On this eerie October Friday the 13th, as the world prepares for spooky tales and haunted happenings, let's not forget about a real horror that haunts our democracy every day: the insidious grip of Corporate Rule and their ill-gotten Corporate Constitutional Rights.
The shadows cast by Corporate Rule are far-reaching and haunting. We see corporations poisoning the very air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we consume, all in the relentless pursuit of profit. The question we must all ponder is, should profits matter more than people?
Did you know that 147 corporations control over 40% of the world's wealth? It's a nightmarish concentration of power that enables these corporate giants to shape the world according to their desires. They can even spend unlimited money to manipulate elections, leaving our democracy at risk. Not to mention, six multinational corporations control the majority of U.S. media, shaping the narratives we consume.
But the horrors don't stop there. Prison corporations contribute millions to political campaigns, leading the United States to incarcerate more people than any other nation. It's no mere coincidence; it's a manifestation of corporate influence at its darkest.
A.L.E.C. is a name whispered in the shadows, where global corporations and politicians vote behind closed doors to rewrite state laws, all in the name of maximizing profit. This hidden influence seeps into our daily lives, distorting the foundations of justice and fairness.
Pharmaceutical companies, driven by their insatiable appetite for profit, spend millions lobbying for weaker regulations. They thrive on the opioid epidemic, leaving devastation in their wake. And as if that weren't enough, corporations are taking over our minds, seizing control of our educational system or, in some cases, defunding it. Our children's future hangs in the balance.
The chilling reality is that these corporate horrors persist because they can. But we can change this narrative with your support. Move to Amend stands ready to end these nightmares by passing the We the People Amendment H.J.R. 54. Your financial support is crucial in our fight for a just future.
