The Wall Street protest has been physically dismantled, but its message is reverberating all across the world; people are tired of lies, and enraged at tyrannical big business. The idea of Corporation was a good thing; it meant that people believed in the company, much like a country, and like a country, the company had values and would take care of its people whether consumer, partner or employee.

It’s economic gain first, and everything else later, wrapped up in a sleek PR package and multi-million-dollar advertising campaigns. The outside world sees a pretty picture, and gets to live on, happily ignorant.
Until the time comes when the veneer cracks, and the truth comes shining through.
