    that’s a very difficult statement. while private corporations have agendas – as
    has been proven over and over again – so does our government that works now for the 1% agenda. Power has eclipsed corporate.

      “That’s the standard technique of privatization: defund, make sure things
      don’t work, people get angry, you hand it over to private capital.”

        I did hesitate to like your post – just ’cause of the terribly realistic image… 😦 I met Chomsky at the University, via one of my Professors who still ‘worships’ him, reckoning him as one of the greatest contemporary thinkers…

          I am quite impressed by Chomsky myself.
          I used that image once before and the impact stayed with me, so I thought it would be appropriate for this post.

      Privatisation in the UK is another economic destructive disaster of Margaret Thatcher – and the asset stripping continues.
