Thomas Jefferson warned about the rise of corporations. The writers of the Constitution agreed that it was a dangerous thing to have a corporation so powerful that the government would be captive to it. Some are of the opinion that corporations are controlling our nation and our lives. Is there an emergence of a corporate state. If so, how did this happen? In this compelling dialogue, award winning author, international teacher, lecturer and psychotherapist Thom Hartmann tracks the history of the corporation, and tells the astonishing story of how corporations acquired their power, and cites examples of abuse and manipulation.
