An Animal Farm moment... "pigs - humans" "humans - pigs" ... its really a partnership and in the US its such a revolving door between the "state" (politicians) and the corporations (robber barons, plutocrats, etc) that I often shake my head at people who fear government (where you get *some* say) versus corporate dictatorships (where you get *no* say).
