America's Corpocracy: The Legacy of U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Lewis F. Powell (1907-1998) Although he did not use the term and might be horrified to witness what it has become, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell's (1907-1998) legacy is today's powerful and ruinous copocracy. The intent of this article is to summarize Powell's role and its aftermath and then to close with a brief preview of a scheme to undo his legacy short of a Second American Revolution.

America's Corpocracy: Conspiracy Theory or Conspiracy Reality "Our" government is accountable to no one, a scofflaw committing all sorts of wrong doing daily up to and including ordering deadly drone strikes. This government, moreover, in good faith as a conspirator, rarely holds corporations accountable for all sorts of their wrongdoing, including defrauding and gouging the government. Is it any wonder then that the two parties to the marriage made in Hell conspire to raise Hell?

Individually and collectively they are Religion, Inc. and not really all that different from Corporations, Inc.

War: Ruminations and Ruinations The purpose of this article is straightforward, to make a convincing argument that war is neither unavoidable nor just nor inevitable. I start by "enlisting" (that word is not really meant to have military connotations) the "reinforcement" (ditto the first parenthetical) of luminaries down through the ages and what they have said against war. Following them, I give my research and analysis to back up my argument.

"Hands up Corporate Crooks!" Not Really Unless it's in a Movie. Much of corporate wrongdoing such as bribery of politicians has been made legal by our servile government. What's left is illegal corporate wrongdoing, or corporate crime, and it basically goes scot-free courtesy of a hands-off government with its lap dogs instead of watch dogs; escape hatches (e.g., legal loopholes); pampering instead of prosecuting and punishing; and deregulation. This last one is analyzed in this article.

The U.S. Corpgress Congress has been bought out by Corporate America. Getting elected and reelected requires “trolling for tricks” and once elected into the “Chambers of Ill Repute” their behavior nosedives even farther below the universal bottom line of behavior, most notably acquiescing to corporate touts and passing corporatized laws that need to be flushed and replaced by a few good laws serving the public’s interests.

Come Home America? Not Till Her Corpocracy Leaves The letter to end US warring is well meaning but it's destined for the round files. To end the corpocracy along with its warring will require really hard, organized, coordinated, sustained and strategic work backed by massive public support. That work has yet to be even started! But if the corpocracy along with its warring isn't ended it will eventually end America as surely as the tides come and go.

The Model Corporation: Part One. Introduction If there were no corrupt corporations there would be no corpocracy, or the collusion between big corporations and big government. But corrupt corruptions in every industry are the norm, not the exception. Are there any truly great corporations doing business that could be role models? Can you name one? This article is the first of a series that describes what a model corporation would look like and do.

Hollywood: "Reel" War and Not Enough Peace Hollywood is the source of "reel" war and peace, giving the most screen time to glorifying war out of deference to its patron, the U.S. political, military, and industrial complex. This article proposes striking back with a new antiwar movie.

2020, the U.S. Democracy Corps, Achilles Heel, and the Distant Future The future of humanity may be lost if Public Enemy No. 1 is not stopped in its tracks. While it is the world's most powerful enemy, it has an Achilles Heel that can be targeted legally, peacefully, and successfully, but only if Americans unite to form a U.S. Democracy Corps.

The Model Corporation. Part Two: Shorter and Smaller are Better Why should a model corporation matter? Great corporations don't exist. One reason is that corporations get hand fed and pardoned by our government. Another is that they are too tall and big. Another is that they have several other bad features to be exposed in coming articles. Be patient. The last article in this series will wrap it all up nicely by telling why the first five articles matter one wit and what to do next.

A deadly monster. Part 2: Its outmatched and divided opposition America's military-national security, industrial, political triumvirate goes on killing, maiming and torturing while tolerating the fragmented opposition to it as a safety valve for preventing pressure to build for creating a really strong and unified opposition. The current status of antiwar, peace and nonviolent groups; foundations promoting peace and security, and social movements are briefly reviewed.

Some of those realities are reviewed. A few possible scenarios of what might happen if those realities are left to follow their course are pondered. Finally, a model of confrontation proposed for keeping any of those scenarios from happening is summarized.

This article is a step forward in finding an answer to that question.

MOJO and Amnesty International: Two cases of acquiescence? I was asked by MOJO and Amnesty International re "deadly drones" to "Urge the US government to follow the "rule book" on lethal force that already exists: international human-rights law and, in the exceptional circumstances where it applies, international humanitarian law as well." I replied with two sentences. I will not tell you what they were. You should have the opportunity just as I did for a spontaneous reaction.
