Do you think the rampant economic corruption in the US is any worse than the influence by Big Agra/Big Pharma?

There's obvious overlap between the lobbying powers in the world and it seems like literally EVERY industry on planet Earth is corrupt - agriculture, medicine, military, environmental, politics, guns, catholic priesthood, everything. Some of these industries overlap onto others.

I think it's safe to place MOST of the blame on Obama, but obviously companies like Monsanto and Kellogg play a major role in the removal of factual nutrition from the medical school curriculum and in agriculture.

Which of these do you think is a bigger issue: the health state of society due to rampant corruption by Big Agra/Big Pharma or the banking industry which also contains a large religious presence?

Of course, Madison is undoubtedly rolling in his grave to see how corruption and the Rothschilds & Co have exploited the EC. I do believe the intention was for great and fair people to be running things.

Also from Madison: '... primary function of government is to protect the minority of the opulent from the majority...' This was justification for the Electoral College. Madison was drawing from Aristotle's theory of a poor majority's inevitable 'leveling impulse' (per Chomsky). Basically... any TRUE democracy WILL evolve into socialism.

any sector of a society where you have someone with a huge amount of money who's sole purpose is to get even more without regard for anything else, you have corruption. if you think anyone as powerless as a current sitting President of the USA can be credited with most of the blame for the ills of your country you are buying what big money is selling.

One in the same. Old European money coming back to power through a two-hundred year propaganda campaign. Stripping away all those rights our predecessors had secured us. While we waste away under the spells of bread and circuses.

The banking industry, specifically the fed, wb, ibs are the root of the problem. Biggest banker in the world, 150 years ago: Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws . quotes also, thomas Jefferson: ???????? "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.", "History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and it's issuance." ??? James Madison

I am convinced that the agreement [Bretton Woods] will enthrone a world dictatorship of private finance more complete and terrible than and Hitlerite dream. It offers no solution of world problems, but quite blatantly sets up controls which will reduce the smaller nations to vassal states and make every government the mouthpiece and tool of International Finance.?? It will undermine and destroy the democratic institutions of this country - in fact as effectively as ever the Fascist forces could have done - pervert and paganise our Christian ideals; and will undoubtedly present a new menace, endangering world peace. World collaboration of private financial interests can only mean mass unemployment, slavery, misery, degradation and financial destruction. Therefore, as freedom loving Australians we should reject this infamous proposal. -- Labor Minister of Australia, Eddie Ward, during the inception of the World Bank and Bretton Woods, he gave this warning.
