Chris Hedges article Calling All Future-Eaters today continues his ontology toward revolt. In it he says "The leaders of these corporations now determine our fate. They are not endowed with human decency or compassion. Yet their lobbyists make the laws. Their public relations firms craft the propaganda and trivia pumped out through systems of mass communication. Their money determines elections. Their greed turns workers into global serfs and our planet into a wasteland." He advocates for us all to riseup, to resist, to rebel against the forces of death that are set on destroying the world in the name of short term greed, me too.
"The interests of the corporation state are to convert all the riches of the earth into dollars."
-William O. Douglas, former U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1969

Resistance is NOT futile, radical change is possible. Often throughout history huge effects have evolved from seemingly small initial causes. The capitialist empire appears all-powerful but it's really just like in 'The Wizard of OZ', behind the frightful curtain sits weakness not strenght, weakness that dominates us only through fear, weakness that is quickly overcome when individuals find the courage to riseup and tear down their curtain.

Hedges concludes today by saying: "We will either defy the corporate elite, which will mean civil disobedience, a rejection of traditional politics for a new radicalism and the systematic breaking of laws, or see ourselves consumed. Time is not on our side. The longer we wait, the more assured our destruction becomes. The future, if we remain passive, will be wrested from us by events. Our moral obligation is not to structures of power, but life.". Right on Chris, see ya at the barricades!

obligations of obedience. Therefore [individual citizens] have the duty
to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity
from occurring" -- Nuremberg War Crime Tribunal, 1950
