I do not like Facebook.  I do not like Multinational Corporations.  Had one Multinational decided to place their advertising elsewhere I would have been happy.  This combining of Multinationals to impose their will is something altogether different, it is about Corporate power.

Just these six Corporations can throw around the same financial weight as a medium sized national economy but they have no democratic mandate.  Were six billionaire oligarchs to sit on a stage and declare to the world how they were going to control various publications globally to ensure that their ideals were obeyed there would be outrage.  How has it come to pass that control by six Multinational Corporations is accepted by the UK Broadcast Media?

These six corporations are just the thin end of the wedge. The Oligarchs are meeting regularly in organisations such as the Trilateral Commission*, Bilderberg, The Council for Foreign Relations and the World Economic Forum.  They are combining so that they can further their own agenda.  It starts with actions that most people can accept or ignore but once we have been softened up they will hit when it has most effect for their profits and power.

Organised corporate activity in politics on this scale must be stopped. It will destroy democracy.  The battle has always been between plutocracy and democracy.
