29. We are farm animals for the one percent, owned for profit from our labor

and, increasingly, for what they can extract from us by charging us for every aspect of our lives.

In the ongoing Social Security/Medicare fight, we see that they are now resisting paying to maintain us past the time when we are profitable to them...just as farmers slaughter hens when they no longer produce eggs...

They are also building their monopoly of our food supply and are gradually transitioning us to cheap, low-grade food.....Purina "People Chow."

This is what happens when corporations grow in power and size to the point that the people on top no longer must interact with those on the bottom. Corporate ethics replace human ethics, and profit is permitted to become the primary goal of those with power in a society. Human beings cease to be recognized as human beings, and are judged merely as sources or wasters of profit, to be managed accordingly - added or crossed out - on a balance sheet.
