Great link man

Was most surprised by Monsanto. The former CEO works in my office building and is a friend.

Why are the bulk of them Dem's though?

There are a LOT more intersections than those listed under 'Media'.

Edit: There are also intersections by marriage. IE, husband works for the White House; wife works for CBS news.

I don't want this thread to be anti capitalist, its intention is to highlight the ugly reality of fascism, which is a serious concern.


Stop calling it "fascism" for Christ's sake. Is it plutocratic? Yes. Is there cronyism and corruption? Yes. But simply calling this "fascism" is ridiculous and shows a lack of understanding of what Fascism was or an intentional desire to mislabel it Fascism to serve your own political agenda.

The below infographic viscerally demonstrates the “revolving door phenomenon,” whereby staff from big business are brought on in government lobbying or legislative positions relating to their previous jobs—often going back and forth between both the public and private sectors.
I get why people are uncomforatble with this. But who should draw up regulations? People with zero experience in industry? We *could* have people with psychology degrees drawing up engineering specifications for the government. But I can't recommend it.

Honestly, if anything this is (yet antoher) reason to neuter government. It doesn't matter who works in a feckless government.

And also recognize that when capitalism is destroyed by human nature we call it 'crony' but when human nature disrupts communism its just called communism.


They both destroy free markets, rewarding people that are not benefitting society the most, and lower the quality of living overall.
