Corporations cannot be relied upon to reform or restrain themselves, but at the same time governments which are already the handmaidens of corporatist interests are not going to be inclined to institute new regulations and restrictions that bite the hand that feeds them.
Who will serve as Sheriff, when government is corrupted by wealthy funders? Pollard has specific recommendations. Serious ones, well deserving a lifetime free ride at Heritage, or some other Think Tank. Somehow we ourselves, blog by blog, pocket meeting by pocket meeting, must act as idea-amplifiers, since the Think Tanks, like the Pundits, and the Corporate-owned, advertising-supported media, are all working off the same self-serving corporate script. Finding truth as the last element in a thought process that starts with the bottom line, passes through Marketing, the Office of General Counsel, the Office of Governmental Affairs, and ends with some PR. "Live in truth," ye Think Tank thinkers, and tremble as your great god, the gilded calf, topples into the public square. Find honest work.
