Corporatocracy is the corporate-government-combination, a society or system governed or controlled by corporations. Government has been coopted in service of the corporate bottom line. Money goes to the company, not the inventor or the citizens. America’s large corporations and the government have merged. Or was it an acquisition? While the two retain their own distinct legal structures and managements, their close community of interest has made it impossible to separate them they are a conjoined blob. There is no way to understand either US history or current events without a very close study of the corporatocracy.
John Perkins says in his books, “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,” that he was a highly paid professional to cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars and their natural resources. He was initially recruited while in business school in the late sixties by the National Security Agency, and ultimately worked for private corporations.
The first real economic hit man was Kermit Roosevelt Jr. in the early 1950s. Kermit was the grandson of Teddy Roosevelt. Kermit overthrew the government of Iran, a democratically elected government. Kermit did this with some bloodshed, but no military intervention, he just spent millions of dollars and replaced Mossadegh with the Shah of Iran. Kermit Roosevelt was a C.I.A. agent, a government employee. If he had been caught, it would be embarrassing. So, the decision was made going forward, to use organizations like the C.I.A. and the N.S.A. to recruit potential Economic Hit Men.
Economic Hit Men are sent to work for private consulting companies, engineering firms and construction companies, so that if they get caught, there will be no connection to the government. They are masters at funneling money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign “aid” organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of the wealthy few families that control earth’s natural resources. They use fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, blackmail and murder. The goal is to convince leaders of underdeveloped countries to accept substantially large development loans for large construction and engineering projects to benefit the richest families and local elites. They make sure these projects are contracted to U.S. companies. The loans give the U.S. political influence and access to their natural resources for use and abuse by the U.S. companies.
John Perkins criticizes U.S. foreign policy and the widely accepted concept that “all economic growth benefits humankind, that the greater the growth, the more widespread the benefits. Trickle–down economics is a theory that says benefits for the wealthy trickle down to everyone else. These benefits are usually tax cuts on businesses, high-income earners, capital gains and dividends. In reality only a small portion of the population benefits at the expense of the rest of the population. The truth is this method increase income inequality. Large U.S. companies exploit cheap labor and oil companies destroy local environments and the “economic hit man” is used to speed up and facilitate that process. Perkins job was to convince the political and financial leaders of underdeveloped countries to accept enormous development loans from institutions like the World Bank and USAID, saddling them with debts they could not hope to pay, those countries were forced to acquiesce to political pressure from the United States on a variety of issues. Perkins argues that developing nations were effectively neutralized politically, had their wealth gaps driven wider and economies crippled in the long run. Expand your perceptions of our leaders, to allow for the POSSIBILITY that criminal activity is what has made this world go round.
Another example is the CIA’s illegal drug trade around the world to fund their COVERT PROJECTS. The American authorities have allowed US Oil companies to ship chemicals to South America and other agencies and arranged to transport drugs from South America by sea to oil rigs drilling off the US coast. From that point, the drugs and other trafficking can be brought ashore under the cover of oil operations. This operation came close to becoming widely known in the wake of the Iran-Contra Affair and gulf oil. Those who have investigated the CIA-drugs connection say it began in the late 1950s and is still going strong.
To support the corporatocracy there is a MILITARY MANDATE to the Military Intelligence Agency (MIA), in Washington DC to instigate or stir up continual conflicts and Wars globally. Artificial or real conflicts are intended to generate buying, selling and future business opportunities for those owning international corporations. The City of London is the center of global finance and is in charge of all hidden finances. The Bank of England controls the worlds stock and commodities markets, coordinates tax avoidance schemes for major corporations, and creates money for the Illuminist bloodline families.
