The open corporate takeover of government has begun

This 7-minute video tells a very disturbing story of how those given the job of acting as mere "representatives" of the public are increasingly utilising crises to transfer power from the public (who elect them) to corporate houses (who fund them).

But for this transfer of power to happen in a democracy, the public must first willingly handover an inordinate amount of power that is rightfully their's to "representatives" who constitute a "government". The trouble (and tyranny) begins when the public begins to believe that a government's role is to "rule" and "provide" for them - and not merely to "represent" them...

Incidentally, it was an American, Benjamin Franklin, who once said that anyone who is willing to trade liberty for a sense of security, deserves neither.
