As the country debates the "War on Terror" let me add some perspective and balance.
Tobacco companies kill approx. 400,000 Americans every single year. So far over 100 MILLION people have been killed worldwide by tobacco companies.
I'm not going to list here all the others killed by - and all the societal problems brought by - corporate malfeasance. Global warming and other environmental destruction, lack of health care coverage, stolen pensions, the list would go on for pages.
Therefore, I propose that any effort, any spending, any mobilization that we put out to fight the "War on Terror" -- we do that tenfold working to bring corporations back under the control of the people.
