I hope 'waxing america' can address the issue of corporate speech and personhood(Santa Clara v Southern Pacific and Buckley v Valeo) in corrupting Wisconsin politics. Issue ads are presently before the Public Accountability Board and there is hope that corporations and wealthy individuals can be brought to justice for hiding behind loopholes created by their own corporate lawyers and abetted by corrupt legislators.
Corporate speech is an oxymoron for only human being can speak, question, dialogue etc. about matter of the common good. 'Corporate persons' is a fiction created by corporate speech on pursuit of greater concentrations of power and wealth in the hands of fewer and fewer real persons. Democracy demands the greatest possible distribution of power and wealth among the citizenry...the very opposite of a corporate polity.
Corporatism in essence is authoritarian and totalitarian, requiring a large military to protect its acquisitions. Fascism, Nazism, Sovietism...are recent examples of this ideology. What will we call US corporatism?
Americanism is a good start.
