I wanted to comment on the recent news of Halliburton's move to the Dubai.
THOUGHTS ON HALLIBURTON's MOVE TO DUBAI
Halliburton's move to the Dubai tax-haven simply confirms what I discuss in detail in The Secret History of the American Empire. The corporatocracy has no concept of "nationalism" or "good citizenship" and that its executives will go wherever the money is greatest and the laws most lax. They do not see their jobs as being good citizens, but only as maximizing profits for themselves and their biggest share-holders.
We must all take actions to change this. No more sitting back and zoning out on TV or even a good book. It is our responsibility to demand better. Capitalism may be here to stay, but we do not need to accept Imperialist Capitalism. Lets demand Democratic -- and transparent -- Capitalism.
Our coprorations enjoy all the legal rights of an individual. Now they must accept the responsibilities required of individuals. You and I must stand up and make this happen. If you haven't yet taken time to get informed on this happening and its implications, you should invest in doing so. I've provided a few links below. Investigate for yourself.
I know many of you are already taking actions every day to make positive changes. I invite you to continue writing to me to share your ideas, so I can share them with others.
