Anti-Empire Report by William Blum.
Twice in recent times the federal government in Washington has undertaken major studies of many thousands of federal jobs to determine whether they could be done more efficiently by private contractors. On one occasion the federal employees won more than 80% of the time; on the other occasion 91%. Both studies took place under the George W. Bush administration, which was hoping for different results. The American people have to be reminded of what they once knew but seem to have forgotten: that they dont want BIG government, or SMALL government; they don't want MORE government, or LESS government; they want government ON THEIR SIDE.
As to corporations, we have to ask: Do the members of a family relate to each other on the basis of self-interest and greed?
Speaking in very broad terms
slavery gave way to feudalism
feudalism gave way to capitalism
capitalism is not a timelessly valid institution but was created to satisfy certain needs of the time
capitalism has outlived its usefulness and must now give way to socialism
the ultimate incompatibility between capitalist profit motive and human environmental survival demands nothing less.
