: : Actually, if you check the proceedings of the last Bilderberg meeting but one, you will see that it was agreed that there was no overall opposition to the idea of armed security forces reporting directly to corporations. Or, to put it more bluntly, companies can raise their own armies.

: SDF: Can you find a Web site about this? I'd be interested to know what-all they said...

If the MAI is passed eventually, transnationals will be able to prosecute governments (but the reverse will not apply) and if the Bilderberg motion is any indication of policy movement, companies will be able to raise their own armed militias.

: SDF: We'll have to elect a government intent upon the wholesale termination of corporate plutocracy...

: : Where does that leave elected government? "Surplus to requirements" is the phrase that springs to my mind...

: SDF: Such surplus as will end abruptly with the end of the Era of Cheap Oil...
