Information Control

Apologists for corporate capitalism love to equate it with freedom.  Big Brother would be proud of this claim, and jealous of its success.

The truth is that corporate capitalism/market totalitarianism is as dependent on information control as state totalitarianism was.

If you doubt this, inquire.

You might start by watching the first 2 minutes of this video, which shows “Mythbusters” host Adam Savage explaining how the credit-card corporations squashed his show’s expose of the extreme ease of hacking/stealing RFID codes, which are now widely used (and heavily advertised as a great breakthrough) to speed up credit-card purchases.

This story is the tiniest tip of a humongous, virtually un-discussed iceberg.
