    I know, it's a boneheaded question, but I want to hear as many responses as possible. I'll compile my own answers later and post them here.

    Corporations are a tool. Tools aren't inherently bad, it depends on how they are used.

    Corporations only fuck people over if those at the top plan to fuck over the employees, the workers allow their exploitation, the politicians look the other way, and the consumer is too ignorant to care.

    By adding sodium flouride to water supplies everywhere and using fake research to hype it as a health benefit. It is actually extremely hazardous to the pineal gland and kills braincells.
    So does mercury which is now in a lot of fish.
    And aspartame which is used as a sugar substitute in diet sodas.
    In fact there isn't many exceptions to a basic rule that if a major food or pharmaceutical has produced it, it will try to keep you dumb and lethargic in one way or another.

    The sort of tldr version is that major corporations, media heads, and world governments are part of a greater conspiracy head of unimaginably evil cancerous sociopaths laying down the foundations to a new world order. They intend to collapse the dollar, and when all hell breaks lose in the now overwhelming lower class, they will offer a solution that involves a ruthless police state, constant surveillance of every person on Earth, and a global government/currency managed by a central banking system.

    My own list to spark more ideas:


    Imperialism: war is good business for weapons manufacturers, corporations, banks, and the military industrial complex. Military bases are set and maintained to keep territory and power, which maintains wealth. New territory acquires new resources and is great place for outsourcing.

    Maintaining the status quo: The “kyriarchy”, the interweaving of different forms of oppression (racism, sexism, “sexuality-phobia”, classism etc.) benefits those on top, mostly rich white men who could accumulate the wealth and power other groups couldn’t because of various inequalities

    Lobbying: Corporations and other privately owned entities buy politicians to influence laws in their favor.

    Bourgeoisie exploitation of the proletariat: classic Marxism. The capitalist profits from his workers’ labor but only pays them a small portion of the value of their labor.

    Rat race: The whole of consumerism. Work, work, run, run, chase after the latest product/cultural ideal to obtain “happiness” only to chase after another one a moment later. People living as perpetual teenagers, daily going to school/work, resentfully obliging their superiors/teachers/bosses, and spending their free time on drugs, sex, and entertainment. Go to school -> go to work -> buy -> spend -> get married -> have children -> retire -> die. People live as hamsters, running on their wheels in their cages to keep the machine going. The capitalists share a symbiotic relationship with their livestock. Supply and demand.

    Dept/interest downward spiral

    Excessive advertising: drowns people in a sea of irrelevant information while giving the “freedom” to choose an endless variety of trivial options.

    Outsourcing: moving business to 3rd world countries to avoid legal/ethical constraints in the West and have much cheaper workers who will work in pigshit for 5 cents an hour.

    Monopolies: swallows smaller businesses so a few big corporations can exert their control.

    Institutionalized religion: is very much like a political party or a business except the currency is cultural narratives. Gods, relics, salvation etc. are products, and religions keep devotees in a hamster wheel of customs and moral imperatives, not dissimilar to the rat race of the material world.

    Other currencies of corporations: information, cultural narratives, rights/privileges etc.

    4 layers of society: army to exert power and control on the outside -> consumer population kept distracted and stupid -> police to keep the people inside in line -> corporations and their head honchos on top.

    Poisoning our food and water.

    While I like the idea you people realize there truly is a struggle against good and evil in the universe, however: "Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence." - Napoleon

    But the central bankers are evil. But Rothschild being anything like the Bavarian Illuminati, whose objectives were to destroy all the monarchies to mass create philosopher stones (which is a state of spiritual awareness) through reeducation programs of the masses, is not the objective of the world's global elite if we are to accept they are evil.

    Evil has many faces, but the evil killing the world is not an evil whose intent is the creation of philosopher stones. They just want to enslave us all under neoliberalism, if that. I think they are just greedy fucks who don't give a shit about anything.

    There was a group that fought against the International Jewish menace, they were called the fascists and history remembers them as villians. Why? Cause the Jews won and rewrote history to their benefit.

    Instead of having business control us and fuck us over we should give the government the power and money to control us and fuck us over. Everything will be great then.
