of corporations in America and give a few different examples from the modern era. I thought you might want to take a look at this. Thanks for the good read.

      Who cares about the Bill. The Corporatism will still rise no matter what (sooner or later). Ignore those stuff.
      Too many people looking for Jobs and fighting for products.

      I just watched a very interesting documentary on NetFlix.

      It is called “Nietzche and the Nazis”.

      The two philosophies are compared.

      The Nazis thought that they based a lot of their way of doing things on Neitzche’s thoughts.

      But Neitzche had other reasons for saying what he did.

      I knew a fair bit about the Nazis, but not very much about Neitzche.

      The objective of the movie was to try to convince us not to do the same things the Nazis did.

      As the movie played, it occurred to me that the combination of Corporatism and the far right Tea Party ARE looking a lot like the Nazis did.

      I think we could be heading for serious trouble if Corporatism and the Tea Party take over our government.

      As a result, I Googled “Corporatism versus Capitalism”.

      That Google search showed me that comparing Corporatism and Capitalism just confirms how we could be headed for serious trouble.

      I recommend that you watch the movie and make your own comparison.

      Then act and vote accordingly. I think it could be our last vote. It was for the Germans in the 1930s.

        Yes, they never voted since -.-

        How about “Your life may depend on it”? “It could be the end of democracy *as we know it*”? You know, things that are both dramatic _and_ true…

        I think you’re confusing your terms (most people seem to think corporatism is a component of capitalism… it is not). In your example, the Tea Party would be supporting individual liberties… that is capitalism, not corporatism.

      You are absolutely correct. SCOTUS turned the table on us starting with Buckley v Valeo -where our 1st Amendment rights were applied to corps. And made it worse since Citizen United & a number of subsequent campaign finance, bribery, public corruption cases in state & federal court.

    A few notes on Neitzche: He severed his relationship with both Wagner and his sisters husband because of their proto-nazi beliefs. Also “Will To Power” is not Neitzche, its a collection of his discarded notes compiled by his sister (a proto-nazi herself) who also added much of her own philosophy in as well.

    However Neitzche also went on at length talking about how nasty “The Group” can be.

    Corporatism empowers the mob and by proxy empowers the megalomaniacs who seek to control the mob, while Capitalism empowers the individual. The group truly is an ugly thing, its like a stampede that only needs something to send it in the direction of its next victim.

    Nazi’s as a group killed millions, no individual has ever come close.

      Stalin has killed MILLIONS and made many *vanish* if they disagreed.

      People have been *ran over* by the trucks that bring road tar and cement people’s bodies under communism.

      All nations have mountains of skulls over communism but let’s just let the powers to be remain drunk with status and titles.

      We’ll worry about the mounting death tolls later.

    The only difference in between capitalism and corporatism is that, corporatism does NOT exist ….

    Your first paragraph is hilarious : capitalism recognizes individual rights.

    How are you going to have individual rights when entire water resources, farmland or other strategically important resources are owned by few private wealthy individuals.

    Dont answer – you are not going to have any such rights. Just like how today you dont have any, in the current, CAPITALIST economy.

      You seem to be confused. We are not a CAPITALIST society anymore, we have moved to CORPORATISM. Before government intervention and a “planned economy” were implemented, our society worked and lots more people had way more opportunity to advance and move up the ladder. Today’s environment has become way more corporate with less opportunity for the individual to improve his lot in life. The only thing corporatism guarantees is equality of misery.

    Quit trying to wake people up on the difference between capitalism and corporatism. Just let the wonkers have their party and be drunk both literally and symbolic with power.

    They don’t want to hear the *doom* and *gloom* crap even if it’s true.

    Humanity needs to go thru a massive reset then we can rebuild.

    This article unfortunately presents somewhat of a bias toward capitalism. An example: “The government justifies the creation of public ventures claiming that there are no takers of certain projects that are essential to the people from the private sector because the projects are huge and require a large amount of investment that the businessmen cannot afford.” This sentence implies that the government is inherently duplicitous.
    Corporatism should not to be confused with a corporatocracy which is an inadequately regulated version of capitalism. In the US we have mix of capitalism(private ownership), corporatism(private companies controlled by the government), corporatocracy(private companies who have more power than the government), and socialism(police, fire departments, etc.). We are currently dominated by the corporatocracy. The medical industry is a good example of corporate domination of an industry that should be viewed as infrastructure which distributes its value to the nation’s citizens but instead feeds corporate coffers. The amount of money allowed to influence government policy is an indicator of the government’s loss of control.
