I think that governments are as bad as corporations, perhaps worse, because they have allowed corporations to redefine their purpose. Governments are no longer interested in governing their individual countries or societies , according to the basic human needs of their citizens. Instead, our countries are governed in order to enable corporations to complete their corporate objectives. I think that makes governments worse than corporations because t…heir only purpose seems to be to design and implement policies which provide new grounds for new corporate products. Thereby completely negating their very purpose (to organize and take care of their citizens) yet they cannot be questioned thus remaining untouchable because their actions are performed under ‘the government’ cloak. Private and individual environments or spaces, as well as conservation areas/natural heritage sites/natural resources, etc., are declared government property and used to house, deploy or in some other way promote new corporate products, or they themselves are transformed into corporate products. Corporations, whose true identity is (and has always been) international, have found a way (because of the digital technologies) to erase their national identities and cross national borders. I think, primarily because they have been able to infiltrate and then, ultimately, transform the purpose of ‘the modern government’.
Governments are no longer attempting to determine how their new polices or law/act amendments are going to affect their citizens. They are more interested in determining what they can get away with, how to conceal their changes, how much their citizens can and will put up with, rather than how it will affect them.
