American Fascism: Corporatism

it's not govt that's the problem; it's corporatism--govt/business incest
A
market free of government interference is what most Republican voters think
they are supporting, but what the Republican Party supports –
especially in the actions of its members in office (
Ron
Paul
excepted) – is not
free markets but corporatism. The difference between genuine free
markets and corporatism is essentially the difference between a
politically free country and Hitler's


Germany


or Mussolini's

Italy


: corporatism is basically
fascist in nature, with business and government entwined in an unhealthy
embrace of the
financially
powerful
with the politically
powerful
. Regular,
non-powerful people are simply out of luck. A perfect (and rather
sickening) example is the USDA
forbidding
cattle ranchers (and any private firm) from testing their own cattle for
Mad Cow disease, something unthinkable in a free society.
Some
years ago, noted philosopher
Ringo
Starr
described an
important and now-famous discovery: "Everything government touches
turns to crap."

If you're a foreigner and are gonna on a Tibet Travel or Tibet Tour, it's better to consult professionals on Tibet Travel Information or Tibet Travel Service. They may advise you to take part in the Tibet Travel Packages or Tibet Tour Packages because it's cheaper and the cheapest way of traveling is by Tibet Train. But travel abroad often needs to apply for a series of procedures such as visa, of course you need a Tibet Travel Permit. A Tibet Travel Operator or Tibet Travel Agency is the best way to choose for you.
