Government, Corporate Personhood, and the Web

The idea of corporate personhood and that government represents persons, has led to some strange behavior. One great byproduct of "all knowledge is on the Web" is that people, whether corporations or not, may, through extraordinary efforts in organizing data, be exposed to meaningful information.

Here is a browser plug-in that has the potential for stirring the pot.
(Of course, not much has happened with my last post on potential policy changing software.)

Let's see:

1. Campaigns are becoming more and more expensive to run.

2. Not surprisingly, studies show that big doners have more access to politicians.

3. Indeed, studies have also shown that policy outcomes are biased overwhelmingly in favour of the affluent, and that there is virtually no relationship between policy outcomes and the desires of less advantaged groups.

4. Increasingly, the wealth of this country is becoming more and more concentrated in the hands of a few (aided no doubt by their level of influensce in government).

5. An oligarchy is government by a small group of people.
