GlaxoSmithKline another corporate beast found to be doing what comes naturally to them, fiddling. The pharmaceutical giant has been fined $3 billion for fraud. It seems that this particular corporate beast behaved like a true capitalist and put the profit of its shareholders before the health of the public at large. Ignoring the consequences of its action on the users of its drugs it promoted its best-selling antidepressants for unapproved uses and failed to report safety data about a top diabetes drugs, according to American federal prosecutors. The $3 billion agreement also includes civil penalties for improper marketing of a half-dozen other drugs. It just goes on and on, the big corporate beasts fiddle their tax returns, lie, bribe and indulge in price fixing, the banks fiddle the interest rate, and the rich celebrities stash their loot out of sight of the tax man. While you and I pick up the tab and suffer the consequences of their corruption.
If you make me pay taxes, I'll just leave.
It doesn't have to be this way, there is an alternative to this corporate fascism that we live under. We have the resources, and the imagination to create a system that sees to the needs of all our people, a system built on co-operation, sustainability and mutual aid. We don't need profit, it is the leeches and the parasites that need profit to feed their ego and their greed. We don't need them, they need us. We mine, make, grow, harvest, and distribute everything on this planet, our world would be richer if we didn't care this baggage of scum on our backs. Capitalism is just a man made economic system, it is not set in tablets of stone, we created this nightmare system, we can destroy it and send it to the dustbin of history. However time is running out, we have to start now, before it destroys all of us.
