Do you want to help? Are you at home with a computer and a bit of time? It would really help if someone who is good with info could post the TOP 50 WORST THINGS CORPORATIONS HAVE DONE IN THE LAST TEN YEARS (borrowing the best of the best --- the most outrageous of the outrageous clear and solid facts from the films INSIDE JOB, Capitalism a Love Story and THE CORPORATION). It would be good to list those films as well.

The press will be asking lots of questions about "Why Are We Against Wall Street". I think Americans have a general feeling about what happened and what is happening but a list like this with a paragraph on each of the 50 worst things would really put some meet on the bone and help people who have the "vague feeling that something is wrong" go a bit further and help explain to others why they support our movement.

Ideally it would be just a title and short paragraph on each (not necessary but would be even stronger with a link to credible source if available). The best list would be one that is written in plain language that your average American (whatever that is) can read without a lot of effort. It should be free of a lot of accusations and hyperbole and should just stick to the simple facts.

Also would be helpful if it represented a wide array of sectors of the economy. Many people mistakenly think oil, defense and other industries are the only bad guys. It would be really helpful to broaden the horizons here and really blow people away with a solid list of well documented crimes, infractions and outrageous actions. The kind of stuff that will get people solidly behind us all over the country and the world.

John Bassist A. Collect taxes. period. Taxes are merely part of the caste system and one of the bubbles that they ride. Our government was founded on the sound principle of havin gthe government itself both print and distribute its own money. The old banking system infiltrated and took over the USA and so the USA is still more or less owned lock stock and barel and controlled by the British Crown.

John Bassist C. Create any federal boundaries or laws regarding the creation of unions, which rightly should take precendence over corporations in government because they represent PEOPLE not Corporations. Thus Government shall not restrict the right of people to form unions and to seek just compensation for employment.

John Bassist D. Own property for rent. Either you sell the property or you keep it vacant. Renting is in essence a form of masked slavery to prevent people from owning their own home. Every person in America should own their own home and probably to start, own it by virtue of inhabiting it.

‎4. The legal notion that a corporation is a legal person or may be is hereby rescinded. Corporations are not legal persons, and their actions are the actions in fact of assorted persons who make those decisions. Legal Representation is also now hereby restored, and ancillatory to this (part B) It shall be the job of the legal representative to run an open source forum and wiki on which the public can work through problems and make its views known. This direct communication via the internet shall replace all of the back door secret secret lies and spies against the public games that have been going on. From now on we the people demand direct access to our representatives, the right to tell them what to do, and the right to keep corporations and meta entities out of it. If a CEO of company X wants to talk about his company he can do so on the forum with everyone else and in full view of the public. All gifts and all donations to any public representative (congress, senate, mayor, city council, etc...) are hereby illegal. You get payed a flat rate by the government to do the job, and its a nice high wage because otherwise your not legally allowed to accept gifts while in office or because of favors after or any of that . Government by secret favors is now over.
