A new thought on corporate ownership…

Here we sit. Humans… absolutely removed from the environment that used to control our every decision. We have built systems and structures, constructed and added knowledge upon knowledge as we have moved through the ages. Civilizations rise and fall, governments come into being and then dissolve but humanity continues and the one thing that stands tall in our collective world today, yesterday and tomorrow is money. Yes money – So here is an interesting slant looking at our world today.

There is a global economic crises. Some economies are struggling for air while others are managing to hold their ground but the general feeling around the world is that things are not good. I can’t pretend to know the cause – in the back of my mind I blame America, but then I blame everything on the American’s, weak knees, tender kidneys, trust me, it’s easier that way. Get on the bandwagon – don’t be afraid.

America’s economy seems to be spluttering and perhaps behind closed doors Obama is crying into his hands and pulling out grey eyebrow hairs with tweezers but it seems the complete collapse is happening in Europe. Where is that – it’s that continent above Africa, you know the country I’m talking about, Africa. So, various countries in Europe are hitting rock bottom like a meth addict stealing Mom’s TV, ROCK BOTTOM.

My brother recently moved to Spain and I couldn’t help laughing because even though he doesn’t have the work ethic of a Korean school girl he still doesn’t take a siesta at 3pm and he still cannot find a stitch of work there. It was upon discussing this global problem of countries going bankrupt that my thinking took me in this direction.

What’s happening in our world?

Well besides slowly killing the planet (yawn) and killing ourselves (yawn) and destroying everything we as humans touch (yawn) as a wretched virus that is puking our venom onto the surface of the earth (yawn) governments seem to be running out of money. EEEEEEEEKKK!!!! It can’t be.

So the thinking continued:

Why does one government not bail out their neighbour I thought, why would Germany say no to Spain’s cries for help. I’ll call the German chancellor right after my ‘siesta’. Well, would you throw money at any organization that could become a black hole of never ending debt. Government to government – why get involved – good trade relations? Just let them go bankrupt and buy everything for nothing, cheap as chips. Liquidation sale now on! True they may bring the value of your real-estate down but then even if the house next door is falling down sometimes it’s easier not to get involved.

So then…who could save us?

Well, perhaps a single multi-national corporation could step in, or two teaming groups that could come in and raise Spain out of economic troubles. Why would they do this? Because of the agreement that they then make with that Government to be the sole providers of PRODUCT X to the millions of peoples of Spain for X number of years. They could buy the government and by proxy millions of loyal customers at this Governmental liquidation sale. Unconstitutional you say – well lets change that pesky constitution to outline clearly that we the company do now own you the people – and if you don’t like it by all means leave. Oh, by the way we just jacked up the airfare so that 99.5 percent of the populous cannot afford to leave, but you could walk and you’re welcome.

What I am saying is that economically governments seem to be failing, most of them – and if it ever got to a place where organizations and companies step in to help, not for the greater good but for the larger greenback then where does that leave us. Who is the great controller and how do we ask them where it all began? Has this already happened on the side, hidden from view and in the shade of corporate aeroplane wings? It is clear that those multi-national corporations can be larger than governments and how deep those strings pull will never be clearly demonstrated.

The truth is that small business, among other factors, keeps the economy alive and these people, the tangible people, the individuals in the trenches of our bustling society are the ones that end up paying for the ups and downs of an unstable economy. The middle class is always the group that are squeezed too tight. The mega-wealthy will find ‘multi-national’ ways around laws that are bound and localized to governments and the poor, well the poor have nothing to pay so it is the people in the middle, the ones who do pay their taxes and the ones upon whose shoulders this entire society is raised, that end up bearing the weight of recession. What can be done? Not much I’m afraid.

Pat yourself of the back  because if you are reading this you are likely a pillar of this society in all it’s cracked up, messed up, wonderful, loveliness and it’s you who are paying for the recession, it’s you who breathes heavily when the gas price hikes even higher again because of a storm somewhere in the South Atlantic or whatever. We pay, we pay, we pay for everything.

So, like me you can solve the problems of the world in quiet thought before re-casting your line into the river, shake your head and shrug muttering, “Well, that’s 10 minutes of my life I’ll never get back”.
