Marianne Williamson on Corporations

Author & Democratic Presidential Challenger

 


Rise up against the false God of corporate economics

Now it is time for a generation of Americans to rise up again, for an amoral economic system has turned short-term profits for huge multi-national corporations into a false god. And this new false god takes precedence over the safety and the health and the well-being of we the American people and the people of the world and the planet on which we live.

Reverse the 2017 corporate income tax cut

Williamson on Corporate Income Taxes: Reverse the 2017 corporate cut.

TWO CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: Kirsten Gillibrand; Kamala Harris.

Some candidates, such as Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand and author Marianne Williamson, say they want to get rid of the 2017 cut entirely.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand supports a 0.1% tax on the sale of stocks, bonds and derivatives. Author Marianne Williamson wants to eliminate preferential tax treatment of exchange traded funds.

Corporate interests control the political process

Corporate interests--not the people of the United States--for all intents and purposes now own America.

Moneyed interests control the political process, routinely pouring so many millions of dollars into so many political campaigns as to have completely corrupted the process. This is not a secret anymore. The health and well-being of corporate structures are placed before the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

Gargantuan economic concerns, whose financial interests are unabashedly placed ahead of the collective good, pour through the halls of our government like lava. We do not spend billions upon billions of dollars more to support certain industries than to support our children for any other reason than that organized business interests can afford highly paid lobbyists to make it happen, in both legal and illegal ways. The influence of money on the political process is a fast-growing cancer threatening to destroy our democracy.
