the #sackleropoidcrisis is a catastrophe that needs dedicated, pro-active educated (at the very least well informed about effective treatments for addiction), and most importantly *empathetic* addiction advocates. the shame and stigma are very real, and need to be quashed. John Oliver does a wonderful job of presenting sensitive issues with care.

Here is one cluster of ideas for rewriting the Defining Law of corporations. It’s not a 3-point plan & it’s not the beginning of a Twenty Point Plan - just some ideas to think about: 1. Prohibit corporations from owning stock in other corporations. Owning stock in other corporations enables corporations to control huge markets and shift responsibility, liability, resources, assets, and taxes back and forth among parent corporations, subsidiaries, and other members of their unholy families. By defining corporations in such a way to prohibit such ownership, much of the anti-trust regulatory law becomes unnecessary and superfluous. 2. Prohibit corporations from being able to choose when to go out of business (in legalese, no voluntary dissolution). This would prevent corporations from dissolving themselves when it came time to pay taxes, repay government loans, pay creditors, pay pensions, pay for health care, and pay for toxic cleanups. 3. Make stockholders liable for a corporation’s debts. People who want to be stockholders would reallocate their resources to corporations that they knew something about, that weren’t engaged in risky, toxic projects. (This would encourage local, sustainable businesses and healthy local economies. Imagine that.) These three measures might seem “unrealistic” to some, but it beats the heck out of a voluntary code of conduct, or a wasted decade at a regulatory agency. All three of these provisions were once common features of state corporation codes. No wonder corporate apologists prefer that we hang around in the regulatory agencies with our heads spinning with parts per million and habitat conservation plans. These three measures were quite effective, which is why corporation lawyers worked so hard to get rid of them. But they address only a tiny portion of what needs to be done. Here’s another cluster of ideas for ways to shape a democratic process that is about people. (The idea that corporations have “rights” would seem nonsensical to any but a colonized mind.) 1. No corporate participation in the democratic process. Democracy is for and about human beings. Corporations should be prohibited from paying for any political advertisements, making any campaign contributions, or seeking to influence the democratic process in any way. 2. Corporations have no Constitutional rights. A corporation is an artificial creation set up to serve a public need, not an independent entity with intrinsic “rights.” 3. Corporations should be prohibited from making any civic, charitable, or educational donations. Such donations are used to warp the entire social and economic fabric of society, and make people afraid to speak out against corporations. These probably seem even more “unrealistic” than the first batch. Imagine how good it is for corporate executives that we find these ideas “impractical.” And by the way, these were all once law, too. The final objection to be raised is that we’ll never get anywhere as long as the “news media” are against us, refuse to cover our issues, and distort our views. Agreed. But the “news media” are corporations, key players in a system of propaganda that encompasses not only television, radio, and newspapers but also the entire educational system. The “air waves” belong to the public. Why have we allowed a puppet federal agency to “lease” the public airwaves to huge corporations? Ya wanna lock down? Lock down to a TV or radio station and make the public airwaves public again. Not for a day but for a lifetime. Ya like boycotts? What if a regulatory agency gave a hearing and nobody came? The outcome would be the same but we wouldn’t have wasted all the time and resources, nor would we have helped grant an aura of legitimacy to a sham proceeding. What could we do instead? We could get together with the lawyer and the expert and begin to figure out how to stop being collaborators. *** “Colonized,” written in 1998 at the request of editors at Earth First! Journal, was never printed in full form there because they... couldn’t deal with it. It was first officially published in DEFYING CORPORATIONS, DEFINING DEMOCRACY (Apex Press, 2001, ed. Dean Ritz), a book that includes several other pieces by the author.

No no no... I don't care if you "feel it's nessisary" to piss on the line of a food packing plant. People felt like they needed to storm the capitol what someone feels they need to do is not a valid argument... I'm sure these companies suck but you are still a shit person if you choose to contaminate a food supply because you "feel" a way. I have a gastrointestinal disorder have worked on a factory line, (not food) and have never no matter how hard pressed thought it an acceptable thing to just relieve myself on the line let alone felt it so okay I setup a system to do so. Literally no one should be willing to accept that regardless how that guy "felt" that was the good choice. The company might suck but so does that person regardless of if anyone at the company knew this was happening and I'd bet a few thousand dollars they didn't. Bad starter for a real issue.

I'm a paramedic. I remember getting called to a factory late at night once for a worker injury. When we talked to the patient he said he needed to make sure his supervisor was okay with him being transported to the hospital. After a 10 minute wait that included two overhead pages for the supervisor to show up, the supervisor said my patient couldn't go to the hospital with us since all that was required was for him to be checked out by a medical person before he returned to work. The supervisor said normally during the day they have an onsite paramedic who handles stuff like this but they only work during the day which is the only reason they called 911. The supervisor actually told me I couldn't transport my patient claiming some company policy. I told him if my patient said he wants to go to the hospital with me, he has that right and there was nothing a third shift factory supervisor was going to do to stop me. That's when he walked away. Both me and my partner told our patient that we didn't give a rats ass about their company policy and if he wanted us to take him to the hospital we would no questions asked. The patient elected to drive himself to the hospital. Both my partner and I told him that he needed to file raise a huge stink about that. File a grievance with his union, call the media, what ever he needed to do.

This is why republicans reworked the safety regulations for OSHA. OSHA monitors workplace safety in all areas of businesses. Even office workplaces.
