Why a Corporate-Alien Blog?

Throughout history, tyrannical dictators tried to win the hearts and minds of the people they ruled. But sooner or later they were overthrown. They always got a certain amount of zealots under their control but never the majority. Modern governments and corporations have taken up this challenge: control of the hearts and mind of the people through laws and media propaganda. Many people don't realize the extent of control they already have on us. The more power they obtain, the more the average people lose their individuality.

In the United States, for decades following World War II, there was a rivalry with our arch-enemy the Soviet Union. This rivalry was referred to as the cold war. During this period the word "communism" was a dirty word. Why were the communists so evil? The answer was always that they suppressed individual rights. To fight against communism was to fight for freedom. Many American young men died in Vietnam because they were told that if the communists won, they would take over the world and all freedom would be lost. As we all know, the North Vietnamese Communists won, but nothing happened.

The late 80's and early 90's marked the end of Communism in Russia and the other countries they controlled. This was supposedly the birth of freedom. But during that period, big corporations and big government prospered in the west. As they did the working classes were becoming more and more oppressed. Under the Soviet system the party leaders lived the good life, while the majority had very little. In the US the corporate ceo's and politicians have all the wealth, while the majority have very little. But the trick in western countries is to make the workers believe that they can have anything through loans and credit cards. You can have a lot of material things, for which you spend a lifetime of misery worrying about how you're going to pay off your massive debt. In effect, the Corporate Aliens have done a better job of subjugating the masses than Hitler, Stalin, or Mao. Everyone living under a tyrant was afraid to do or say anything that opposed the party, but in the US we have "freedom" as we are always reminded whenever George Bush gives a speech.

The purpose of this site is to question the meaning of "freedom" in a corporate driven society. The corporate culture of today is actually very foreign to the average individual's ideals. This is why we refer to purveyors of this culture as Corporate Aliens. We will be looking at ways to peacefully challenge these aliens for the improvement of our mental and physical well being.

You'll be able to tell your story soon. That page on corporate aliens will be ready within the week.

I don't like to talk about myself too much that's why my profile is so limited.

Thank you for your comment.

Interesting reading and perspectives. We all have thoughts and inputs on alot of various subject matters, sharing ideas is among the things for a learning experience. I am one who is not in love with corporate american and have been a small business dude trying to get by and this is almost impossible now. Knowing what we have witnessed in our lives, can you imagine then next generations??? Look at our current lack of role models and bascially a culture of death, kind of looks like Rome, Greece and they sunk at one time. The good news is I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance (ha-ha).
