Separation of Corporations and State
Abraham Lincoln famously said that "Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth". However, in this day in age, it may be more accurate to say "of corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations."
In my opinion, it has become very apparent that corporations have much more influence over our governments than their people.. and the people know it.
And while this situation has mutually benefited corporations and most of the population in the past, this new political corporate state of affairs has become increasingly against the average person.. rather the lower 99% of the population.
This is why we need to separate corporations from having direct influence over governments. Just like how we have separation of church and state, we now also need separation of corporations and state.
Of course, the current political environment is so entrenched with corporate powers, this change will likely never happen without a revolution or some other major catastrophe. However according to Abraham Lincoln, some governments who are not for the people, by the people, for the people will be soon perishing.
Therefore, now is the time to start planning for the next form of government without church and corporations in power.
