13. Awesome! Intelectuals all around the world are standing up against big corps...
That happened here in the CAFTA referendum. Along with labor unions, faculty members of the state universities were the first to say a loud "NO!".

People, even those who stand to gain a benefit (albeit a small one, when compared to the US), are starting to realize that big corporations are only looking for themselves and not for the people, especially the low and middle classes. That's the case in Costa Rica, that's the case in India, that's the case in Mexico and I hope that's the case in the US too.
