Government and Party and Corporation Merge

-- by Dave Johnson

I've written in the past with examples of of the Thin Line Between Company and Party (and here and here.) Well those are old news now - warnings foreseeing what is occurring now.

Today David Sirota at Sirotablog catches how the thin line is now between the government and The Party and the corporations. In Sirotablog: CAFTA: White House Caught Peddling Corporate Invitations he writes,

Specifically, the White House is using taxpayer resources to urge people to attend events being put on by Fedex, Citigroup, and Western Union to promote this corporate-written free trade deal (you can see the official invitation being blasted out by the White House here in Word format - notice the corporate logos). Most brazenly, the White House asks that invitees RSVP directly to the White House - as if there is now no distinction between these corporations (who have given more than $2 million to Republicans in the last election cycle alone) and the White House.
Party and government and corporation have merged.

Watch your backs.

I guess that brings up the F word. As Mussolini said "Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power".

Funny you should mention fascism.

George W. Bush really did hit the trifecta: Corporate-State-Church.

Heh.
