Thank you for introducing this film. I hope it comes to Las Cruces. Now that our government -- legislature, executive branch, courts and news media are owned and controlled by the major corporations, it is even more important to support movements like the Greens and other activists. Hmm, corporations and religios zealots are enjoying greater freedom while we lose our human rights, don't you think?

Corporations and relegious zealots.
Perhaps has something to do with the domination factor.
The quality of corporate subservience to the profit motive
is astonishing in its criminal social mentality.
And it goes on, and on, and on,
and is not very much a subject of discussion
in my daily city newpaper.
I remember a statement from Noam Chomsky.
Paraphrased. The corporate and political powers
dont' care what anyone thinks. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks.
What matters is what you / people/ whoever, does, do.
The mindset of the population who follow the Albuquerque Daily newspaper
think what the paper thinks.
It provides them with the paramaters of discussion.
And recently, I've been noticing this phrase "talking points"
come up, as in, one party or the other has "talking points"
concerning current issues. Like its all some kind of little
school room debate, and whoever wins the most points gets the trophy.
And everybody down here in the street gets to watch the show, and even express our opinion. Go ahead and express your opinion. Scream at the top of your lungs. Just don't, whatever you do, actually do something.
Just go to work, and pay your bills, and the corporate Godfather will insure that your peace of mind is in good faith with divine intention.
I would think that this film, The Corporation, will come out on DVD sooner or later, hopefully sooner. Second time through the theatre did'nt draw the crowd it did the first time a year ago. Unfortunately, it's what you might call a "special interest" film, and has not gotten the big go-around that Farenhiet 9/11 did. The chasm between those who see and appreciate it, and those who will not see it, whether they actually sit in front of it or not, is wide.

John, you have introduced such an important and valuable contribution here. As we all know, our politicians come from corporations and return to them when they leave office. Many are rewarded for their support of corporate profits during their tenure and continue the cycle of abuse, neglect and greed of humanity as one body when they leave office. It is just a revolving door. "Buyer Beware" is truly a slogan that can be translated into--Humanity Beware. We are an endangered species as long as we have CEO's and corporations calling the shots. What can we do about it?

Sixth day of the Rhythmic Moon; kin 144; Yellow Magnetic Seed, Guided by Flowering; December 18. We are dwelling in the belly of the beast, and we are in our hearts very indigestible to this devourer of souls. This beast shall succumb to its own misery and putrefy, and out of the soil of the rotting corpse shall the true spirit of human life take root and flower. There has always been and continues to be the world of the enlightened ones who know the path of empathy and truth. As the illusory world of domination and greed melts in its own cesspool, the dragon cowers further into darkness and its blind thrashings topple its monument to itself. It is for those of us who seek the true light to build anew cities of light where men and women are once again true brothers and sisters. We have always been here in the countryside and in the cities of every continent and island, and the darkness surrounding us seems to get very dark at times, but we are the light, and without us, humanity is surely doomed. We do not need to worry about what we need to do, for we are doing it by being who we are, and all of our decisions shall be in accordance with the intention of truth and the nurturing of life. We are not light in victory over darkness, nor in the domination over darkness. We are a culmination in the evolutionary process which has brought the human into being. Not every member of the species gets that far, but more and more of us are, and this is the only direction there is to go, and any alternative is a dead end. Make your decisions from an evolutionary point of view. We are going there. You can tell those around you where you are going and invite them to the path, but it is each and every ones decision, depending on how deeply they have been gifted and taught to see. Some of the light you put forth shall fall upon brick walls, and some shall shine through crystal mirrors. We are everywhere, in places oftentimes where one might least expect to find us, and we are always home.

This is very beautiful and meaningful response for those of us living as "strangers in a strange land." I know that you are right on with the direction we are headed and with the recognition that "we are the culmination in the evolutionary process. Thank you very much.
